To investigate the actual driving state of the brain injured who had received driver training program.
We conducted a follow up survey with 64 brain injured who had received driver training program at the National Rehabilitation Center. 29 subjects were first attempting to obtain a license (First obtaining group) while 35 subjects were trying to re-obtain a license after being handicapped (Re-obtaining group). The contents of the survey were compared between first obtaining group and re-obtaining group, and between hemiplegic side.
41 subjects obtained license in regard to the total 64 subjects in which 39% of theses were actually driving.Licensed rate was 55% for first obtaining group and 71% for re-obtaining group. Driving rate was 56% for first obtaining group and 28% for re-obtaining group. Comparing to hemiplegic side, left hemiplegics (54%) showed a tendency to have higher rate of accident than right hemiplegics (0%) without statistical significance.
Licensed rate of the brain injured was 64%, and driving rate and accident rate were 39% and 38%, respectively. Left hemiplegics, especially, had a higher rate of accident than right hemiplegics. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2004; 28: 220-225)
