Mhealth devices and metrics for people who use wheelchairs.

Every year around 2 million people become new wheelchair users around the world. As the wheelchair is a sedentary device users decondition rapidly, resulting in high rates of obesity and poor heart health. In addition users are prone to immobilising shoulder injuries, and pressure sores that result in hospitalisation.
