The article discusses the problem of the construction of a test stand that allows simulation of wheelchair propulsion in various terrain conditions. The described test stand is a complete measuring system which allowing to analyse the parameters of the biomechanical system human-wheelchair. The described test stand allows observation of biomechanical parameters such as: centre of gravity, muscle activity, path, speed and acceleration. An important aspect of test stand is to replicate the real wheelchair motion in to laboratory conditions. The effect of the considerations taken in the article is the development of the structure, the construction of the test stand and the development of a research method using the stand.
Key words: wheelchair / propulsion / dynamometer
