ir malfunction."

The ability to use and maintain a wheelchair effectively is a factor in life satisfaction and community participation, according to research conducted by Michael Boninger, M.D., professor and chair, Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine (Arch Phys Med Rehabil. 2012 Dec;93(12):2237-43.). Today, patients spend less time in the hospital after injury, which means less time to learn how to use and maintain their wheelchairs. More than 500 individuals with spinal cord injury will participate in COMIT, which will examine the impact of web-based training and group sessions on wheelchair skills and maintenance.
