The aim of this study was to analyse the kinematic characteristics of the strides before freezing and compare this with a voluntary stop and ongoing gait. Also, we investigated whether gait profiles were different as a function of the side of the body. Ten patients were included with a mean age of 64.8 years (SD 5.1). Within a Vicon 3D gait laboratory, patients performed several trials of normal walking and voluntary stops or were exposed to circumstances, which provoked freezing in the off… CONTINUE READING
