Abstract: Recent studies indicate that TT improves mobility and quality of life of patients with PD but there is a need for larger scale randomized controlled studies. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of 24 weeks of treadmill training (TT) on mobility and quality of life in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Methods: Thirty-five patients with PD (H& Y 1-2) were randomized to Speed TT, Mixed TT, and control group. The quality of life and the mobility were measured before, at mid-term and after the 6 months. Results and conclusions: Both TT groups improved velocity, cadence, stride length and distance travelled at the 6-Minute walking test at study endpoint. Only Mixed TT group improved quality of life. It appears that individuals with poorer baseline performances may benefit most from TT.
