Purpose : The purpose of this study is to investigate the impact on the ability to walk, balance after side walking training of hemiplegic patients caused by stroke. Method : The subjects were training before stroke onset whether more than one year elapsed 15 patients with chronic stroke patients, and Berg balance scale(BBS) and Timed up and go test(TUG), Functional reaching test(FRT), 20m walking time 200m walking time were measured and recorded. Training period, a total of three weeks, and training frequency circuit training times 10 minutes per training, 5-minute break, the 10-minute training total 25-minute training was conducted. Gait line of 3m to be based on the patient's side walking, and the risk of falling compared to the presence of the experimenter trained under was carried out. Result : 1. TUG, 2. 20m walking time, 3. 200m walking time 4. FRT, 5. All showed significant improvement in BBS. Judging from the results, the side walking training conducted three weeks due to chronic stroke hemiplegic patient's ability to balance and showed a positive effect on the improvement of walking ability. Conclusion : Accordingly, it was more effective to train hemiplegic patients with chronic stroke on side walking.

Purpose : The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of music intervention upon lighting on stress. Method : The participants 60 college students, were divided three groups. Two groups were apply each music and bright lighting(bright lighting groups) and music and dark lighting(dark lighting groups) during 13minutes at Snozelen and the other group was control group. Each groups were assessed stress resistance, activity of parasympathetic nerve, activity of sympathetic nerve, balance of ANS, physical arousal by EKG of CANS 3000, at before and after other each intervention. The analyses were performed using version of SPSS 17. Result : The change rate of bright lighting group was showed statistically significant decrease in stress resistance compared to control group. And the change rate of dark lighting group was showed statistically significant decrease in resistance stress, activity of parasympathetic nerve, and balance of ANS compared to control group and statistically significant increase in stress resistance and activity of parasympathetic nerve compared to bright lighting group. Conclusion : The results of this study indicate that music intervention on dark lighting is more effective on decrease of stress than application of bright lighting and general lighting.

DOI : 10.15268/ksim.2013.1.1.023
Purpose : This study was to investigate effects of pilates and taping on flexibility and muscular strength of low back. Methods : A total of 29 healthy over 20 years old college students(men = 6, women = 23) who were participated in this. We selected randomly for lo people of pilates, taping, and 9 people of control group. For the past six weeks, pilates worked out twice aweek for 40 minuates and taping stuck once a week for 24 hours and then we compared before and after muscle strength and flexibility of low back. Results : 1. The sesult compared of flexibility of low back have found no significant diffrences between pilates and taping groups.(P>.05) 2. The result compared of experimental groups have found significant diffrences between before and after flexibility of low back.(P<.05) 3. The result compared of muscle strength of low back have found no significant diffrences between pilates and taping groups.(P>.05) 4. The result compared of experimental groups have found significant diffrences between before and after muscle strength of low back.(P<.05) Conclusion : In conclusion there were not differences between pilates and taping on muscle strength and flexibility of low back. Those were increased in comparison with control group.

DOI : 10.15268/ksim.2013.1.1.033
Purpose : The study was designed to identify the change of body alignment according to surface during walking with backpack. Methods : Healthy twenty people(10 men & 10 women) participated in this study. The exclusion criteria were orthopedic and neurologic disease. Initial alignment measurements were performed. Results were evaluated by angle and range from earlobe to acromion, acromion to malleolus and earlobe to malleolus in the GPS system. Results : On the hard surface, the distance and angle from malleolus to earlobe increased after walking with backpack which is 20 % of weight(p<.05). In addition the distance from malleolus to acromion and the angle from earlobe to acromion increased(p<.05). On the soft surface, on the other hand, the distance and angle from malleolus to earlobe decreased after walking with backpack which is 20 % of weight(p<.05). There was no relationship between the change of the surface and the body's alignment(p>.05). Conclusion : Consequently, the body alignment was changed by backpack which is 20 % of weight, but body alignment wasn't changed by the surface. So more study need to be surveyed regard of this.

DOI : 10.15268/ksim.2013.1.1.045
Purpose : This study was designed to investigate the satisfaction of clinical practice for in the occupational therapy department and to provide the basic materials for improvement the curriculum of clinical practice. Method : This research period was from May 10. 2012 to May 31. 2012. And the subject of was were belonging to occupational therapy department who finished clinical practice. Results : The research result is as following. As for the satisfaction of the clinical practice, the average point was 3.16 for 5, which was regular satisfaction. The satisfaction of clinical practice content point was 3.47 for 5. In detail, the item of 'clinical practice made us a new experience in relation to curriculum at college' scored 4.01, the highest. By contrast, the internal conflict during the clinical practice scored 2.63. In detail, the answer "I didn't feel sorry for failing this training" scored 2.4, which scored lowest. Conclusions : As the result of this research, students have feel the clinical training is the significant process for being a occupational therapist, and they also have satisfy what they experienced. And we can also tell that some of them have trouble because of the gap between the theory and clinical practice. To improve these problems, students should have confidences by preparing their clinical practice and external voluntary. Furthermore, for better clinical practice, we hope that the study on preparations for clinical practice will continue.

Purpose : The purpose of this study is to evaluate the stability and balance of the body, mobility complex exercise group and a student group for FMS tests to compare the differences between the two groups to identify its purpose. Method : The subjects of this study FMS measuring D University Physical Therapy, a student enrolled patients (7:7), and 7 patients total of 14 patients was conducted, compound exercise group weekly stretching 10 minutes, the 24 members who have run a complex exercise, 10 minutes of cool down stretching, 20-minute aerobic exercise were included in the study. Result : The results of this study, according to 1) Deep squat, Inline lunge, Trunk Stability Push-up there was significant difference(p<0.05), compound exercise group came out significantly higher. 2) Hurdle Step, Shoulder Mobility Reaching, Active Straight-leg Raise, Rotary stability in measured target these women flexibility because the test items that did not show a significant difference(p>0.05), the two groups averaged compared to the other items were higher. Complex exercise group, a statistically significant difference was overall average. Conclusion : FMS can not be resolved because of a compensatory mechanism to identify disparities and unbalanced movement patterns can help. Therefore, if the FMS and other tests conducted by splicing, will be utilized more profitably, and you will be able to suggest ways that can have a positive impact injury prevention is added to the side to expand the scope of the physical therapist.

Method : This research participated in 20 patients four weeks from June 11, 2012 June 8 il experiment was carried out. Experimental group conducted physical therapy(n=10) and control group(n=10) was not conducted Results : A comparative analysis of experimental group and the control group in the levels of depression (BDI) was not significantly different. A comparative analysis of experimental group and the control group in the VAS was not significantly different. ROM(flexion, extension, abduction, and internal rotation) was significantly increased in the experimental group, whereas external rotation significantly did not increased. Conclusion : ROM of external rotation between the experimental and control groups, except for the change showed a statistically significant, the above findings, the level of pain and depression, there were no statistically significant differences.
