UNLABELLED Freezing of gait (FOG) is associated with gait asymmetry and arrhythmicity, cognitive impairment in Parkinson's disease (PD). However, the role of postural instability (PI) in and the effect of dopaminergic medication (meds) on FOG are unclear. We investigated the effect of meds on FOG using a validated metric, Stepping in Place (SIP) and the relationship between PI and FOG. METHODS We assessed static posturography (off meds), SIP, UPDRS-III (off/on meds) and the FOG-questionnaire… CONTINUE READING
