Why is a driving app important in Huntington’s Disease?

We want to investigate a new app which we hope will assist both patients and health professionals to better understand how someone’s driving is going. On-road driving assessments can be quite expensive, and so we are hoping to improve a specially designed iPad app that could save people from going for an expensive driving assessment before they need to.

How am I investigating driving in HD?

I am looking at ways to improve a specially designed iPad app so that it is accurate in determining driving ability for people with Huntington’s disease.

What will we learn from this research?

Understanding ways that the app can be improved will assist both patients and health professionals to accurately use the app to determine how someone’s driving is going and reduce the need for an on-road assessment.
