Rhythmic auditory stimulation to reduce falls in healthy elderly and patients with Parkinson's disease : a randomized control trial
MetadataShow full item record
Background: The risk of falling over the age of 65 is 33% for healthy elderly and 40% for a person with Parkinson's disease over a one year period. A training program to reduce this risk could have significant impacts on health care cost and assist in maintenance of patient safety, independence, and quality of life. Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether a home-based Rhythmic Auditory Stimulation (RAS) gait training program would have an effect on gait parameters associated with falls in healthy elderly and PD patients with a history of frequent falls. Method: Twenty ...
