  • Background: Parkinson's disease is the second most common degenerative brain disease after Alzheimer's disease. This study reviewed clinical practice of acupuncture and moxibustion treatment for Parkinson's disease to assess the future direction of these treatments. Methods: The literature search used 5 Korean Internet databases. The search terms were "Parkinson's disease." and "Parkinson (Korean)." 36 papers were selected: 27 case reports, 2 respropective studies, 3 uncontrolled clinical trials, 3 randomized controlled trial, 1 non-randomized controlled trial. Results: Filiform needles were used in most of studies. Pharmacopuncture, electro-acupuncture, and auricular acupuncture therapy were also used in combination with Filiform needles. 2. The most commonly used basic acupoints for Parkinson's disease was Saamchimbeop. The most commonly used form of pharmacopuncture involved Bee-venom. Conclusion: It is expected that treatment of Parkinson's disease with a variety of acupuncture and moxibustion therapies will continue to be studied, in addition to treatments that utilize existing Filiform needle treatments in clinical practice.

  • Purpose:To investigate of gait component in Parkinson's Disease patient. Methods:participated Parkinson's Disease patient(n=12) and Normal adult(n=13). gait measure used by GaitRite. Results:SPSS for win version 12 was used for statistic analysis and independent t-test used to find between two groups. In the comparison of temporal parameter of gait between groups, the swing phase was significant decreased in Parkinson's groups, in the stance phase was significant increased in Normal groups, in the single support was significant decreased in Parkinson's groups and in the double support was significant increased in Parkinson's groups(p<.05). In the asymmetrical ratio of singele support was significant increased in Parkinson's groups(p<.05), and the swing phase and stance phase was significant increased in Parkinson's groups(p<.05). Conclusion:In the Parkinson's Disease patient gait showed temporal and spatial component variable changes comparison normal adult. therefore, it was seems to very important considerable at gait tranning in clinical intervention.

  • Objectives : Parkinson's disease is a chronic neuron-degenerative disease. The medication of dopamine, one of the most common treatment for the disease, has effects of improving the symptom, but when taken for a long term, the medicine brings about side-effects such as the phenomenon of medicinal efficacy disappearance and dyskinesia. In addition, it doesn't have any effects in slowing down or stopping the development of Parkinson's disease. Methods : Accordingly, this study aims to investigate the clinical cases to stop or improve the development of Parkinson's disease by carrying out an independent treatment with Oriental medicine and a combined treatment with Western and Oriental medicines respectively for over 6 months. Results and Conclusions : The results of the study is expected to be an important precedent for the treatment of neuron-degenerative diseases of cranial nerve including Parkinson's disease in the future.

  • Purpose: The purpose of this study was to help understand the life and illness-experiences of focusing on a positive lifestyle, patients with Parkinson's disease, Method: The present study adopted a ethno graphic methodology. The participants for this study were 4 men and 3 women, who were treated for Parkinson's disease. Data was collected by an interview and participant observations from August 2003 to September 2004. Tape-recorded interviews were transcribed after the interview and classified and described to realistic tale. Result: Patients with Parkinson's disease experienced the stage of retake-off pursuing positive life by overcoming the acceptance process of illness including the stage of recognition of change, the stage of disruption and the stage of acceptance. The factors of positive life of Patients with Parkinson's disease were their strong will and social support. Conclusion: This study may be used in future studies as an important resource to develop nursing intervention strategies and programs for patients with Parkinson's disease that can help the patients to achieve strong willingness and positive life in Korea.

  • In this study, we propose a novel remote health monitoring system to accurately predict Parkinson's disease severity using a signomial regression method. In order to characterize the Parkinson's disease severity, sixteen biomedical voice measurements associated with symptoms of the Parkinson's disease, are used to develop the telemonitoring model for early detection of the Parkinson's disease. The proposed approach could be utilized for not only prediction purposes, but also interpretation purposes in practice, providing an explicit description of the resulting function in the original input space. Compared to the accuracy performance with the existing methods, the proposed algorithm produces less error rate for predicting Parkinson's disease severity.

  • Human voice reacts very sensitively to human's minute physical condition. For instance, human voice disorders affect patients profoundly especially in the case of Parkinson's disease. Acoustic tools such as MDVP, can function as an equipment that measures various voice in different objects. Many different approaches have been applied for analyzing the voice disorders for diagnosis of Parkinson's disease. According to the voice data of suspected Parkinson's patients from UCI Machine Learning Repository, it is reported to have 23 people with Parkinson's disease and 8 healthy people. Applying Mahalanobis Taguchi System (MTS) for diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, the correct diagnosis performance is compared to previous research results.

  • Background: Parkinson's disease is movement disorder due to dopaminergic deficiency. It has been noted that cognitive dysfunction also presented on Parkinson's disease patients. But, it is not clear whether such a cognitive dysfunction was a dopaminergic dysfunction or cholinergic dysfunction. Using linear and non-linear analyses, we analysed the effect of cognitive and motor symptom on EEG change. Methods: EEGs were recorded from patients with Parkinson's disease and essential tremor, and normal controls during rest. We calculated the power spectrum, correlation dimension and Lyapunov exponent by using 'Complexity'program. The power spectrum, correlation dimension, and Lyapunov exponent were compared between Parkinson's disease patients and essential tremor patients. Results: Theta power was increased in Parkinson's disease patient group. Correlation dimension was increased in Parkinson's disease patients. Positive correlation was noted between MMSE and correlation dimension, and negative correlation was noted between MMSE and Lyapunov exponent. Lyapunov exponent was decreased in Parkinson's disease patient. Conclusions: We conclude that the state of Parkinson's disease patient is characterized by increased correlation dimension and decreased Lyapunov exponent.

  • This review describes the overall knowledges of parkinson's disease. There are involved the causes. chemical characteristics, clinical features including tremor. bradykinesia, and rigidity. evaluation of movement disorders. and physical therapy of parkinson's disease. People who are diagnosed with parkinson's disease experience movement disorders that, if not managed, can lead to considerable disability. Before treated with parkinson's disease, it is important to recognise the pathogenesis of that. Then we need to develop physiotherapeutic programs based on the pathophysiology of parkinson's disease.
