Binghamton, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/11/2006 -- Doron Precision Systems, Inc. announced today the delivery and installation of a one-place L-350R/A driving simulator to the Department of Occupational Therapy in the School of Allied Health Sciences at the Medical College Of Georgia in Augusta, Georgia.
“Doron’s 350R/A system has been an invaluable tool for driver rehabilitation and assessment treatment. It is also a part of our occupational therapy training curriculum” remarked Dr. Ricky Joseph, Associate Chair, Department of Occupational Therapy, Medical College of Georgia.
Patients with head trauma, strokes, brain damage and other impediments will be functionally assessed and rehabilitated at the faculty practice clinic. The department also finds the L350R/A to be an excellent tool for evaluating geriatric patients. It finds applicability in the university’s driving (rehabilitation) research projects and in the training of occupational therapy students.
The L350R/A fosters situational awareness training to improve perceptual/ cognitive skills, scanning techniques, including functional instruments and mirror usage, critical cue recognition and decision making skills. Driver assessment is perfected by measurement, display and recording of reaction and threat recognition skills and identification of unsafe driving practices. The system package also includes a comprehensive program guide, with a collection of sample tests and diagnostic reports, developed in close collaboration with leading hospitals and rehabilitation centers. Doron’s L350R/A is thus the simulator of choice for driver rehabilitation and assessment.
