In healthy people, energy expenditure is generally higher during walking with poles (WP) than during conventional walking (W). In persons with Parkinson’s disease (PD), walking is slower and may be associated with greater energy consumption, stride-to-stride variability, and difficulty in regulating stride length. The aim of this study was to determine whether treadmill WP at three different speeds could induce changes in gait kinematics and oxygen consumption in PD patients. The study sample… CONTINUE READING
