Title: Evaluation of instability and disturbance of gait after physical exercises using visual feedback and virtual reality in Parkinson’ disease

Abstract:

Aim of the study: The aim of the study was to assess the influence of physical exercises with the use of the Wii Fit balance board, acting through visual feedback training in virtual reality, on postural instability, gait disturbances and the quality of life in PD.Subjects: The study inclueded 40 subjects age 43-81 with the diagnosis of idiopathic PD.Methods: Subjects participated in a 6-week home-based balance training programme using Nintendo Wii Fit and balance board. The assessment of disturbance of balance and gait was performed with the use of the following tests: BBS, POMA-B, FRT, FSST , STST, 10 MWT, POMA-G, TUG. The examination regarding the quality of life was performed according to PDQ-39. Results: All the subjects participating in the study demonstrated the improvement of static and dynamic balance, which is shown by the results of the following tests: BBS, POMA-B, FRT, FSST and STST. The results obtained in POMA-G test demonstrate the improvement of gait. The assessment of the quality of life, performed with the use of PDQ-39, improved after the completion of the training programme. Conclusions: Physical exercises with the use of Wii Fit balance board, acting through visual feedback training in virtual reality, decrease postural instability, gait disturbances and the frequency of falls; and also improve the quality of life in PD.
