Abstract: The study used an algorithmic method to measure fluctuations in the timetable of gait cycle events in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Subjects with severe PD (n=10; age 63.6 ± 10.1 years; Hoehn & Yahr [H & Y] disability score 3 or 4), mild PD (n=10; age 65.5 ± 4.3; H & Y ≦ 2), and normal controls (n=10; age 65.1 ± 13.3) were studied. A camera was mounted on the trunk, and the subjects walked in a self-selected manner. Overhead images of the foot path were analyzed to geometrically describe motion in terms of displacement and velocity. The timing of three gait events, i.e.,¹⁾ feet adjacent,²⁾ maximum speed of swinging foot, and³⁾ the trunk climbing to its highest point in mid-stance, was determined for extracted steps during steady-state gait. In severe PD, 74.9 ± 21.7% of steps was timetabled so that the swinging leg and the stance-phase leg became side by side before the trunk rose to its highest point to achieve 'foot clearance'. This pattern was significantly less prevalent in mild PD and controls. An altered timetable of gait cycle events may provide quantitative indices of gait disability during steady-state walking in patients with PD.
