Brief Summary:
This study is aimed to study the feasibility and safety of parkinson's glove that combined 2 module of tremor detection and tremor suppression with electrical muscle stimulation for using as device for rest tremor suppression in parkinson's disease patients

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Parkinson's Disease Device: Parkinson's glove Device: sham glove Phase 1

Detailed Description:

Study Population

  1. Target: Thai Parkinson's disease (PD) patients with predominant rest tremor : 50 patients
  2. Population sample: Patients who are getting their treatment at the Chulalongkorn Comprehensive Movement Disorder Clinic at King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital.

Study methods as follows:

  • All PD subjects will be provided the information on this research study and informed consent will be sought for every subjects.
  • All PD subjects will be interviewed by a movememt disorders specialist or a trained interviewer for their demographic and clinical data.
  • All PD patients will be examined for the severity of Parkinson's disease by a movement disorders specialist according the Unified Parkinson's disease Rating Scale (UPDRS), Hoehn and Yahr score, and tremor rating scale during the 'on period' in order to determine the additional effect of parkinson's glove and sham glove for suppression of tremor
  • All PD patients will be randomly allocated into 2 groups (25 Parkinson's glove and 25 sham glove) with block randomization method.
  • All patients will get Parkinson's glove for home-based usage for 14 days, the appointment for follow -up will be done for 4 times, with once daily phone call from investigators in order to check for improvement symptoms and all adverse events such as pain will be recorded and determined it severity by the visual analog scale.

Data collection

  • Demographic and clinical data: age, gender, clinical diagnosis, tremor rating scale, pain score by visual analog scale , Parkinson's disease's severity score for each subject according to establishing standard rating scale.
  • Tremor parameters form Parkinson's glove will be collected in SD card as 5 parameters: Peak magnitude, RMS, Angle, Frequency, Q. Number of stimulation times will be recorded.

Data analysis The statistical analysis in this study is based from SPSS program version 17. Categorical data will be analyzed for frequency and percentage. Continuous data will be analyzed by mean and standard deviation (SD). Non-parametric study would be preferred if the small sample size or in case of distribution of data do not present as normal distribution (determined by Kolmogorov-Smirnov test). The repeated ANOVA will be used for determined the efficacy of parkinson's glove in the difference times in follow up periods.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Parkinson's glove
Parkinson's glove 14 days use with 4 times follow-up
Device: Parkinson's glove
Parkinson's glove had module for detection tremor by gyroscope/acceleroscope and suppression rest hand tremor with electrical muscle stimulation

Placebo Comparator: sham glove
sham glove (with light and sound)14 days use with 4 times follow-up
Device: sham glove

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of participants who demonstrate the tremor suppression after use parkinson's glove [ Time Frame: up to 1 month follow up period ]
    To determine the tremor suppression after use the parkinson's glove by the tremor rating scale

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants who report pain or any adverse events from parkinson's glove [ Time Frame: 14 days periods of using parkinson's glove and in subsequent 1 month follow up period ]
    To determine the safety of parkinson's glove

  2. Determine the severity of pain related with parkinson's glove [ Time Frame: 14 days periods of using parkinson's glove ]
    To determine the severity of pain by visual analog scale
