AbstractAbstract PDF
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.
