Now a day wheel chair propulsion is much preferred than manual wheel turning. A normal wheel chair used for physically challenged and the tricycle users for normal people use hand drive or propulsion or foot pedal propulsion. The manual propulsion is having much scope, because the wheelchairs using by individuals is growing and requires good mobility to maintain a quality of life. Design changes have been taking place in improving manual wheel chair propulsion, viz, changes in the wheels and tires, adding gears and designing alternative propulsion systems. Still, experts and consumers are not happy with the present design changes. Studies have been going upon how to achieve the breakthrough innovations. Much fatigue could be reduced by using improved propulsion technologies.
