Introduction: Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most major causes of disability, especially cognitive problems and mortality worldwide. The present study aims to investigate the effect of cognitive rehabilitation for improving cognitive function with RehaCom software in patients with traumatic brain injury.
Methods: The sample of the present study consisted of 40 patients with TBI selected using purposive sampling and randomly assigned in experimental and control groups (n=20). The results were analyzed using multivariable analysis of covariance (MANCOVA). Research tools included RehaCom cognitive rehabilitation software and continuous performance test (CPT-II). The rehabilitation software was given to the experimental group for eight weeks and three sessions per week for 30 minutes to perform the intervention.
Results: The results showed that cognitive rehabilitation training with RehaCom software significantly improved divided attention (p <0.01) and continuous attention (p <0.05) in the experimental group.
Conclusion: The results of this study showed that cognitive rehabilitation with RehaCom software improves the attention of patients with traumatic brain injury and can be used as a complementary treatment method.
