View Full Version : Steering Wheel Resistance Specifications

10-06-2005, 05:19 AM
Hello All,

We need some information regarding the resistance of automobile
steering wheels. We are aware that steering wheel resistance is a
function of speed, road condition and car make and model. However, we
believe that there should be a range of values that can be used to
simulate upper extremity function during driving. We are also
interested in research that has or is being done with driving and
orthopaedic problems of upper extremity. We are not interested in
cognitive or visual studies related to driving.

Thank you,
