MONTEIRO, Elren Passos et al. Biomechanical aspects of locomotion people with Parkinson's disease: review study. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Esporte [online]. 2017, vol.39, n.4, pp.450-457. ISSN 0101-3289.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rbce.2016.07.003.

The purpose of this review was to analyze the biomechanical aspects of walking in individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD), as well as to examine the effects of intervention on gait pattern of PD. We carried out a bibliographic search on electronic databases SciELO and PubMed, using the following words: human locomotion, biomechanics, pathologic gait e Parkinson's disease, in national and international scientific journals. The main alterations on walking biomechanics are related to spatiotemporal parameters, lower stride length and dynamical stability, as well as reduced electromyographic activation on propulsion muscles and lower self-selected speed. These outcomes seem to be important targets in walking training protocols for rehabilitation of gait in PD.

Palavras-chave : Kinematic; Electromyography; Pathologic gait; Parkinsonism.
