Abstract: Objective: To examine the effect of a 4-week training programme using audio-visual cues on the performance of sit-to-stand (STS) in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD).
Background: Our previous study demonstrated that preparatory signals in the form of audiovisual cues could increase both peak horizontal and vertical velocities of STS in PD patients.
Methods: Fifty-two PD subjects were randomly allocated into audiovisual (AV), conventional exercise (Ex), and control groups. The AV group received STS training primed by AV cues, the Ex group received conventional exercises, while the control group received no treatment. Each subject was assessed 4 times: at baseline before treatment (week0), at the end of the 2nd week and the 4th week (week2, week4) of treatment, and 2 weeks after treatment completed (weekFU). VICON motion analysis system was employed to record the 3-dimensional STS motion at a natural speed. Peak horizontal and vertical velocities of the body’s centre of mass were analysed.
Results: When compared week2, week4 and weekFU with the baseline values in week0, the AV group showed significant percentage increases in
