Driving is an important activity of daily living. Loss of driving privileges can lead to depression, decreased access to medical care, and increased healthcare costs. The ability to drive is often affected after stroke. In approximately 30% of stroke survivors, it is clear from the onset that driving will no longer be possible. Approximately 33% of(More)
By the nature of their jobs first responders have to interact with in-vehicle devices even as they drive under challenging road conditions. In this paper we assess the state-of-the-art in creating safe in-vehicle user interfaces for first responders, and we propose six research and development priorities for future work in this realm.
We investigated the potential for predicting driving performance of a United States (US)-based population of participants using an adapted version of the Stroke Drivers’ Screening Assessment (SDSA) battery. Participants included seven first-ever stroke survivors (age 51±8 years) and 11 individuals with Hoehn & Yahr Stage 2 or 3 Parkinson’s disease (PD) (age(More)
The ability to drive is often affected in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS) because of the motor, visual, or cognitive deficits commonly associated with the condition. In this study, we investigated the accuracy with which the Stroke Driver Screening Assessment (SDSA), an established battery for the prediction of driving performance of stroke(More)
BACKGROUND Most stroke survivors who resume driving in the United States do so within the first year. More than 87% of these individuals resume driving without a formal evaluation of their fitness to drive because of the absence of standard practices and generally accepted and valid screening tools. The Stroke Driver Screening Assessment (SDSA) is an(More)
