Monitoring training activity during gait-related balance exercise in individuals with Parkinson’s disease: a proof-of-concept-study

  • Published on Jan 31, 2017

Background: Despite the benefits of balance exercise in clinical populations, balance training programs tend to be poorly described, which in turn makes it difficult to evaluate important training components and compare between programs. However, the use of wearable sensors may have the potential to monitor certain elements of balance training. ...

Objectively Assessed Physical Activity and its Association with Balance, Physical Function and Dyskinesia in Parkinson’s Disease

  • Published on October 19, 2016

Background: The desirable effects of physical activity in individuals with Parkinson’s disease are well-known, although according to results from previous studies factors associated with objectively assessed physical activity are not fully investigated. Objective: To investigate demographic, disease-related and mobility-related factors that associate with objectively measured physical activity, in a ...

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Neurofeedback-guided Motor Imagery Training and Motor Training for Parkinson’s Disease: Randomized Trial

  • Published on June 8, 2016

Objective: Real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging (rt-fMRI) neurofeedback (NF) uses feedback of the patient’s own brain activity to self-regulate brain networks which in turn could lead to a change in behavior and clinical symptoms. The objective was to determine the effect of NF and motor training (MOT) alone on ...

Comparison of Pedometer and Accelerometer Derived Steps in Elderly Individuals With Parkinson’s Disease or Osteoporosis Under Free-Living Conditions.

  • Published on Dec. 4, 2013

Aim To compare self-reported pedometer steps with accelerometer steps under free-living conditions in individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD) or osteoporosis (OP). Methods Seventy-three individuals with PD and 71 individuals with OP wore a pedometer (Yamax LS2000) and an accelerometer (Actigraph GT1M/GT3X+) simultaneously for one week. Results Fifty-one individuals ...

A novel conceptual framework for balance training in Parkinson’s disease-study protocol for a randomised controlled trial

  • Published on Sept. 27, 2012

Study Protocol Background There is increasing scientific knowledge about the interaction between physiological (musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cognitive and sensory) systems and their influence on balance and walking impairments in Parkinson’s disease. We have developed a new conceptual framework for balance training, emphasising specific components of balance control related to Parkinson’...
