Patients in the initial stages of Parkinson's disease shall workout regularly for 6 months at home to get positive effect comparable to that of conventional Parkinson's medication. According to the paper published in the journal, 'The Lancet Neurology,' the Park-in-Shape study, funded by ZonMW (Netherlands Organization for Health Research and Development), tested an innovative solution for this challenge. The participants were divided into two groups. Both groups had a motivational app at their disposal, which offered the participants rewards for exercising.
The fact that this cycling exercise can take place entirely at home is a major advantage for patients, as this greatly enhances the feasibility of the treatment.
