BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The aerobic capacity of individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD) has not been characterized. This study (1) compared maximal exercise performance in individuals with and without PD, (2) compared exercise performance during upper- and lower-extremity exercise, and (3) described submaximal exercise responses. SUBJECTS Eight men with PD (PD group) and 7 men without PD (control group) participated. METHODS Subjects performed a lower-extremity ergometer test (LE test) and… CONTINUE READING
