). 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

To determine the effect of wheelchair settings in an ecologically valid way, this should be tested with athletes in their own sports wheelchair under sport

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

propulsion strategies should also be considered when altering wheelchair setups, with wheelchair configuration having repeatedly been shown to affect propulsion techniques. For high-point players, this may involve reducing the fore–aft position to promote a reduced StrokeAng. 35 Performance factors such as

), which are important as well as optimal wheelchair configuration, for example, position of the center of gravity to be able to turn quickly. 31 Furthermore, MFTs have also been shown to be sensitive to environmental (floor surface) and equipment changes (eg, in the wheelchair-user interface). 28 The
