Description
Kinesiologic analysis of gait disorders, postural instabilities and abnormal movements
is quite difficult to assess objectively by clinical observation, such as by specific
scale and video recordings. In this study, we reported one of the aspects of the usefulness
of three-dimensional motion analysis (Vicon Systems, Oxford, United Kingdom), which
can measure inclusive data of movement disorders and substitute for conventional assessments.
A 49-year-old man who had various dystonic symptoms, mainly on his left side
of the body, responded well to deep brain stimulation (DBS). The examination quantified
how the involuntary movements or other symptoms with dystonia changed before and
after treatments.
