Optimal Mobility Solutions specializes in driving techniques to maximize independence and safety for people with disabilities. The goal of Optimal Mobility Solutions is to help people learn to drive or return to driving after injury, illness, or disability.
The keys to your driving independence begins with a Clinical Evaluation to evaluate your physical, visual, and cognitive skills. Based on clinical findings, it is determined whether or not adaptive driving equipment is needed.
The next step is a Behind-the-Wheel Evaluation. Various types of adaptive equipment may be used in the training vehicle such as hand controls to operate the gas and brake, a left foot accelerator and steering devices. Optimal Mobility Solutions provides the training needed to use the adaptive driving equipment. This allows you to try the equipment in a safe environment to make sure it works for you, before you purchase it!
The final step in your driver rehabilitation takes place after the adaptive equipment has been installed in your personal vehicle. Optimal Mobility Solutions meets you at the adaptive equipment vendor to complete your final behind-the-wheel training session to insure your equipment was installed properly and you are happy with the results.
