Driver Evaluations

St. Luke’s occupational therapists work with patients to assess their physical, visual and mental ability to operate a vehicle safely. Evaluations are measured against benchmarks such as reactionary times, visual acuity and decision-making abilities. Our world-class therapists use this information to guide recommendations, strategies, equipment or training. The goal is to either improve the patient’s ability, or provide an alternate strategy for transportation.
