Reply To: Do you drive a car with the GBS?

My hubby has CIDP. He was released from rehab August 2011 on crutches. I work full time and was driving him it ivig and PT appointments. In October 2011 we made the decision to get hand controls. His arms had recovered quite well, but the legs were way too weak to respond quickly to braking.

Best decision we made. Worth every penny. When I drove his car home with the controls he was out in the driveway like a 16 year old who had just gotten his license.

We did have a trainer come to our house to give him some lessons. Hand controls made me feel more comfortable about his driving.

Hope this helps.
