Occupational contexts are sparse in studies examining sitting-interface pressures of wheelchair users. This study evaluated 48 adults’ peak and average pressures in a manual wheelchair while they completed four functional tasks in a kitchen environment based on random assignment. Statistically significant differences occurred in the tasks with different reaching patterns. The findings inform practitioners when appraising the occupational influences on sitting-interface pressures for wheelchair users.
