Older driver estimates of driving exposure compared to in-vehicle data in the Candrive II study
(Taylor and Francis, 2015-01)
OBJECTIVE: Most studies on older adults' driving practices have relied on self-reported information. With technological advances it is now possible to objectively measure the everyday driving of older adults in their own ...
The use of a naturalistic driving route for characterizing older drivers
(Canadian Multidisciplinary Road Safety Conference, 2012)
Although the vast majority of older drivers are safe, there are some older drivers who are at risk of crashes due to health-related changes in functional status. For licensing agencies worldwide it is a challenge to ...
An Evaluation of the Roadwise Review: A Mixed Methods Approach

Seasonal and Weather Effects on Older Adults’ Driving Trip Distances
(Canadian Journal on Aging, 2016-06)
The purpose of this study was to determine if season or weather affected the objectively measured trip distances of older drivers (≥ 70 years n=279) at seven Canadian sites. During winter, for all trips taken, trip distance ...
The Effect of Fuel Prices on the Driving Patterns of Older Adults
(Transportation Research Part F: Psychology and Behaviour, 2018)
Examining environmental factors that influence older adults’ driving patterns has important implications for understanding factors that can lead to self-regulation and cessation. The current study explored the effect of ...
Programs for improving the safety of older drivers

Velocity during Strength and Power Training of the Ankle Plantar and Dorsiflexor Muscles in Older Patients Attending Day Hospital Rehabilitation
Power training has been proposed as a more effective type of resistance training for older adults for functional performance. It is not yet known whether older adults respond appropriately to instructions for power versus ...
Citizen science applied to building healthier community environments: advancing the field through shared construct and measurement development
Abstract Background Physical inactivity across the lifespan remains a public health issue for many developed countries. Inactivity has contributed considerably to the pervasiveness ...
Naturalistic Driving Patterns of Older Adults Before and After Cataract Surgery
(Canadian Journal of Ophthalmology, 2018-10)
Background. Cataract surgery can have many benefits for older adults, including enabling continued driving. However, it is not known how objectively measured driving patterns change after cataract surgery. Objective. The ...
