Evaluate the use by the patient and his family and professional environment of a self-rehabilitation device with follow-up in tele-rehabilitation in people with Parkinson's disease taking into account the different actors within a health area (health professionals and paramedics in structure and in liberal).

In this three-year project, our research teams are going to consecutively explore these important clinical, drug and physical rehabilitation treatment effects, noradrenergic network, auton...
The present study aims to investigate the effect of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) associated with physiotherapy in parkinson´s rehabilitation. Previous studies showed tha...
Patients affected by Parkinson disease (PD) can benefit from rehabilitation although the evidences are scattered. In the last years there are increased evidences that virtual reality can i...
Postural abnormalities (PA) are drug refractory complications in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) leading to pain, imbalance, gait disorders and fall-related injuries. It ultimately ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the underlying mechanism and influence of single task vs. dual task exercise on rehabilitation in Parkinson's disease. The upcoming exercise interv...
Parkinson disease is a common neurodegenerative disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. Important advances in the treatment, etiology, and the pathogenesis of Parkinson disease have been m...
The authors report of a patient with Parkinson's disease in whom imaging revealed a complete agenesis of the corpus callosum. Although this co-occurrence is probably coincidental, this finding suggest...
Most studies in Parkinson's disease (PD) have focused on the direct effects of social support and self-efficacy on caregiver burden. This study aimed to test our prediction that caregiver self-efficac...
Freezing of gait (FOG) is one of the most disabling symptoms of Parkinson disease (PD). It has been found that different land-based rehabilitation approaches based on motor and cognitive strategies co...
This study aimed to quantitatively investigate the existence of differences in spatio-temporal and kinematic parameters of gait in men and women with Parkinson's disease (PD) using computerized three-...
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)
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.
Parkinsonism following encephalitis, historically seen as a sequella of encephalitis lethargica (Von Economo Encephalitis). The early age of onset, the rapid progression of symptoms followed by stabilization, and the presence of a variety of other neurological disorders (e.g., sociopathic behavior; TICS; MUSCLE SPASMS; oculogyric crises; hyperphagia; and bizarre movements) distinguish this condition from primary PARKINSON DISEASE. Pathologic features include neuronal loss and gliosis concentrated in the MESENCEPHALON; SUBTHALAMUS; and HYPOTHALAMUS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p754)
The diagnosis and treatment of human responses of individuals and groups to actual or potential health problems with the characteristics of altered functional ability and altered life-style. (American Nurses Association & Association of Rehabilitation Nurses. Standards of Rehabilitation Nursing Practice, 1986, p.2)
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...
