The Study of Behavior and Histological Change on Treadmill Exercise Intensity after Spinal Cord Injury in Rats
Kim, Young-Eok ;
Journal of the Korean Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology , volume 6, issue 1, 2008, Pages 1~15
This study was designed to investigate the effect of treadmill exercise of low-intensity and high-intensity on the functional recovery and histological change in spinal cord injury rats. Sprague-Dawley rats were experimented(n=15) for this research. Spinal cord injury was induced by the NYU drop impacter device after laminectomy. After operation, rats were test at modified Tarlov scale at 3 days, and divided into the control group(n=5), experimental group I(n=5, low-intensity treadmill) and experimental group II(n=5, high-intensity treadmill). The rats were disciplined from 7 day through 21 day. Functional recovery was evaluated by the BBB scales and the Grid Walk test for the progressive locomotor recovery at 3, 7, 14, 21 days. Histopathological studies for the muscle in order to observation the change of damage and size of the organized surface which is visible visually it executed hematoxylin & eosin stain. According to the result of 4 weeks of treadmill exercise, group II showed improvement than group I of motor behavior after spinal cord injury.

Journal of the Korean Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology , volume 6, issue 1, 2008, Pages 17~30
This study was investigated the effects of pain and functional recovery when low frequency electrical stimulation and aquatic exercise applied to sciatic nerve injured rats. The rats were assigned into four groups; Group I(n=20, control group), Group II(n=20, low frequency electrical stimulation group), Group III(n=20, aquatic exercise group), Group (n=20, applied low frequency electrical stimulation and aquaatic exercise group). Each IV group measured hot plate examination, sciatic nerve functional index(SFI), c-fos.. In hot plate examination, group II, IV showed effect than group Iat 14 days after injured(p<0.01) and group III, Ⅳ showed effect than group I at 21, 28 days after in-jured(p<0.01, p<0.001). In SFI, group II, III, IV showed effect II, III, IV than group I and group IV showed effect than group II at 14, 21 days after injured(p<0.001). group II, III, IV showed effect than group I at 28 days after injured(II = p<0.01, III and IV = p<0.001). Effects of pain and function recovery when low frequency electrical stimulation and aqua-exercise applied to sciatic nerve injured rats, group Ⅳ were most effected to sciatic nerve injured rats. As well as group II and III were effected to sciatic nerve injured rats.

Journal of the Korean Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology , volume 6, issue 1, 2008, Pages 31~42
This study performed in order to investigate the effect of isometric resistance exercise for vastus medialis oblique muscle with EMG(electromyography) biofeedback training which are applied to the patello-femoral joint of patients with osteoarthritis on the improve of function. The subjects had no neuromuscular disorders, and they were elder patients with osteoarthritis, 20 women. And the experiment was performed in control group, taping with EMG biofeedback training group respectively, and the measurement was carried out before and after the treatment and 4 weeks after the treatment. Motor unit action potential analysis with surface electromyography showed a significant change in RMS(root mean square) amplitude and MDF(median frequency) in vastus medialis oblique muscle(p<0.05). VMO/VL(vastus medialis oblique/vastus lateralis oblique) MDF ratio showed a significant change between groups(p<0.05). Taping with EMG biofeedback training applied to patello-femoral joint of osteoarthritis patients appeared to be effective for muscle function improvement. However, increase of muscular force in vastus medialis oblique muscle appears to have a positive effect on improve of function along with correction effect on patella malalignment. In conclusion, in case of osteoarthritis patients with loss of patello-femoral joint function, it appears to be effective to practice isometric resistance exercise of vastus medialis oblique muscle selective with taping.

Journal of the Korean Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology , volume 6, issue 1, 2008, Pages 43~55
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of microcurrent stimulation intensity(
- 5 pps pulse frequency was same) on wound healing in rat. Sixty male Korean rats were randomly divided into 4 groups of 15 for 4 different treatment protocols(none-control group,
experimental groups). Experimental 20 mm linear wound were made and all animals in the experimental groups were received microcurrent stimulation once a day for 20 minutes until sacrifice days(1st day, 3rd day, 6th day). A vernier caliper was used to measure a wound healing length and an optical microscope was used to determine any histological changes. The repeated measures two-way ANOVA was used for statistical differences in wound healing length. Experimental results were as follows: 1. In the examination with the naked eye, all groups showed similar changes until 1st day. But from 3rd day, a little intercellular fluid soaked through wound region in control group. In experimental groups, little intercellular fluid soaked through wound region, and swelling and redness did not appear. 2. Wound length of experimental
group was significantly decreased than control group(p<0.001). And in the aspect of application period, wound length was significantly decreased in 3th, 6th day than 1st day and 6th day than 3th day (p<0.001). In conclusion, it has been found that the microcurrent stimulation had a positive effect on wound healing. And
stimulation intensity was more effective than other intensities(
) in wound healing. Also, low-intensity microcurrent stimulation was more effective on the purpose of wound healing.

