Upper-limb disorders in patients with Parkinson's disease include decreased speed and amplitude of movements, difficulty in sequential tasks, and disrupted execution of fine manipulative hand activities.The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of home-based goal-oriented upper limb intervention in patients with Parkinson's disease.
Parkinson's disease is a neurodegenerative neurological disorders involving progressive impairment in motor, mood and cognitive functions. Movement disorders have a negative impact on individual's ability to perform well-learned motor skills. These include akinesia, bradykinesia, rigidity and tremor at rest.
A goal-planning process should be useful to ensure that patients agree on the goals of rehabilitation. Thus, the purpose of the study was to evaluate the effects of home-based goal-oriented upper limb intervention in patients with Parkinson's disease.
