In this paper, we describe how to evaluate the physical and mental burden of the driving force of wheelchair upon the wheelchair users while they are moving a wheelchair on a cross slope. We have conducted the experiment that measures driving force of hand rim on cross slopes. As a result, we have shown that a work load required at the time of slope movement can be predicted with the angle and weight of a slope. In addition, we have shown strong correlation between the physical burden and mental burden.
