Power rehabilitation is a new method of rehabilitation restoring the physical and psychological activity that has been lowered due to aging and organic obstacles and aiming at improving independence and returning to a high quality of life (QOL).
First of all, a number of cases were delivered such as present state about aging in Japan and the way of "self-support nursing care", furthermore its necessity and reason, present attention and acceleration in the future.
Some examples were introduced such as a man who was unable to walk was refusing to be assisted by nursing care, but after the cooperation of others around, he was able to attend his daughter's wedding ceremony and be able to walk with the virgin road together, the function of bedridden patient improved gradually and recovered until it was able to play round with a friend at the golf course.
