dc.description.abstract It is difficult to determine the aerobic capacity of wheelchair athletes by the accepted standards and methods of testing. The levels of disability and the associated functionality of the individual as well as wheelchair design itself impacts the measure of VO2 peak. VO2 peak is the maximum volume of O2 that a person's body can transport to tissue during incremental exercise. At the current time VO2 peak is the best indicator of physical fitness of an individual. en_US
