The integration of all of these musculoskeletal and sensory systems were clinically assessed (pre, post, and 3-mo follow-up) using state-of-the-art, computerized tools for the assessment and rehabilitation of balance and mobility disorders. Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment (CAREN) is used to treat patients with a variety of neurological and orthopedic problems, such as back pain, poor balance and posture, gait (walking) disorders, etc. Lewy bodies should be considered in a person with Parkinson disease who develops dementia or in someone who initially has dementia and then begins to display signs of parkinsonism, such as a stooped posture and impaired gait and balance. PARKINSON'S DISEASE CLINICAL FEATURES Parkinsonism consists of tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia, and characteristic abnormalities of gait and posture; may occur with many disorders. It helps us regulate our movements and focus visually Vision, blood pressure, heart rhythm and gait are typically assessed during your evaluation. Berg balance scale; The Clinical Test for Sensory Interaction in Balance; Postural analysis and Gait analysis,; Platform stabilometry7; Cervical flexion test8; Jull's cervical cranial test(to quantify)9; T4-T8 mobility test Wall Angel10; Respiration11; Hautant's Electrolyte Panel- disturbance of the acid base balance could lead to dizziness15; Coagulation Profile and Lipids-to evaluate vertebra-basilar disorders16; Serology-to rule out infectious diseases including syphilis and Lyme's17. As a results, patients develop characteristic tremors of the hands, arms, legs, jaw and face, as well as poor posture and difficulty maintaining balance, among many other possible symptoms. Further, a small prospective study [12] indicated improvement in low back pain and a recent clinical trial indicated short term benefits with the use of foot orthoses [13]. Parkinson's disease (PD) is idiopathic parkinsonism . Background An 80-year-old man with a 60 pack-year smoking habit, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia presented to a movement disorders clinic with a 30-month history of step-wise progression of gait, balance, and memory impairment. One of the most frustrating and challenging aspects of the evolution of the clinical syndrome of AD is the gradually intensifying loss of self-awareness and insight.38 This is referred to as anosognosia, a loss of awareness of one's deficits. Many words are used to describe dizziness. Bradykinesia, tremor, rigidity, and abnormal posture respond early in illness; cognitive symptoms, hypophonia, autonomic dysfunction, and balance difficulties respond poorly. Guidelines on the management of low back pain . The aim of this study was to evaluate the concept of a wearable device and, specifically: 1) to design and implement analysis procedures to extract clinically relevant information from data recorded using the wearable system; 2) to evaluate the design Moreover, trunk muscles proprioceptive inputs play an important role in the control of gait [4,5] and could be taken into account for the interpretation of posture and movement problems [6] of patients suffering from balance disorders [7]. The participants' experiences of reduced pain and their awareness of improvements in gait, balance and posture has been a positive outcome in that they are able to increase activities that had previously been limited. These include The vestibular system or labyrinth – the balance system – helps us maintain the orientation of our bodies in space and helps us keep our posture and sense of balance.
