스노젤렌과 전산화 인지재활 프로그램(Rehacom)이 인지기능 향상에 미치는 영향
Purpose : This study aims to investigate the effect of the Snoezelen and Rehacom programs on improvement of attention and memory, and the effect of the Snoezelen program on stress reduction. Method : This study was targeted at 11 subjects in the Snoezelen experimental group, 11 subjects in the Rehacom group and 11 subjects in the non-experimental group. As the initial evaluation, all the subjects took electroencephalography. Then, the Snoezelen group and Rehacom group did Snoezelen training and
... ezelen training and Rehacom training, respectively total 12 times(for 20 minutes twice per week for six weeks), but no training was applied to the control group. Three weeks after the training, the interim was carried out, and four weeks after the training, the final evaluation was carried out. Results : Subjects' attention increased to 58.15±4.96 from 43.75±4.69 during the Snoezelen training, and increased to 49.85±1.91 from 43.28±2.71 during the Rehacom training, which means the Snoezelen training was more effective in improving attention(P<0.05). Subjects' memory increased to 56.14±1.26 from 43.19±3.46 during the Snoezelen training, and increased to 50.94±4.0 from 43.07±2.58 during the Rehacom training. This also implies that the Snoezelen training was more effective in improving memory(P<0.05). Conclusion : Though both of the Snoezelen training and Rehacom training improved attention and memory, the Snoezelen program was more effective, and it also influenced stress resistance and physical arousal.
