Exercise can improve both motor and non-motor symptoms in people with Parkinson’s disease (PwP), but there is an unmet need of accessible and sustainable exercise options. This study aimed to evaluate the effect, feasibility, and safety of a regularly performed live-streaming tele-exercise intervention for PwP.
A live-streaming exercise intervention was implemented twice a week for 12 weeks in PwP. We measured the motor and nonmotor scales in these patients before and after the intervention. Changes in clinical scores from baseline to post-intervention were analyzed using a paired t-test. Factors associated with improvements in clinical scales and compliance were analyzed using Pearson’s correlation analysis.
56 participants were enrolled in the study. There were significant improvements in HADS-A (p = 0.007), HADS-D (p < 0.001), UPDRS part III (p < 0.001), UPDRS total (p = 0.015), H&Y stage (p = 0.027), and PFS-16 (p = 0.026) scores following intervention. Motor improvements were associated with improvements in mood symptoms and fatigue. Higher motor impairment at baseline was associated with a higher compliance rate and better composite motor and non-motor outcomes (ΔUPDRS total score) post-intervention. Overall, the 12-week tele-exercise program was feasible and safe for PwP. No adverse event was reported. Overall adherence was 60.0% in our cohort, and 83.4% were able to participate in more than half of the exercise routines.
The live-streaming tele-exercise intervention is a safe, feasible, and effective non-pharmacological treatment option that can alleviate fatigue and improve mood and motor symptoms in PwP.

AbstractAbstract PDFSupplementary Material
Medication beliefs are a significant determinant of medication adherence in chronic illness. This study aimed to identify demographic, clinical, and medication-related factors associated with medication beliefs in patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD).
We used a descriptive cross-sectional design with a convenience sample of 173 PD patients who had been taking antiparkinson drugs for more than one year.
The subjects who believed PD medication was more necessary had more severe illness, younger age of onset, longer illness duration, and longer duration of levodopa therapy. They had higher levels of non-motor symptoms and depression, number of medication uses, number of drugs, and levodopa equivalent dose, and they reported fluctuation of motor symptoms and dyskinesia. The subjects who used catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitors, dopamine agonists, amantadine, and monoamine oxidase-B (MAO-B) inhibitors had significantly higher necessity scores than those who did not use them. The subjects who had higher concerns about PD medications had higher levels of non-motor symptoms and depression. The subjects using amantadine and anticholinergics had significantly higher concern scores than those who did not use them. Positive necessity-concerns differentials were associated with severe illness, the presence of motor fluctuation and dyskinesia, and the use of COMT inhibitors. Based on stepwise multiple regression, the most significant factors influencing necessity beliefs were severe illness, followed by depression and motor fluctuation.
Severe illness, higher levels of depression, and motor fluctuation are independent factors influencing patients’ beliefs regarding medication necessity. Therefore, these characteristics should be considered in medication belief assessment and interventions for PD patients.
