  author={Talia Herman and Nir Giladi and Jeffrey M. Hausdorff},
  journal={Journal of Neural Transmission},
This report reviews recent investigations of the effects of treadmill training (TT) on the gait of patients with Parkinson’s disease. A literature search identified 14 relevant studies. Three studies reported on the immediate effects of TT; over-ground walking improved (e.g., increased speed and stride length) after one treadmill session. Effects persisted even 15 min later. Eleven longer-term trials demonstrated feasibility, safety and efficacy, reporting positive benefits in gait speed… CONTINUE READING
