Reduced balance limits social and personal freedoms in people with Parkinson’s disease

Takeaway

  • Individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD) require additional life planning to account for the motile unpredictability of the disease, which hinders their ability to participate in everyday activities and perform dual tasks.

Why this matters

    The information from this study can inform people with PD in the variable nature of balance control and help in developing interventions that address the balance deficits in everyday life.
