Driving simulation is a preferred method of assessing patient status and rehabilitation progress with respect to the treatment of injuries ranging from minor to debilitating. Driving simulation is being used effectively by therapists for the evaluation and rehabilitation of physical, cognitive, and psychomotor challenges affecting the patient population.
Why is driving simulation such an effective tool? It is because driving simulation allows for:
- The evaluation of injured or at-risk patients in a safe and controlled environment
- The ability to produce objective, accurate, and repeatable performance measures
- Enabling assessment and treatment in a cost effective clinical environment
- The results are ecologically valid and based on a real-world task
