Biomch-l,
I would like to measure the pressure/forces applied directly to a
wheelchair pushrim by the hand. Does anyone have any suggestions for
instrumentation? The pushrim tube is manufactured by aluminum alloy with a
diameter of 0.75" and a wall thickness of 0.63". Any input would be
greatly appreciated.
