SALIENT CHARACTERISTICS The Kinesiotherapy Driver Rehabilitation Program not only serves the Veterans of the Tibor Rubin VA Medical Center, but also provides driver rehabilitation to other VA s in the region (VA Loma Linda Healthcare System and VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System) that do not have this service. Veterans with varied functional mobility and limitations (spinal cord injury, amputation, traumatic brain injury and other) cannot be accommodated with a single type of vehicle arrangement. In addition, the Kinesiotherapy Driver Rehabilitation Program at the Tibor Rubin VA Medical Center serves as one of two VA training sites in the nation providing annual training to VA clinicians seeking to become driver rehab specialists.

In selecting a vehicle to meet the needs for our clinic, the following mini van conversions were compared: Chrysler Pacifica, Dodge Grand Caravan, Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna. The following combinations of specs and features highlight the reasons for our vehicle selection and we feel will allow the best opportunity for our clinicians to evaluate our Veteran while meeting the needs for accessibility and standards for safety.
