Our mission is to enable drivers to obtain the technology they need to operate a motor vehicle safely and confidently, so they can maintain their freedom and independence.

Getting Fitted for Adaptive Equipment

The first step in fitting adaptive equipment is an evaluation by one of our Certified Occupational Therapists.

During the evaluation, the occupational therapist determines the appropriate equipment for the driver based on their physical abilities. The occupational therapist will discuss vehicle and equipment options during the evaluation, such as vehicle/equipment compatibility, vehicle modifications, and vehicle types.

After the evaluation, the occupational therapist will write up a recommendation for adaptive equipment. IS THIS THE RIGHT TERMINOLOGY?

The adaptive equipment driver then selects a vendor from which to purchase the equipment and to have it installed in their vehicle.

After installation, an equipment fitting is done by our occupational therapist to ensure the equipment is installed properly and that it is properly adjusted to the driver.

The occupational therapist will then go for a drive with the driver in their vehicle to ensure that they are proficient with the new adaptive equipment.
