Play, Learn, Drive: How a Video Game Can Improve Power Chair Driving
Among the most challenging situations for a complex rehab clinician or ATP is whether or not a client is ready to operate a power wheelchair. This decision can be further complicated by parents or caregivers reluctant to agree to a power chair trial or assessment.
What if there were a way to conduct that assessment without using a power chair, when necessary? And what if there were a way to help clients to improve their power chair readiness in a measurable way that is also fun?
Join Gabriel Romero as he introduces Stealth Products’ i-Drive LOONZ, the video game that assesses power chair skills, collects valuable clinical input, and motivates improvement, all in a safe, engaging environment.
What You’ll Learn:
- Use the LOONZ video game to assess client readiness for power chair operation.
- Set realistic client goals for power chair driving, operation and improvement.
- Collect clinical feedback tools to assess the client’s strengths, weaknesses and progress.
- Learn how LOONZ interfaces with i-Drive, Stealth Products’ alternative driving controls system.
- Discover how LOONZ is working to achieve greater inclusion for all clients — and gamers!
