Consumer Resources
 

Drive Focus is an innovative app for iPad and Android tablets that enables users to practice visual and cognitive skills for driving. While watching videos of real roadway scenes filmed from the driver's point of view, the user clicks on critical information such as pedestrians, traffic lights, and brake lights. Users are scored on their ability to identify, prioritize and react to this critical information. Features such as the ability to slow down the video or prompts to look for critical information support users at different levels. 

 

Consider Drive Focus for your beginner drivers and clients with Autism, stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis.  Every action a driver makes begins with identifying critical information on the roadway. If a driver has deficits in visual search skills all other actions are compromised.    

 

New Version for Android Tablets

The newly released Android version has clickable practice drives that guide the user tothe critical items that need to be noticed and clicked. Users can playback specific sections of the video to see any critical items they miss.

 

New User Analytics

Drive Focus Analytics gives driving schools and rehabilitation practitioners an overview of all of their Android users from their web browser. This allows you to see where clients may be having problems, and tailor your training to their needs. Android users can share their scores with their (C)DRS, driving school instructor, or therapist.
