Adaptive Equipment



Assess Your Adaptive Equipment Needs

There’s a wide range of modifications that can be made to a Ford vehicle based on your individual needs. Finding the options that work for you is easier than you might think.

Meet With the Experts

There are a few ways to make an informed choice about the modifications you need. The most comprehensive is a visit to a Driver Assessment Center.

These facilities employ driver rehabilitation educators that are, in most cases, occupational therapists who can evaluate your needs and help teach you how to drive a vehicle with adaptive equipment.

Each evaluation is led by a Driver Rehabilitation Specialist, who evaluates for physical and cognitive skills. They take the driver’s immediate, as well as future needs into account, allowing the adaptive equipment to grow and change over the years, depending on the driver’s conditions.
