Any wheelchair athletes around here ?

What motivates you as an athlete to keep going and being active? Do you think there are things that could make your training better ?

    Hey Heather, 
    I'm interested in what kind of interactive contextual feedback could athletes help training more effectively. What is important contextual information a normal sensor can't track? 
    Let me know what you think and share the questionnaire with as many people as possible. Means better prototypes to test at the end :smiley:

    it would be interesting generally to see what feedback anyone gets from training or playing sport in a wheelchair. My son plays powerchair football and he loves the speed the excitement from scoring a goal and his physio says it helps him with his core muscles as the changing direction at speed, moving about all help keep his muscles active (he has spastic diplegia with right hemiplegia and a full time powerchair user)
