Postural instability is a common disorder in Parkinson's disease (PD). The aim of this study was to evaluate stance stability of the subjects at the early stage of PD with both linear and nonlinear approaches. Moreover, this study aimed to find the effect of visual control on quiet stance postural control in these patients.

Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder with the pathological accumulation of alpha synuclein in the brain and peripheral nerve tissue. Early stages of synucleinopathies, often present cli...
The aim of the study was to identify abnormalities of whole-brain network functional organization and their relation to clinical measures in a well-characterized, multi-site cohort of very early-stage...
Parkinson disease is characterized by dopaminergic neuron loss in the substantia nigra pars compacta resulting in presynaptic nigrostriatal dopamine dysfunction. The purpose of this study was to searc...
Studies have shown that dual-task standing balance in Parkinson's disease (PD) is significantly diminished. Additionally, it is well accepted that dopaminergic medication improves dynamic balance (Ber...
Non motor symptoms and signs in Parkinson's disease (PD) also include a series of visual deficits; deepening these aspects could be useful for a better management of symptoms, to standardi...
When postural imbalance and gait difficulties emerge in subjects with Parkinson disease, patients are typically referred for a number of physical therapy sessions. However, there is a crit...
The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility, in regards to acceptability and implementation, of the Pre-Active PD intervention for increased high intensity goal-directed aerobic...
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...
On May 30,2018 ,Investigators intend to conduct a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of idebenone in the treatment of early-stage Parkinson's disease with moto...
A significant drop in BLOOD PRESSURE after assuming a standing position. Orthostatic hypotension is a finding, and defined as a 20-mm Hg decrease in systolic pressure or a 10-mm Hg decrease in diastolic pressure 3 minutes after the person has risen from supine to standing. Symptoms generally include DIZZINESS, blurred vision, and SYNCOPE.
Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.
Establishment of the level of a quantifiable effect indicative of a biologic process. The evaluation is frequently to detect the degree of toxic or therapeutic effect.
Vision considered to be inferior to normal vision as represented by accepted standards of acuity, field of vision, or motility. Low vision generally refers to visual disorders that are caused by diseases that cannot be corrected by refraction (e.g., MACULAR DEGENERATION; RETINITIS PIGMENTOSA; DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, etc.).
A POSTURE in which an ideal body mass distribution is achieved. Postural balance provides the body carriage stability and conditions for normal functions in stationary position or in movement, such as sitting, standing, or walking.
Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition, affecting one person in every 500, 95% of which are over 40. It is caused by degeneration of more than 70% of the substantia nigra, which depletes the dopamine (the neurotransmitter involved in pro...
