Abstract

Anthropometric data represents the characteristics of a given population and, as such, it varies accordingly. Wheelchair users have, most times, different body characteristics than able-bodied people. These differences can be noticed also in terms of anthropometric data. This paper demonstrates the differences between the results obtained in several studies where anthropometric data of wheelchair users was collected. The results of the comparisons between studies demonstrated that there are some dissimilarities on the data collected. The several studies use different data collection protocols, which compromises the results and the comparability of the results obtained. Hence, it become unclear if the data collected in these studies is accurate and valid enough to be used in other future studies.
