Abstract

In order to obtain the information of disease classification of rehabilitation patients, we conducted disease recording at eight different hospitals in north and east parts of Taiwan for one year. Musculoskeletal disorder was the most common disease which accounts for more than half of total patients (51%) and it was also the most common disease in outpatients, whereas cerebral vascular disease was the most common disease in inpatients.Traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, cardiac disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease were also common in inpatients. In our study, cancer accounts for only 1% of total patients. As regards to the disease classification in different age group, degenerative diseases, such as cervical and lumbar spondylosis, spine compression fracture and femoral neck fracture were common in age group above 45, whereas speech disorder and cerebral palsy were the most common disease in age group below 15.
