Efficacy of RehaCom cognitive rehabilitation software in activities of daily living, attention and response control in chronic stroke patients
Background: Our world is unfortunately facing a huge number of stroke. Attention, response control and activities of daily living (ADL) are important cognitive functions affected by stroke. In line with this explanation, we aimed to investigate the effect of RehaCom rehabilitation software on ADL, attention and response control in chronic stroke patients with damage to middle and anterior cerebral arteries.
Method: For selecting participants, among chronic stroke patients who referred to our special rehabilitation clinic for patients with stroke, fifty patients selected. Participants were assigned to control (n = 25) and experimental (n = 25) groups. The experimental group was compared with the control group before and after using RehaCom (ten 45-min sessions in five weeks).
Results: There is a significant enhancement in ADL, attention and response control scores in the experimental group compared with the control group. In fact, treatment with RehaCom significantly improved the score of all studied variables in chronic stroke patients.
Conclusions: In conclusion, RehaCom cognitive rehabilitation software has improvement effect on ADL, attention and response control in patients with chronic stroke. Our study reveals a new information about the efficacy of computerized training in the rehabilitation of stroke patients.

Effect of RehaCom cognitive rehabilitation software on working memory and processing speed in chronic ischemic stroke patients
Stroke survivors need assistance to overcome cognitive impairments. Working memory (WM) and processing speed (PS) as two critical cognitive functions are disrupted by stroke. The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of RehaCom rehabilitation software on WM and PS in participants with chronic ischemic stroke with hemiplegia (right/left side). Participants were selected among stroke patients who were referred to our special rehabilitation clinic. Fifty participants were assigned to control (n = 25) and experimental (n = 25) groups. The results of the experimental group were compared with the control group before and after the treatment with RehaCom (ten 45-min sessions across five weeks, two sessions per week). The results showed a significant improvement in WM and PS in the experimental group in comparison with the control group after a 5-week training with RehaCom. In conclusion, our findings indicate that treatment with RehaCom software improves WM and PS in chronic ischemic stroke participants with hemiplegia. The exact mechanism of RehaCom is largely unknown and further studies are needed, but its effects on the function of brain regions involved in modulating cognitive functions such as the prefrontal cortex, cingulate cortex, and parietal cortex may be mechanisms of interest.
