Brain Stimulation to Improve Walking for Patients With Parkinson’s Disease

Researchers from Japan have addressed the limitations of existing treatments for gait-related disturbances in Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients. They utilized a new neuromodulation approach involving closed-loop transcranial electrical stimulation synchronized with patients’ gait rhythm. This technique showed promising results, improving gait parameters such as speed, symmetry, and stride length in patients with PD and other neurological disorders. The study involved twenty-three participants who received either active treatment or a sham treatment. The cerebellum, a key region for gait control, was targeted during the non-invasive treatment. This innovative intervention offers hope for enhancing gait function and could potentially aid in the rehabilitation of PD and other neurological disorders.
