To qualify for one (whether it's out of pocket or insurance) you have to undergo assessment by doctor and actual training in a unit. This is not like showing you how a power chair works while PT observes, more like drivers education. A certain amount of trunk control (Dr assessed), ability to bend knees (not applicable to amputees), and you must show that you can operate safely. Think, there are healthy people that can't drive a car safely so some SCI folks my fail the driver training & test.

I have read this is a marketing ploy by Toyota R&D, I hope not. We'll see this spring when they are supposed to be released.
