Gait problems such as festination and freezing are thought to be strongly influenced by visual stimulation [10].
We recruited consecutive, consenting patients with PD who had off-state gait shuffling, festination, and/or freezing and a score >1 on the Unified Parkinson Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) III item 29 and who did not require continuous ambulatory aid from the Movement Disorders Center at the University of Cincinnati.
The main inclusion criteria were diagnosis of levodopa-responsive PD; Hoehn and Yahr (HY) stage [greater than or equal to]2; and presence of gait impairment, including dragging of the affected leg, freezing, or festination.
