Predicting driving ability of stroke survivors

Published in topics in stroke rehabilitation Dr. Akinwuntan and his team from Department of Physical Therapy, Georgia Health Sciences University, Augusta, GA, USA discuss how to predict the driving performance of mildly impaired stroke survivors.

Because most stroke survivors that resume driving in the United States do so in the first year a valid predictive stroke Driver Screening Assessment tool (SDSA) is required. Therefore the group compared the predictive results of the United States version of the Stroke Driver Screening Assessment to driving performance in a high-fidelity driving simulator.
The group of physical therapists and occupational therapists found that the US version of the SDSA battery was a good predictor of driving performance of mildly impaired stroke survivors.

  1. Stroke often even though it is mild leads to many dysfunctionalities and may even causes paralysis and also causes many defects in the spinal chord but there are technologies and therapies such as trigger point injections to heal you out from these type diseases.
