Meta-analysis of virtual reality-based rehabilitation training in Parkinson’s disease

Takeaway

  • In people with Parkinson’s disease (PD), virtual reality-based rehabilitation training significantly improved balance, quality of life, activities of daily living (ADLs), and symptoms of depression.

Why this matters

    While long-term rehabilitation is needed to enhance function in people with PD, traditional rehabilitation training may not be sustained over time; virtual reality-based rehabilitation training may be a more engaging, convenient, and cost-effective option in PD.
