Main Article Content
The aim of the study was to conduct an exploratory systematic review related to Wheelchair Basketball, and the use of inertial devices as a novel tool to quantify internal and external load during training sessions and matches. For the search of scientific manuscripts, the following keywords were used, in English: “Basketball”, “Wheelchair” and “Inertial device”; and, in Spanish: “Baloncesto”, “Silla de ruedas” and “Dispositivo inercial”. The databases used were Web of Science and Google Scholar. Also, to limit the search, a series of document inclusion and exclusion criteria were established, to collect the most appropriate manuscripts for the subject under study. Twelve scientific papers were selected, which were classified according to the variables predetermined by the researchers. The largest number of publications related to the subject is produced in 2019, and they are mainly Quantitative empirical studies. Therefore, it is interesting to increase scientific knowledge in the WB.
