I am a student in biomedical engineering at the University of Southern California and we are doing a design project for my Rehabilitation Engineering class. I was trying to gather information about different adaptations the automotive industry has for paraplegics, or similarly handicapped individuals. I know that people can have hand controls installed in their vehicle, but as for adaptations to the interior, what is available? ALso, where would I be able to start with a literature search, I tried Pub Med to search medical journals, but I didn't find anything in English. I would appreciate if anybody could help me. Thanks in advance!
