If you have suffered paralysis as the result of a spinal cord injury (SCI), you may be struggling with feeling trapped and helpless. Having such a sudden loss of function and independence can be terrifying, and it can take a long time to adjust to the new reality. Some find that they want to push themselves to their new limits, whereas others feel defeated. They may see something like driving as a part of their old life that they must give up. Just because you are paraplegic or quadriplegic, doesn’t necessarily mean you need to surrender driving. Thousands of people with SCIs have been able to relearn how to drive with the help of adaptive equipment and take back some of their freedom.
