    Jemo Park | Kim Hee Dong | Hwa Shik Jung and 10other persons | 2018, 26(1) | pp.1~13 | number of Cited : 1
    Objective: There has been observed that the degree of functional recovery is higher than non-dominant hand if the dominant hand paralyzed after a stroke. In Korean research context, there has not been enough research conducted on this issue. This study has therefore tried to explore the changes in functional recovery due to dominant hand paralysis by using a retrospective cohort survey to provide information to an occupational therapy intervention strategy. Methods: After recruiting primary subjects( n =205) from five medical institutions, we investigated subjects' general characteristics and stroke-related characteristics such as applied evaluation tools. Subjects who have admitted from onset to initial evaluation within 6 months were excluded. Information about the assessment records were collected from the secondary subjects( n =122). Six evaluation tools(Modified Barthel Index, Maunual Function Test, Hand Strength Test, Nine-Hole Pegboard Test, Functional Independence Measure, Box and Block Test) were selected through the frequency analysis for the assessment tool applied to the secondary subjects. Results: The assessment results of HST, NHP and BBT( p <.001) along with assessment period in MBI( p <.05) depending on the existence of dominant hand paralysis showed statistical difference. However, no interaction effect between the existence of dominant hand paralysis and assessment period. The changes on the assessment value of HST and BBT showed that the paralyzed dominant hand group was higher and statistically significant( p <.05) than the non-dominant hand group. Conclusion: We hope that the results of this study could be applied to various occupational therapy intervention strategies for hemiplegic patients due to stroke in the future.

    Han sang woo | Jaeshin Lee | kim su kyoung and 3other persons | 2018, 26(1) | pp.15~29 | number of Cited : 6
    Objective: The purpose of this study is to standardize a Korean Drivers 65 plus by evaluating its reliability and validity. Methods: After completing the final translation through verification, to verify the tool’s reliability and validity, 218 senior drivers, aged 65 plus, were assessed through translated versions of Drivers 65 plus, K-DBQ and MoCA-K. Results: The translated version was completed after verification of translation and reverse translation, participant comprehensibility, and suitability; no questions were deleted or added. In reliability testing of the translated version of Drivers 65 plus, the internal reliability of the items was Cronbach’s α=0.575, and test-retest reliability was .95 by ICC. In the confirmatory factor analysis to verify construct validity, the model fit indices were as follows: NC=2.954, CFI=.806, TLI=.736, NFI=.742 and RMSEA=.095. K-Drivers 65 plus and K-DBQ had a significant positive correlation( r =.470, p <.01) while there was a significant negative correlation with MoCA-K( r =-.495, p <.01). When we tested the usefulness of the K-Drivers 65 plus to assess driving suitability in senior drivers, the AUC (.726) was confirmed to have normal accuracy in selecting suitability. K-Driver 65 plus distinguished those with a total score of 31 or more as Risk drivers and those with scores of less than 31 as Safe drivers. Conclusion: Although K-Drivers 65 did not show high reliability and validity in this study, it was proven to be an adequate self-assessment tool for two reasons: 1) it can be easily provided to a large number of elderly drivers and 2) it is possible to prevent accidents by predicting driving suitability based on the results.

    Objective: The purpose of study was to verify the clinical effect of a attention training with eye movement program(called EYAS) for recovering the attention and cognition in brain injury. Methods: For this purpose, 7 stroke and TBI with cognitive disabilities participated in a clinical experiment to verify the effect of attention training with eye movement program. The intervention tool was the eye tracking-linkaged attention training system(EYAS) which is computer–based cognitive rehabilitation program. All participant were evaluated with four standardized assessment tools(MMSE-K, MVPT, CNT) before, middle, after the planned intervention sessions. Cognitive interventions were intensively carried out for 16weeks, half an hour per session, 3 times a week. Results: The results were as follows. Three intervention periods for MVPT and CNT showed differences in cognitive abilities after the interventions as expected. The attention, response speed, memory, visual perception were improved significantly compared to before intervention. The cognition(MMSE-K, MVPT, CNT) scores after EYAS interventions were higher than before it's interventions. Conclusion: These results indicate that the attention training with eye movement program have effects on improving cognitive abilities(memory, visual perception) and response speed in brain injury patients. Further studies are needed to verify the effect on various group and more participants (ex, child).

    Hwang, Do-Yeon | Hwa Shik Jung | Jemo Park and 3other persons | 2018, 26(1) | pp.45~57 | number of Cited : 3
    Objective: This study was conducted to survey the awareness of Occupational Therapy of the general public and suggest the improvement plan. Methods: A randomly selected 2,980 subjects from general public in Gwangju and Jeonnam province who agreed to a survey were participated. If the subjects had heard or known about OT, then they were guided to continue to the next questions. However if they haven't, the surveyor checked the questionnaire and finished the survey. The questionnaire consisted of four questions for OT awareness and other four questions for OT necessity. The data analysis were carried out for 2,967 subjects by excluding 13 respondents who responded poorly to the questions. Results: Of the 2,967 subjects, 252(8.5%) participants said that they had heard or known of OT. Being aware of OT was statistically significant in terms of age and occupation( p <.001) especially in their 20s(28.6%) and student group(41.7%). Regarding the necessity of OT, 215(85.3%) participants responded that OT is needed for our lives and an average of 3.73±75 out of 5 point scale was evaluated on the prospects for future OT. Conclusion: The current OT field is increasingly expanding as compared to the past. However, it has still relatively low recognition yet. Therefore, it is hoped that the results of this research will be useful as a basis for the establishment of policies for improving OT awareness.
