Abstract [en]

The majority of people suffering from a stroke get some kind of cognitive impairments as a result. Those cognitive impairments may affect the persons driving ability, making an exam to this end necessary before they resume driving. There are however no guidelines for how this examination should be performed. The lack of self-perception about their individual abilities can make the detection even harder. This work describes the process of developing a prototype of a system that can be used at health care facilities in order to make a more informed decision upon the driving ability of stroke patients. In addition, the system shall act as a communication tool helping the health care personnel to explain the results to the patients in order to raise awareness of their abilities. A user-centered design method is used to develop this system and ensure that the prototype meets the patients’ as well as the health care personnel’s needs. The result is a desktop application where the patient steers a car with the use of an external driving wheel while reacting to stimuli along the road. After the test is completed, the result is visualized in a PDF and can be used as an aiding tool in decision making and communication.
