Effects of Theraband Exercise Programs on Strength, Balance and Proprioception in Elderly
Lee, Dongjin ;
Journal of The Korean Society of Integrative Medicine, volume 2, issue 4, 2014, Pages 1~8
DOI : 10.15268/ksim.2014.2.4.001
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to recognize the importance of balance in order to minimize daily living restrictions and to prevent falls due to aging, and develop an eight-week theraband exercise program to benefit the elderly. Method: A total of 20 elderly participants were divided into two groups. Group A used warm-up and finishing exercises for eight weeks including stretching and rhythm exercises conducted in a theraband exercise. Group B performed no exercises. Both A and B groups at weeks 1, weeks 4, weeks 8 were measured for deltoid and quadriceps femoris strength, balance and proprioception. Result: There was a significant difference in deltoid and quadriceps femoris muscle strength, balance and proprioception between Group A and Group B(p<0.05). Conclusion: The results of this study show that theraband exercises are thought to be able to contribute to the promotion of deltoid and quadriceps femoris muscle strength, balance and proprioception. It also contributes to minimize activity of daily living restrictions and prevent fall down in elderly. However in this study, generalization has been limited because of exercise duration, limited number of experiments and intensity modulated of theraband.

DOI : 10.15268/ksim.2014.2.4.009
Purpose : The purpose of this study was to ascertain the effects of air-pressure cervical traction on the tension headache in the adults. Method : All subjects were treated with air-pressure cervical traction while 15 minutes a day, 3 times per week, for 4 weeks. The effects of air-pressure cervical traction were evaluated by HIT-6(headache impact test), VAS, and flexion, extension, left right flexion, left right rotation of cervical ROM. The measured data were analyzed by using repeated ANOVA. Especially in order to investigate the effect of air-pressure cervical traction. The comparison with among three measurement time. Results : The results of this study were as follows; 1) Prior and two weeks measurement did not show significant differences. The head forward posture than before the experiment, each experimental group was significantly increased(p<.05). 2) Prior and two weeks measurement did not show significant differences. The experimental group than ever cervical ROM of the movable range increased significantly(p<.05). 3) The experimental group was significantly lower than before the VAS(p<.05). 4) HIT score of the experimental group was significantly lower than before(p<.05). Conclusion : These findings suggest that air-pressure cervical traction had effect on the tension headache in the adults.

Purpose : The purpose of this survey was to investigate the effect on job satisfaction and organizational commitment according to the job types of Pusan area physical therapists figuring out structural causality between job satisfaction and organizational commitment. Method : This survey was conducted through structured questionnaire for the physical therapists working in Pusan area, and data from 217 therapists were utilized in the final analysis. Data collection was deployment questionnaire using Google Docs (online survey), The SPSS 21.0 program was used according to for research purposes independent t-test was used for individual and job characteristics, was used according to job types and job satisfaction and organizational commitment are logistic regression analysis, correlation analysis and chi-square test. Result : The results of this study were as follows. 1. Overall job satisfaction according to the job types was appeared musculoskeletal physical therapist more 4 times. 2. Job types according to the organizational commitment did not make direct effect. Conclusion : Number of musculoskeletal physical therapist than neurological physical therapist was fewer and there were many per day treatment of patients, but overall job satisfaction was appeared that is higher. This is thought that job types affects more than working environment.

DOI : 10.15268/ksim.2014.2.4.049
Purpose : The purpose of this study was to research the effects on resistance CKC & OCK exercise method on lower limb muscle activity, in chronic stroke patients. Method : In this study, 18 patients with stroke caused by hemorrhage or infarction were participated. resistance exercise method was conducted in tow different group : one is a close kinetic chain exercise(CKC) group and the other is an open kinetic chain exercise(OKC) group. CKC with physical therapy was applied to 9 patients, and OKC with physical therapy was applied to 9 patients. Under the researcher`s guidance, exercise for CKC and OKC group carried out 3 times a week for 30 minutes during 4weeks. Result : There was significantly different for the vastus lateralis, tibialis anterior and gastrocnemius muscle activity within the intervention period both group. The vastus lateralis, tibialis anterior and gastrocnemius muscle activity was significantly increased within the CKC group. The vastus leteralis and tibialis anterior muscle activity was significantly increased within the OKC group. Conclusion : It was confirmed in this study that the CKC exercise was more effective than OKC exercise in improving lower limb muscle activity of chronic stroke patients. This study seggested that CKC may be suitable for individuals with a chronic stroke. furthermore study should be made a lot of researches regarding in other method and varying conditions for many hemiplegic patients.

Kim, Janggon ;
Journal of The Korean Society of Integrative Medicine, volume 2, issue 4, 2014, Pages 83~90
DOI : 10.15268/ksim.2014.2.4.083
Purpose : PBL is a teaching method to learn problem-solving process. Present study was to investigate the predictors of academic achievement when PBL is applied to students of physical therapy. Method : We Performed in-depth interviews and analyzed using the qualitative analysis by randomly assigning 5 of twenty four students who attended the class. Result : The results are classified into two categories and six sub-subjects. Based on two system of classification, PBL showed the learning effect through problem-solving methods because students directly participated in these processes. Also, students need to clearly comprehend communication method and decision-making process in order to progress the class smoothly. Conclusion : Therefore, futher studies will be continuously needed on how we apply PBL to various curriculums of physical therapy.

DOI : 10.15268/ksim.2014.2.4.091
Purpose : The purpose of this experiment is to find out the effectiveness which exert influence on cognitive skills by using the Driver Rehabilitation program for senior citizens who are over 65 years old and live in Busan. Method : From July first, 2014 to August 28th, 2014, we researched the 60 elderly people who are over 65 and go to community relief center which is in Busan. - 30 are experimental group and the other is control group. In the experimental group, we used Nintendo wii`s driving simulation program and RC Car driving program in the model road. For estimation, we used MVPT-3(Motor-Free Visual Perception Test-3), Trail Making Test - 1, Trail making Test - 2 and LOTCA(Loewenstein Occupational Therapy Cognitive Assessment). Result : Nintendo wii`s driving simulation program and RC Car driving program in model road results efficient visual perception ability. This programs results effectively in visual perception ability and space perception ability. This programs results effectively in motor apraxia ability. This programs results effectively in control ability for visual perception. This programs results effectively in thinking operation. Conclusion : Nintendo Wii`s driving simulation program and RC Car driving program in model road positively influence improving for visual perceptual ability and cognitive function of elderly people. Also it is considered as being more efficient for improving visual perceptual ability and cognitive function to implement basic rehabilitation training with driving rehabilitation program than basic training itself.
