Research looking to improve movement through exercise for people with Parkinson's and MS
US research is currently in clinical trials with an experimental digital therapy which uses sensors, music and software to provide more options for interventions to improve walking. The technology syncs with movement through syncopated beats.
MSWA funded research from Murdoch University is currently embarking on a similar study that is looking at the impact of music and walking. With an app designed as a rehabilitation tool for MS, this study is hoping to gauge how auditory cues and music impact walking patterns and motivation to exercise.
