Sam Brady - Sporting Wheelchairs

This episode Sam Brady of Glasgow University gives a paper for the BSSH Sport & Leisure History seminar on sporting wheelchairs and adaptive technology in the Paralympics. Building on his own bank of oral history interviews with practitioners he explains the way in which wheelchair users increasingly became involved in the design of their equipment and how technological change affects the way in which Paralympic sports adapt over time. You can find out more about Sam's research via his blog posts at or by following him on Twitter @SamB24
