Count.It does not yet have a direct fitness tracker connection for wheelchair "self-pushing." That said, the following simple conversion calculation based on calorie burn for walking vs. wheelchair will let you convert your wheelchair effort to steps or Count.It points.

  • Based on this ScienceDaily article, we believe an hour of wheelchair self-pushing burns 240 calories.

  • Based on this our standards (and a USDA chart), we believe an hour of moderate walking burns 280 calories.

  • SO, the conversion of wheelchair effort to walking is 85.71%.

In other words, for every mile covered in a wheelchair, a person earns 1,714 "steps equivalent," or 17.14 Count.It points.
