A Pilot Study of Virtual Reality and Antigravity Treadmill for Gait Improvement in Parkinson

Publication date: Oct 07, 2019

The aim of this study is to improve knowledge about mechanical gait assistance combined with virtual reality efficiency in gait recovery for Parkinson’s patients. It is hypothesised that 12 sessions of 30 minutes each, over a 4 weeks period, of antigravity treadmill rehabilitation combined with virtual reality treatment is effective for increase gait autonomy in patients with Parkinson’s disease.
