The effect of visual cues on the number and duration of freezing episodes in Parkinson’s patients

Presented at 34th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society

Cue TypeBaselineVisual – On-DemandVisual – Continuous
Avg Length of Freezing Episodes8.8 s2.7 s4.3 s

 

Cue TypeBaselineVisual – On-DemandVisual – Continuous
Avg Number of Freezing Episodes2.32.11.3

“The results show that on-demand cueing seems to be more effective to reduce the duration of freezing episodes than continuous cueing…on-demand cueing had little effect on the number of freezing episodes while continuous cueing proved to avoid a certain percentage of freezing episodes.”
