Deep brain stimulation

Parkinson’s disease:
It is a chronic disease that is already difficult to manage and can severely affect the lifestyle of patients. The main symptoms of the disease are:

  • Tremor while resting
  • Slow movement
  • Difficulty walking and hardening
  • Sleep disorders, digestive tract and psychological problems caused by low dopamine secretion in the brain.

Deep brain stimulation is one of the effective ways to treat Parkinson’s disease, where brain stimulation is used to treat psychiatric diseases such as family tremor disorder, convulsion in certain parts of the body (muscular tension dysfunction), involuntary convulsions disorder (Tourette’s syndrome), obsessive compulsive disorder, depression and epilation.

Motion Analysis Laboratory

Walking gait analysis is the numerical evaluation as well as the identification and interpretation of movements. Walking analysis is applied by physical examination and three-dimensional movement assessment.

  • Physical examination: Detailed physical examination analysis begins with the evaluation of joint movements (ROM-range of motion) and measurement of angles of movement of joints, where measurements of height, weight, leg length and joint spacing are taken.
  • Three-dimensional motion assessment: During walking, the movements of the marks fixed to the body are detected by infrared cameras and DV cameras on the walking platform and transmitted to a special computer. Then the movement made on the computer is evaluated. Evaluate the records in detail and convert them into graphic and three-dimensional reports.
