Abstract


The purpose of this study is to find an optimal rehabilitation therapy intervention, especially in this study, by comparing the effects of applying both virtual reality (VR) programs and microwave diathermy (MWD) at the same time. The subjects of this study participated 19 college students in their 20s. The subjects were randomly divided into two groups. The first group received MWD (male:2 female:8) and VR ankle training, while the second group (male:2 female:7) received only the VR training. The interventions were conducted three times a week for four weeks. Biodex Balance System® is a tool to measure balance degree in this study. The MWD (PM-800S, ITO, Japan) intervention was conducted by setting the frequency of 2450㎒ and the output of 100W before the implementation of the VR exercise program. The exercise in this study was conducted using the Nintendo Wii Fit Plus program for VR exercise. Comparison of the results of the groups that implemented MWD and VR at the same time and those that implemented VR only are as follows. In the static balance, VR groups were significantly lower in all directions such as overall, anterior-posterior, and medial-lateral (p<.05). There was no statistically significant difference in dynamic balance (p>.05). If the therapist does not properly perform the examination when applying MWD for FAI, the effect might not be significant. VR exercise programs can also be used to improve the balance of FAI, although it has limitations.
