Pathways to Prevention Workshop: Can Physical Activity Improve the Health of Wheelchair Users? (Day 1)

The 2010 census estimated that 3.6 million Americans use a wheeled mobility device, such as a manual wheelchair, motorized wheelchair, or scooter. This number is projected to be four times higher by 2020. Individuals who use wheeled mobility devices often experience poorer health outcomes compared to the general population. There are some distinct health challenges related to the physical effects of long-term wheelchair use, such as shoulder overuse injuries, skin breakdown, and urinary tract disorders. Wheelchair users may also encounter barriers to accessing preventive health care and getting sufficient physical activity. This P2P workshop will assess the available scientific evidence through a systematic evidence review, invite numerous speakers to present their research, and engage with a community of wheeled mobility device users to better understand the potential benefits of physical activity interventions for people at risk of using, or currently using, wheeled mobility devices as a result of a disabling injury or illness. The following questions will be addressed: What is the evidence base on physical activity interventions to prevent obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular conditions, including evidence on harms of the interventions in people with multiple sclerosis (MS), cerebral palsy (CP), or spinal cord injury (SCI) who are at risk for or currently using a wheeled mobility device? What are the benefits and harms of physical activity interventions for people with MS...
