By measuring the driver’s ability to apply force, move the limbs and to react quickly, you will have a considerably improved and more comprehensive base of knowledge when planning for a car adaptation. If some of the measured values are low, this doesn’t necessarily mean the individual is unfit as a driver. The ability to drive is always a matter of finding other ways to do the same thing The DTS is not a simulator or a ”PlayStation”. The DTS is designed as a tool to help the therapist, or the person making the prescription, to perform a qualified test of a person’s abilities as a driver, concerning strength, flexibility, behaviour and reaction time. By using the DTS you can evaluate the ability of the driver, founded on facts, and the person being tested can feel reassured that the tests are objectively conducted. • The DTS is delivered with software and user instructions. •The computer and the screen are not included. • The software of the DTS is easy to use, pedagogically visualised and provides possibility for individual settings. • The DTS also gives you the ability to simulate a specific car model. The DTS software produces a PDF test report for each tested individual. The test report can be used as a matrix for a car adaptation, since all the necessary values are at hand for creating the best possible driver environment. It can sometimes be difficult to decide if the individual is fit enough as a driver. The DTS test report is not only a support for the decision itself, but also a help when informing an individual about a negative outcome.
