Gait and posture parameters of ten advanced Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients were assessed before and after starting levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) treatment by means of both objective video analysis and clinical assessment. After 3 years of treatment, gait and posture remained stable. A slower gait velocity at baseline significantly correlates with a higher axial and motor severity at follow-up. This pilot study suggests that validated video analysis software may support the clinical assessment of axial signs in PD patients who are candidates for device-aided therapies.

Abstract

Gait and posture parameters of ten advanced Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients were assessed before and after starting levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) treatment by means of both objective video analysis and clinical assessment. After 3 years of treatment, gait and posture remained stable. A slower gait velocity at baseline significantly correlates with a higher axial and motor severity at follow-up. This pilot study suggests that validated video analysis software may support the clinical assessment of axial signs in PD patients who are candidates for device-aided therapies.
