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 (Equivalent)" or Count.It "Points" and then enter the data manually into your Logs:

  • 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.
