Braking impulse and muscle activation during unplanned gait termination in human subjects with parkinsonism.

Abstract

Persons with parkinsonism (PD) are known to have difficulty with both rapid force production and declination, and may not be able to adjust force levels during bimanual tasks in the upper extremity. We proposed that these deficits might underlie the problems experienced by those with PD when attempting to rapidly terminate locomotor activity. Rapid gait… (More)
