Statistical Discriminant Analysis on the Driving Ability of the Brain-injured

  • Published : 2005.02.28


Brain injured patients who had the driver's license before the injury of the brain were tested with the newly developed tool CPAD by Hangyang Medical School and the National Rehabilitation Center. The CPAD contains many variables to measure the ability of driving. Also for each patient the American standard CBDI score was measured and the result was compared with the CPAD results. Of interest is to classify the patients as pass, border, fail group after the CPAD test. To derive the discriminant functions with the group information based on CBDI, parametric/nonparametric and multivariate/univariate discriminant analysis was performed and discussed.
