The rehabilitation service for the outpatients under the nursing-care insurance seems to keep up their physical function due to mainly servicing the chronic case patients. The result of national statistics shows a heavy burden being placed on the nursing care degree for that service. The rehabilitation facilities which introduced the Takizawa program into the basic individual rehabilitation programs for the neuromuscular re-educating and basic motion training have shown improvement of physical function and abilities of daily living. The 18 outpatients' medical records on the nursing care degree, independence degree and rehabilitation process from their beginning to March 2010 were examined and summarized following the national records summary. The functional brain evaluation by the near-infrared optical topography device (fNIRS) was enforced in order to research the mechanism of the improvement.