In this paper, the effects of the external-rotation exercise on the gait of hemiplegia was investigated. 26 patients with hemiplegia due to cerebrovascular accident participated in this study. Subjects were randomly assigned to experimental group(n=12) and control one(n=14). 12 subjects of the experimental group were received the external rotation reducing exercise on the mat with seating and supine posture after the general therapeutic exercise for hemiplegia. 14 subjects of the control group were received only general therapeutic exercise. The effects of external rotation reducing exercise were evaluated by measurements of gait velocity, cadence, stride length, step length and foot angle using ink-foot prints. The collected data were analyzed statistically based on Wilcoxon, Mann-Whitney and correlation analysis. After treatment of three weeks, it turned out that external rotation reducing exercise has the significant effect on foot angle(p<0.01). However the exercise has no statistically significant direct effect on the gait velocity, cadence, stride length and step length.

Purpose: This study aims to examine effect of microcurrent electrostimulation on burn healing by electric intensity and of which the electric intensity on the acute burn being cured with microcurrent electrostimulation therapy. Methods: 28 Sprague Dawley Rats is classified into a control group of 8 rats, an experimental group I of 10 rats and an experimental group II of 10 rats. The control group is not cured, the experimental group I is exposed to 10 Hz, and
with microcurrent electrostimulation, and the experimental group II is exposed to 10 Hz,
for 15 minutes a day. The next day, 2th, 4th, and 6th day after rats is burned. Result: There are not significant differences of length change of the burn cure between the control group, the experimental group I, and the experimental group II by a period. However, systematically hair follicle cell on the 2th day and epidermal cell on the 6th day turn up in the experimental group I, and the experimental group II. Inquiry: Nancy(1994) did not obtain the desired result when the skin of a pig is exposed to 0.1 Hz, and
for wound healing. In the result of the study, when burn length is measured on the 2th, 4th, and 6th to see the length change of acute burn, there is not significant differences among 3 groups. Conclusion: Statistically, there is not significant differences of the length change between 3 groups. However, systematically the burn is cured faster in the experimental group I, and the experimental group II than in the contrast group.

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of Inline-skating exercise on the static balance. Total 10 subjects with common were recruited from university for student in Kwangyang, and the Inline-skating exercise was conducted 3times at a week during 2 weeks. Balance test was measured by using Good Balance with overall index, NSEO(normal standing when eye open), NSEC(normal standing when eye close), OLREO(one leg right standing when eye open), OLREC(one leg right standing when eye close), OLLEO(one leg left standing when eye open), OLLEC(one leg left standing There was statistically significant difference of the balance ability of the left-right only between the before and the after exercise in the case of NSEO position. however, the statistically difference was not found in terms of the Mean X speed, Mean Y speed, Velocity moment between the before and the after exercise in the case of NSEC position. There was statistically significant difference of the balance ability of the Mean X speed, Mean Y speed between the before and the after exercise in the case of OLLEO and OLLEC position, however, the statistically difference was not found in terms of the Velocity moment between the before and the after exercise in this case. There was statistically significant difference of the balance ability of all the terms between the before and the after exercise in the case of OLREO. however, the statistically difference was not found in terms of the Mean Y speed only between the before and the after exercise in the case of OLREC. In this case, the statistically difference was found in terms of Velocity moment between the before and the after exercise. This study showed that Inline-skating exercise was effected on the improvement of the balance ability in normal peoples.

The purpose of this study is to use standard and downward slope of the keyboards with taping to influence electromyography of upper trapezius. The effect of taping raise a medical criticism, but we do an experiment on two kind of keyboards with taping in order to decrease stress of shoulder. Subjects are in Seonam university whose are twelve healthy adults in their twenties. This experiment used two kind of keyboards. Standard keyboard's degree is
and another keyboard's degree is
. Application of Kinesio taping attached belly of upper trapezius tightly. Measurement of electromyography attached posterior of acromion process go by spinous process of 7th cervical vertebra and upper trapezius. Method of analysis used Repeated measure two-way ANOVA. Result of this experiment, both shoulder's muscle activity increased(p<.05) when used standard keyboard and downward keyboard with taping used. We compared muscle activity that used downward keyboard than standard keyboard. Statistically, it dosen't increase in neck and shoulder(p>.05). Therefore, using a keyboard with upper trapezius's taping in order to decrease muscle activity isn't influenced.
