Positive impact of short-term gait rehabilitation in Parkinson patients: a combined approach based on statistics and machine learning


  • Received: 30 April 2021 Accepted: 17 August 2021 Published: 23 August 2021
  • Parkinson's disease is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder in the world. Assumed that gait dysfunctions represent a major motor symptom for the pathology, gait analysis can provide clinicians quantitative information about the rehabilitation outcome of patients. In this scenario, wearable inertial systems for gait analysis can be a valid tool to assess the functional recovery of patients in an automatic and quantitative way, helping clinicians in decision making. Aim of the study is to evaluate the impact of the short-term rehabilitation on gait and balance of patients with Parkinson's disease. A cohort of 12 patients with Idiopathic Parkinson's disease performed a gait analysis session instrumented by a wearable inertial system for gait analysis: Opal System, by APDM Inc., with spatial and temporal parameters being analyzed through a statistic and machine learning approach. Six out of fourteen motion parameters exhibited a statistically significant difference between the measurements at admission and at discharge of the patients, while the machine learning analysis confirmed the separability of the two phases in terms of Accuracy and Area under the Receiving Operating Characteristic Curve. The rehabilitation treatment especially improved the motion parameters related to the gait. The study shows the positive impact on the gait of a short-term rehabilitation in patients with Parkinson's disease and the feasibility of the wearable inertial devices, that are increasingly spreading in clinical practice, to quantitatively assess the gait improvement.
