Visual exproprioception refers to information of the body relative to the environment and may be the critical piece of sensory information that explains why gait improvements can be achieved with visual step cues in people with Parkinson's disease (PD). The primary aim of current study was to investigate the role of visual exproprioception in the positive(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of muscle fatigue of triceps surae and quadriceps muscles in stepping down in ongoing gait. We expected that the subjects would compensate for muscle fatigue to prevent potential loss of balance in stepping down. A total of 10 young participants walked over a walkway at a self-selected velocity to step down(More)
The influence of dopaminergic replacement (DR) on gait in people with Parkinson's disease (PD) is well documented. However, little is known about the acute effects of dopamine on more complex locomotor tasks that require visual guidance to avoid obstacles during gait. The authors investigated the influence of DR on locomotor behavior in a task where(More)
mais, a similaridade deve ser no nível mais alto, ou seja, no nível de execução do membro dominante. Ainda, no treinamento deve-se dar maior ênfase aos aspectos cinemáticos do chute do que aos aspectos relacionados à força, tanto do membro de chute como do membro de suporte. Conclui-se que as assimetrias entre os lados nos chutes existem e prejudicam o(More)
