Abstract

The aim of this pilot-study was to evaluate the predictive quality of adriving evaluation in a simulator for people with stroke. Twenty-seven participantswith stroke completed a driving evaluation in a technically advanced drivingsimulator. The participants also completed an on-road driving evaluation with a passor fail outcome. Measures generated from the assessment tool, P-Drive, werecompared to the on-road driving evaluation, in order to determine a definitive cut-offscore. The definitive cut-off score of P-Drive was determined to 1,5 logits, howeverthis score did not show satisfactory sensitivity. Instead of a definitive cut-off score, acut-off zone of 1,4 to 1,7 logits was recommended. Six drivers within the cut-offzone were recommended for further evaluation of their driving ability.

An Evaluation of Driving Ability in a Simulator: A Good Predictor of Driving Ability After Stroke?
