YAMADA, Patrícia de Aguiar et al. Acute effect of treadmill training with auditory stimulation on gait kinematic parameters and mobility in Parkinsonians. Motri. [online]. 2016, vol.12, n.2, pp.107-115. ISSN 1646-107X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.6063/motricidade.7875.

The aim of this study was to investigate the acute effect of treadmill training with auditory stimulation on gait kinematic parameters and mobility in Parkinsonians. Participants were 14 individuals with idiopathic Parkinsonism, which were divided into 2 groups: intervention and control group. All patients were assessed through two tests that assess functional mobility, named Short Physical Performance Battery (SPPB) and Timed up and go (TUG); gait speed evaluation by the 10 meters test; and analysis of the step length on a 16-meter circuit, then participants were subjected to a treadmill gait session, intervention group with sound stimuli support and control group without stimuli. At the end of the intervention subjects were reassessed. The results showed that both groups improved mobility in the TUG test (p=0.003), gait speed in the 10 meters test (p=0.004) and step length (p=0.029), but there was no statistical difference between groups. The SPPB did not change significantly after the gait protocol (p=0.118). It is concluded that one treadmill gait session was effective in improving the gait kinematic parameters and mobility study, but the combination of auditory stimuli did not significantly changed the analyzed variables.
