The aim of the study was (1) to evaluate the maximal power using a short-term force-velocity test in disabled weight lifters and able-bodied non-athletes subjects, and (2) to find if the parameters of the force-velocity test are related to results of the weight lifted on a bench, which is a specific sport test among disable weight lifters. The force-velocity (F-V) test was used to evaluate the maximal power (Pmax), predicted maximal resistance force (F0) and velocity (V0). The test was applied to 18 disable weight lifters and 16 physical education students. The mean values of Pmax, V0 and F0 did not differ significantly between groups. In weight lifters, the weight lifted on a bench correlated significantly with Pmax and F0.It was concluded that (1) in the same F-V test condition (without lower limb support), the results obtained by the able-bodied, non-trained, but physically fit students, do not differ from that of the wheelchair weight lifters; (2) the F-V test is useful for wheelchair weight lifters, as it effectively evaluates their anaerobic power and speed-strength abilities, which is very similar to the able-bodied subjects.
