Free-living gait characteristics in ageing and Parkinson’s disease: impact of environment and ambulatory bout length

Background Gait is emerging as a powerful diagnostic and prognostic tool, and as a surrogate marker of disease progression for Parkinson’s disease (PD). Accelerometer-based body worn monitors (BWMs) facilitate the measurement of gait in clinical environments. Moreover they have the potential to provide a more accurate reflection of gait in the home during habitual behaviours...

The role of exergaming in Parkinson’s disease rehabilitation: a systematic review of the evidence

Evidence for exercise based computer games (exergaming) as a rehabilitation tool for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) is only now emerging and is yet to be synthesised. To this end, we conducted a systematic review of the exergaming literature to establish what is known about the safety, feasibility and effectiveness of exergaming for rehabilitation of motor symptoms...

Retraining function in people with Parkinson’s disease using the Microsoft kinect: game design and pilot testing

Background Computer based gaming systems, such as the Microsoft Kinect (Kinect), can facilitate complex task practice, enhance sensory feedback and action observation in novel, relevant and motivating modes of exercise which can be difficult to achieve with standard physiotherapy for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD). However, there is a current need for safe, feasible and...

Discrete gait characteristics are associated with m.3243A>G and m.8344A>G variants of mitochondrial disease and its pathological consequences

Mitochondrial disease is complex and variable, making diagnosis and management challenging. The situation is complicated by lack of sensitive outcomes of disease severity, progression, contributing pathology and clinical efficacy. Gait is emerging as a sensitive marker of pathology; however, to date, no studies have quantified gait in mitochondrial disease. In this cross...
