Abstract

The purpose of this study is to compare and analyze the kinematic characteristics of the upper limb segments during the archery shooting of Paralympic Wheelchair Class archers (ARW2 - second wheelchair class – paraplegia or comparable disability) and Paralympic Standing Class archers (ARST - standing archery class – loss of 25 points in the upper limbs or lower limbs), where archers are classified according to their disability grade among elite disabled archers. The participants of this study were selected as seven elite athletes with disabilities, 4 ARW2, and 3 ARST. The analysis variables were 1) the time required for each phase, 2) the angle of inclination of the body center, 3) the change of trajectory of body center, and 4) the change of movement locus of bow center by phase when performing six shots in total. The ARW2 group showed a longer time than the ARST group, and the angle of the body did not show a significant difference between the two groups. Although there was no significant difference in the mean score between the two groups, it was judged that kinematic performance according to each group was, in that there was a measurable variation in kinematic variables.
