Although instability during turning is a disabling feature of Parkinson disease (PD), little is known about the associated postural characteristics. Our goals were to compare turning stability between individuals with PD and healthy individuals and to investigate whether dopaminergic medication improves turning stability.

When older adults turn to sit, about 80% of the subjects complete the turn before starting to sit i.e., a distinct-strategy, while in about 20%, part of the turning and sitting take place concurrently...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of a specific exercise (SE) training program focusing on balance and muscle strengthening and a turning-based treadmill (TT) training program o...
Visual hallucinations (VHs) can occur in several clinical conditions, of which the dementias, broadly defined, and Parkinson's disease rank among the most common. There is limited research on the live...
Nocturnal hypokinesia/akinesia and sleep disorder are believed to be common in Parkinson's disease (PD), but are often underestimated. To date, only a few studies have focused on nocturnal symptoms re...
Several characteristics associated with increased risk for Parkinson's disease (PD) have been identified, including specific genotypes and various non-motor symptoms. Characterizing non-motor features...
Difficulty in turning is common after Parkinson's Disease. Patients with Parkinson's Disease take a greater number of steps, longer duration, narrower base of support in turning. Thus, tur...
Patients with Parkinson's Disease frequently present impaired postural control that leads to loss of stability and increased risk of falls.Core system, includes passive structures of the t...
The present study is to examine the effects of a virtual reality based balance training using the Kinect sensor on postural stability and functional balance in individuals with Parkinson's...
A feasibility study using measures of turning function derived from Inertial Measurement Unit sensory before, and after, a modified exercise programme approach.
Our hypothesis is that intensive training with positive biofeedback may enhance postural control and stability in Parkinson's disease patients and in elderly fallers.
Biological adaptation, such as the rise of EPINEPHRINE in response to exercise, stress or perceived danger, followed by a fall of epinephrine during RELAXATION. Allostasis is the achievement of stability by turning on and turning off the allostatic systems including the IMMUNE SYSTEM; the AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM and NEUROENDOCRINE SYSTEMS.
Proteins associated with sporadic or familial cases of PARKINSON DISEASE.
A condition caused by the neurotoxin MPTP which causes selective destruction of nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons. Clinical features include irreversible parkinsonian signs including rigidity and bradykinesia (PARKINSON DISEASE, SECONDARY). MPTP toxicity is also used as an animal model for the study of PARKINSON DISEASE. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1072; Neurology 1986 Feb;36(2):250-8)
Locomotor behavior not involving a steering reaction, but in which there may be a turning random in direction. It includes orthokinesis, the rate of movement and klinokinesis, the amount of turning, which are related to the intensity of stimulation.
A group of disorders which feature impaired motor control characterized by bradykinesia, MUSCLE RIGIDITY; TREMOR; and postural instability. Parkinsonian diseases are generally divided into primary parkinsonism (see PARKINSON DISEASE), secondary parkinsonism (see PARKINSON DISEASE, SECONDARY) and inherited forms. These conditions are associated with dysfunction of dopaminergic or closely related motor integration neuronal pathways in the BASAL GANGLIA.
