Together with Aalborg university we are investigating in new ways to keep warm the wheelchairs users.
Wheelchair confinement is the most frequent consequence of spinal cord injuries. Partial or complete loss of muscle control and prolonged use of the wheelchair in cold weather may lead to fast cooling of the body, especially the lower limbs if not appropriate heating measures are taken.
The project will challenge knowledge of e.g. anatomy, electrophysiology, statistics, design of experiments.
There will be more to come in the upcoming months.
