Abstract

   フラワーアレンジメント作業による認知リハビリテーションを施行した結果, 机上検査における左半側空間無視症状が長期改善した1 例を報告する。本症例は介入前までに行った計7 回の線分抹消試験において左側2 列の刺激をすべて見落としていたが, 介入後の検査では左側2 列を含むすべての線分を認識することができた。Rey 複雑図形においても正確性の高い模写図を用紙の中央に描いた。訓練効果は介入 5 ヵ月後のフォローアップ検査でも保たれていた。本例においてフラワーアレンジメントによる認知リハビリテーションは半側空間無視症状の長期改善に一定の効果を示した。

   We reported the effects of a structured floral arrangement(SFA)rehabilitation program in a chronic phase case with left─side spatial neglect. The SFA was developed as a training program for cognitive ability, especially visuospatial recognition. In the SFA program, the order sequence for placing each of the natural materials was predetermined. The case was required to identify where and when to place each material in order to complete a symmetrical floral arrangement. Before rehabilitation intervention, the case neglected two vertical rows of stimuli on the left side in the line cancellation test of the Behavioral Inattention Test(BIT); however, he could recognize all lines, including left-side stimuli, after SFA intervention. The score on the Rey-Osterrieth Complex Figure test also improved after the intervention. The case was able to copy quite accurately the complex figure in the center of a paper. The signs of left-side spatial neglect had nearly disappeared in the two tests after intervention. These effects were maintained 5 months after intervention. Our results showed that on SFA program may positively stimulate visuospatial ability and improve unilateral spatial neglect for a long time in chronic cases.
