  • 배경 및 목적 : 성대마비환자에서 마비된 성대의 기능회복을 위해 여러 가지 방법으로 신경재지배를 시도하였으나 대부분이 misdirected reinnervation에 의한 후두의 synkinesis로 임상적으로 널리 이용되지 못하고 아직까지는 성대내전술등으로 음성의 질을 개선시키는 정도로만 치료하고 있는 실정이다 최근 복원에서는 반회후두신경의 절단 후 일차봉합에 의한 신경 재지배 후 후윤상피열근에 만성전기자극을 주었으나 자극을 주지 않은 대조군에 비해 후두기능회복이 더 잘된다는 결과를 확인하지 못한바 있다. 1980년대부터 pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs)가 조직내에 ionic currents를 유도하여 cellular functions을 변화시킨다는 것을 보고된 이래로 PEMFs는 골절의 불유합이 있는 환자들에게 임상적으로 이용되고 있으며 최근 동물실험에서 흰쥐의 절단된 sciati nerve, common peroneal nerve, facial nerve의 신경재생을 촉진시켜 신경 재생이 조기에 되고 기능적으로 더 잘 회복되는 것으로 보고 있다. 이에 본 연구에서는 신경재생이 되더라도 기능적 회복이 힘든 것으로 알려진 반회후두신경의 재생 및 후두기능 회복에 대한 PEMFs의 영향을 알아보고자 하였다.

  • Objectives : The aim of this study was to develop the combined medical stimulus system consisted of the PEMFs (Pulsed electromagnetic fields) and LED which are able to stimulate local point such as acupoints and trigger points. Methods : To evaluate the therapeutic effect on the musculoskeletal disorders and the possibility of alternative method on manual acupuncture, we compared the fatigue recovery of two groups by analyzing the EMG and peak torque (non-stimulation and, stimulation group) after strenuous knee exercise. We chose the LR9 as a stimulation point. Results : The median frequency (MF) and fatigue index (F.I) of the stimulation group were recovered faster than those of the non-stimulation group. Also the peak torques of both groups were not restored until after 20 minutes. However, the peak torque of the stimulation group was regained higher than that of the non-stimulation group. Conclusions : We confirmed that the proposed combined stimulus system had useful effects as treatment instrument of musculoskeletal disorder using non-invasive method of PEMFs and LED.

  • Objectives : The purpose of this research was to develop the magnetic acupuncture system which used solenoid coil for magnetizing acupuncture needle. The system could generate the meridian electric potential (MEP) similar to the potential by manual acupuncture. Thus, we tried to confirm the therapeutic effect that is caused by the MEP generation. Methods : To confirm the MEP, we stimulated the magnetic acupuncture with at 2Hz, $92.7{\pm}2mT$, PEMFs (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Fields) at ST37 and measured the evoked potential between ST36 and ST41. Also, we conducted a fatigue recovery test using isokinetic exercise in order to identify the therapeutic effect on musculoskeletal disorders. We chose LR9 as a stimulation point. To observe the state of fatigue, we measured the EMG and analyzed median frequency and peak torque for 20minutes. Results : We observed that MEP which incurred from magnetic acupuncture was higher than he reported MEP induced by manual acupuncture. Moreover, its modes were divided into two types by the direction of magnetic flux. When generating magnetic flux in the direction of acupoint, the positive peak voltage of the MEP was generated. In contrast, negative peak voltage of the MEP was generated whenever meganetic flux generated in the outward direction. As a result of fatigue recovery, the median frequency (MF) of the magnetic acupuncture group were recovered faster than that of the non-stimulation group. However, the peak torques of both groups were not restored until after 20 minutes. Conclusions : We confirmed that the magnetic acupuncture system can lead to the MEP similar to manual acupuncture. Moreover, the MEP had a therapeutic effect on the musculoskeletal disorders.
