A New Experimental Model to Improve Health Function after Hand and Wrist Surgery


  • Department of Medical Information, Kongju National University, Korea, Democratic People's Republic of


Objectives: The research aims on the development of an experimental technology to improve health function after hand and wrist surgery. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This survey was conducted with 166 patients who have visited orthopedic surgery of a university hospital located in Chungnam area from December 21, 2014 through June 8, 2015. The paper shows the differences of health function after carpal tunnel surgery pre and post modeling technology by the power of a 2-group t test using SPSS 17.0. Findings: As a result, for wrist tunnel syndrome, the carpal tunnel status in subjects who has suffered from paresthesia significantly decreased after the modeling technology (t = 1.92, p = .00). Therefore, a positive effect of this study will become a benchmark in the establishment of future medical information system and a literature that provides invaluable insights might in the effect of a medical information system. Improvements: This health model can be improved by considering other significant functions.
