Understanding the experiences of people using adaptive driving equipment

The purpose of this study is to describe the current driving patterns of people who use adaptive driving equipment. Also, this study hopes to identify what supports drivers used to learn how to drive and acquire their adaptive driving equipment. Lastly, this study will explore drivers’ experiences using their equipment.

The participant will fill out a 10-15 minute self-administered survey. Participants have the option to complete the survey online or get a hard copy mail to them. The hard copy of the survey will contain a self-addressed returned envelope and will have to be returned through the Canada Post office.
