	%X Deep Brain Stimulation or DBS is the second solution
for Parkinson's Disease. Its three parameters are: frequency, pulse
width and voltage. They must be optimized to achieve successful
treatment. Nowadays it is done clinically by neurologists and there is
not certain numerical method to detect them. The aim of this research
is to introduce simulation and modeling of Parkinson's Disease
treatment as a computational procedure to select optimum voltage.
We recorded finger tremor signals of some Parkinsonian patients
under DBS treatment at constant frequency and pulse width but
variable voltages; then, we adapted a new model to fit these data. The
optimum voltages obtained by data fitting results were the same as
neurologists- commented voltages, which means modeling can be
used as an engineering method to select optimum stimulation
voltages.
