Training dual task performance during gait in Parkinson disease (2008–2012)

Difficulty performing more that one task at a time is a common and disabling problem experienced by people with Parkinson's disease (PD), a progressive neurological condition that affects the ability of people to perform well-learned movements like walking with normal speed and size. This research will investigate how to best train people with PD to dual-task when walking. Teaching people with PD how to dual task will enhance their everyday activities and has potential to reduce falls incidence. 16/03/2009 Progress Report Received (hard copy only)
