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)
PRIMARY OBJECTIVE The present study reports the results of 103 persons with acquired brain injury who were randomly assigned to one of three 20-session analogy problem-solving skill training groups, namely: online training (through computer video conferencing with interactive software); computer-assisted training (through interactive patient-directed(More)
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)
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)
People with brain injuries must often deal with cognitive problems, including social problem solving. The present study evaluated the effectiveness of a 20-session, online, interactive, skill-training programme on the solving of problems using analogies. It was hypothesized that the programme could help people with brain injuries learn better(More)
Artificial neural networks (ANN) have been applied to assist in clinical decision-making and prediction. While we consider possible effective treatments for patients with osteoarthritic knee such as Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS), exercise, and TENS with exercise respectively, we have to select a treatment protocol for patients such that(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. It is hypothesized that the programme can help people with TBI to learn better(More)
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the main causes of long-term disability, and its rehabilitation is a challenge to the healthcare team. Tele-rehabilitation, through using advancements in networking and tailor-made software, has been developed and applied to the cognitive rehabilitation of persons with brain injury in the present study. Tele-cognitive(More)
In the present study, the authors evaluated the self-concept levels of Hong Kong Chinese adults with visible and not visible physical disabilities. Fifty-five Hong Kong Chinese (22 men and 33 women) aged 18 to 55 (M = 39.50, SD = 10.21) participated-20 without physical disabilities (control group), 20 with visible physical disabilities, and 15 with physical(More)
