IC32: An Introduction to Hybrid Alternative Driving Systems

IC32 Handouts

Alternative driving systems are often prescribed for users with SCI, ALS, and MS. Unfortunately, these systems frequently fail to provide the types of outcomes we want with these populations. It's not the technology that's the problem, it's how we implement it.

Hybrid Alternative Driving Systems (HADS) combine characteristics of more than one system to assign key functions to other points of control. HADS can be effective when a user lacks sufficient head control, oral motor function, or cognition to use any one system. This presentation will demonstrate how HADS can be a very practical way to achieve successful outcomes with some of our most challenging cases.

Faculty:

Steven J. Mitchell, OTR/L, ATP
Cleveland VA Medical Center SCI/D
Cleveland, Ohio
United States

Steve Mitchell, OTR/L, ATP is an occupational therapist who has provided custom mobility equipment to veterans with spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, and ALS through the SCI/D Service at the Cleveland VA Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio. Today, he will demonstrate how Hybrid Alternative Driving Systems can provide better complex rehab outcomes. Hybrid Alernative Driving Systems combine characteristics of more than one system to assign key functions to other points of control.
