Computer Game (Wii) for Gait and Balance Training

Study Title:

Computer-based gait and balance training for people with Parkinson's disease

The aim of this study is to develop a computer-based training program for people who have Parkinson's disease.  The study uses an existing training program, which has been effective in a classroom setting to improve balance and walking, and modifies it into interactive activies that ultimately could be performed at home and be fun and interesting.  Patients with PD may maintain or improve balance and walking.

This study is currently analyzing data from enrolled patients and plans to organize an additional phase of the study in the coming months.
