I am a c4 quad and have been in a chair for almost 10 years. Last week I officially got my adaptive car delivered to my house so I can start driving. It is so amazing and was completely paid for by department of rehab. For those of you on here that drive with a Scott's System how do you like it? Any tips or tricks for me. My hand controls are very sensitive so I am trying to get used to it, but I know that will change with practice. Does anyone drive and struggle with spasms? I have pretty crazy spasms sometimes and I am worried of spasming while I am driving.
