To investigate the effect of computer-based cognitive rehabilitation on unilateral spatial neglect in stroke patients.
Twenty four stroke patients (7 men, 17 women) who had unilateral spatial neglect were recruited. Patients were randomly assigned to either case or control group. Case group received both classical neglect stimulation therapy (attention and compensation training) and computer-based cognitive rehabilitation, but control group received only classical neglect stimulation therapy. The effect of therapy was assessed with star cancellation test, line bisection test, MVPT (motor-free visual perception test), and MBI (modified Barthel index).
Four weeks after the therapy, both group showed significant improvement in star cancellation test, line bisection test, MVPT, and MBI. But there was no statistically significant difference between control and case group with each evaluation tool after 4 weeks treatment (p>0.05).
Computer-based cognitive rehabilitation has no additional benefit to the treatment of hemi-spatial neglect in stroke patients. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2008; 32: 15-19)
