People with Parkinson’s disease (PD) can exhibit disabling gait symptoms such as freezing of gait especially when distracted by a secondary task. Quantitative measurement method of this type of cognitive–motor abnormality, however, remains poorly developed. Here we examined whether stepping-in-place (SIP) with a concurrent mental task (e.g., subtraction) can be used as a simple method for evaluating cognitive–motor deficits in PD. We used a 4th generation iPod Touch sensor system to capture hip… CONTINUE READING
