OBJECTIVE The present study was designed to perform theory-driven empirical work that might contribute to a better understanding of computer-assisted training effects adopting theoretically different memory retraining strategies for people who had amnesia as a result of a brain injury. RESEARCH DESIGN A pre-test and post-test control group(More)
BACKGROUND People with traumatic brain injury (TBI) must often deal with cognitive problems, including social problem-solving. The study reported herein evaluated the effectiveness of a newly developed pictorial-based analogical problem-solving skills training programme.

AIM To evaluate the effectiveness of a computerized, errorless learning-based memory rehabilitation program for Chinese patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). METHODS This study adopted a pre- and post-test quasi-experimental design. A total of 37 patients with TBI were randomly assigned to a Computer-Assisted Memory Training Group (CAMG), a(More)
Expert systems (ES), which are a branch of artificial intelligence, has been widely used in different applications, including medical consultation and more recently in rehabilitation for assessment and intervention. The development and validation of an expert system for memory rehabilitation (ES-MR) is reported here. Through a web-based platform, ES-MR can(More)
The rationale, procedures and results of pilot study of the VR system in training street survival skills of people with stroke were presented and discussed. The following main study was also refined from the outcomes to make it more feasible and potentially beneficial to the patients.
PRIMARY OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of different trainer-trainee interaction patterns on the self-efficacy outcomes of trainees with brain injury. RESEARCH DESIGN A pre-test and post-test randomized clinical trial design. METHODS AND PROCEDURES One hundred and three subjects with brain injury were recruited and 83 subjects participated in(More)

A study was performed to investigate the relationship of scores on self-concept and social desirability of 214 Hong Kong Chinese adults with physical disabilities. No significant correlations were found between self-concept and social desirability; however, their social desirability scores were significantly related to their age, education, and occupational(More)
METHOD The Adult Source of Self-Esteem Inventory (ASSEI) (A.C. Elovson and J.S. Fleming, unpublished manuscript. California: California State University, 1989), open-ended questions on self-evaluation, and interviewing were adopted as the major procedures for identifying the sources and basis of the self-concepts of people with mental illness.
