In this study, we created a sport which applied with human augmentation technology, that is not affected by the differences in the participants' lower limbs, using a wheelchair-type body-enhancing medium that provides a new motor ability called drifting that was not possible before. The sport was played by six players, three people with non lower limb disabilities and three without lower limb disabilities, and the results showed a change in the added ability especially for their motions' accuracy. Some of these were not related to the differential status of the lower limb, while others may have been.
