Functional fashion90460  ​Rugby is hard-hitting, fast-moving and adrenaline-fueled. But for elite Paralympic wheelchair athletes, the sport also can pose particular challenges. Close-fitting apparel can be difficult to don and doff. Shirtsleeves, rubbed constantly by carbon fiber wheels, quickly fray. Most critically, spinal cord injuries can impair the body’s ability to regulate temperature during exercise.12/13/2017 4:32:37 PMSTS_ListItem_PublishingPageshttps://engineering.wustl.edu/news/Pages/Forms/AllItems.aspx3463460https://engineering.wustl.edu12/13/2017 4:32:37 PMhtmlFalseaspx3333~sitecollection/_catalogs/masterpage/Display Templates/Search/Item_WashUNews.js
