). Specific athlete training schedules mainly affect physical and game performance. In addition, changes in the wheelchair design and therefore wheelchair–athlete interface configuration have most impact on mobility performance. To optimally adjust wheelchair configurations to the benefit of individual

wheelchair configuration may be influential to PU development. For example, in 2018, Rice et al. ( 2018 ) observed that steeper kneeling plate angles were associated with increased anterior tibial interface pressures in wheelchair racers. Although WBB and wheelchair racing chairs differ by design and body
