Clinical Trial Summary

The proposed control intervention trial, aims to analyse the effects of Dance in the turning characteristics in patients with Parkinson Disease (PD) using three- dimensional (3D) analysis during the timed up and go (TUG) test.

Clinical Trial Description

Experimental Design: control intervention non-randomized trial. Search Location: University of Wolverhaptom, Walsall Campus, United Kingdom; Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Participants: 15 adults aged between 50 and 80 years, with a clinical diagnosis of idiopathic PD, staging between 1 and 4 of the Hoehn & Yahr Scale, recruited from Dance for Parkinson's Projects, West-Midlands County, United Kingdom, and from Parkinson's UK (United Kingdom). Interventions: Dance intervention for 3 months, 2 times/week (1 instructor lecture session and 1 home session following a prepared video), 2 hours per week. Controls, not alter their personal lifestyle, but undergo the same testing as the exercise intervention group. Outcomes: clinical-functional parameters (number of steps and total time of the 180 turning phase of the Timed up and go Test - TUG - and biomechanics parameter - girdle dissociation) Data Analysis: Data will be described by average values and standard deviation values. All statistical analyses will be carried out using SPSS version 23, and Microsoft Excel Program version 16.44. The significance level is set at p<0.05. The Cohen's d is going to be used to predict effect interpreted as small d= 0.2, medium d=0.5, and large d=0.8, and 95% confidence intervals were presented. ;
