Caregivers and stroke survivors showed moderate KDSS overall scores.
Stroke survivors who had received and read written materials given to them (n = 10) had higher scores on the KDSS (M = 15.
The LandCruiser is the second Toyota sport utility vehicle to feature the KDSS
Among the 11,909 households interviewed by the KDSS
in 2004, 12 percent reported non-Thai ethnicity; 8 percent of households were headed by non-Thais born outside of Thailand (first generation migrants); and 5 percent were headed by non-Thais born in Thailand (second or third generation migrants).
In off-road driving situations, KDSS
allows the wheels on each axle to move with a larger degree of side-to-side independence, helping to minimize any tendency for wheel lift.
Employing a simple hydraulic control system acting on both front and rear stabilizer bars, KDSS reduces the degree of roll stiffness provided by each of the bars in response to changing road conditions and driver inputs.
Large stabilizer bars would normally mean a stiff ride over single-wheel bumps, but with KDSS, the energy is distributed between front and rear so that ride comfort is not disturbed.
The variable terrain typical of most off-road situations highlights the benefits of KDSS.
Proven in the World Rally Championship, the innovative KDSS is a global first for production vehicles.
KDSS varies the degree of roll stiffness provided by each of the stabilizer bars in response to changing road conditions and driver inputs, but rather than increasing roll stiffness, the system reduces it as conditions require.
The constantly changing and variable terrain that's typical of most off- road situations highlights the benefits of KDSS.
