  • Objective: The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of treating the carpal tunnel syndrome by using both the Herbal Acupuncture and herbal medicine therapy on five cases. Methods: For the Herbal Acupuncture, Jungseonguhhyul No. 1 and Hwanglyunhaedoktang were used. For the herbal medicine, Dangguihwalhyul-tang was used. The patients were treated once in every two days; the result was evaluated after ten treatments. Patients' conditions were monitored through their testimony, phalen's test, nerve conduction study and electromyography. Results: In all five cases, the patients showed improvement; in four cases, the patients no longer had most of the clinical symptoms. Based on the result of the nerve conduction study, for the four cases in which the patients no longer displayed most of the clinical symptoms, their nerve conduction rate improved; for the remaining one case, the patient's nerve conduction rate deteriorated. Conclusions: The results of this study demonstrate that combining the Herbal Acupuncture and herbal medicine therapy can have noticeable effects in treating the carpal tunnel syndrome; developing more variety of the herbal acupuncture would lead to even better treatment results.

  • Purpose : The Purpose of this study was to pain release and power grip in wrist affect of needle TENS(utilized of TENS in electrotherapy with oriental needle) and ultrasound therapy and taping with carpal tunnel syndrome patients. Methods : To study divided of each groups. each groups were apply to ultrasound therapy for 5 mintus, Taping was attached from wrist joint to elbow joint medial epicondly after maximum extension. needle TENS application was following of median nerve in wrist. Result : 1. The pain was released on needle TENS, ultrasound and taping groups of all(p<.05). 2. Power grip was enhanced in needle TENS and taping groups(p<.05) but ultrasound was no difference compared with before therapy. 3. Compared with needle TENS and taping therapy about pain release was needle TENS groups better than ultrasound groups(p<.05) Conclusion : Needle TENS, taping therapy are more effectable than ultrasound therapy for grip power and pain release. Needle TENS therapy is more effectable than taping therapy for pain release. Therefor, neddle TENS therapy is most effectable for pain release with carpal tunnel syndrome patients.

  • 인간중심의 작업설계는 오래전 부터 공학의 중요한 과제로 여겨왔다. 이에 인간은 여 러가지 다양한 형태의 도구를 만들고 개선해 왔으며, 이 중 Handtool은 중요한 도구 중의 하나 이다. 인간과 도구가 그 사용에 있어 최적의 조화를 이루어갈 때 위험요소는 사라지게 되고 작업의 부하는 줄어들며, 작업시간의 단축과 함께 작업의 정확도는 나아지게 된다. 기술의 발달은 갈수록 복잡하고 위력적인 도구를 발명해 내고 있지만 아직도 우리의 주변에는 이의 설계에 있어 인간공학적인 요소가 충분히 고려되고 있다고는 할 수 없다. 실제로 최근에 와서는 많은 수 공구들이 동력화되고, 그 성능은 갈수록 나아져 가고 있는 반면, 이의 사용 으로 인한 사고라든지, CTS(Carpal Tunnel Syndrom)과 같은 누적외상병은 별로 나아짐이 없이 경우에 따라서는 오히려 심해져가고 있다. 따라서 도구의 인간공학적인 다지인의 목적은 위험요소의 제거, 작업부하의 절감 그리고 작업능력의 향상에 있다고 할 것이다. 기존의 연구 중 개별적인 Handtool의 인간공학적인 디자인의 예는 이미 많이 연구가 되어 있다. 그러나 이 러한 연구들의 사례는 일관된 시스템적인 접근방식을 갖지 못하여 본 연구에서는 인간공학적인 측면에서 Handtool의 설계를 위해 고려되어야 할 요소와 함께 그 체계적인 접근방식을 제시한다.

  • Objective: The purpose of this study is to examine about dental hygienists' myofascial pain syndrome, lower back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), medial and lateral epicondylitis, hand-arm vibration syndrom and work-related musculoskeletal syndrome (WMSD) experience and hygienists' posture, motion. Methods: The self-administered questionnaire was surveyed from June 1 to September 30 of 2018 targeting 280 dental hygienists in Gyeongnam province and 266 dental hygienists' answers were analyzed. Results: The average daily working hours of a dental hygienist was more than eight hours 59.0%, with an average of 33 patients per day. The average number of patients who receive treatment for more than 30 minutes is 15. The angle of motion of the subjective evaluation was above 60%. Medical position and form of movement were more than 50% above the standard level. Symptoms of posture and motion that cause WMSD were hand-arm vibration syndrome 68.1%, myofascial pain syndrome 58.6%, lower back pain 51.1%, CTS 50.4% in order. Experience WMSD related symptoms which dental hygienists experience were myofascial pain syndrome 92.9%, CTS 57.9%, lower back pain 56.4%, medial and lateral epicondylitis 37.2%, hand-arm vibration syndrome 24.4%. Conclusion: The above results showed the posture and motion of dental hygienists and were found that the experience rate which dental hygienists experience WMSD of myofascial pain syndrome, Lower back pain, and CTS was significantly more than 56%.
