Bispebjerg Hospital
Danish Parkinson Association
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Martin Hoyer Rose, University of Copenhagen
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01446549
First received: September 29, 2011
Last updated: September 22, 2013
Last verified: September 2013
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is (1) to provide quantitative information of the motor manifestations of Parkinson's disease and (2) to quantify the effect of high intensive antigravity locomotor exercise or Deep Brain Stimulation implantations in Parkinson's disease.

Condition Intervention
Parkinson's Disease Other: High intensive antigravity locomotor exercise Procedure: Deep Brain Stimulation

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Quantitative Modeling of Motor Performance in Parkinson's Disease After High Intensive Antigravity Locomotor Exercise or Deep Brain Stimulation

Further study details as provided by Martin Hoyer Rose, University of Copenhagen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Isometric Tremor Approximate Entropy [ Time Frame: Change from baseline up to 16 weeks ]
    Approximate Entropy is a metric. When used to quantify isometric tremor irregularity, information of dominant/pathological CNS oscillators can be obtained.


Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: July 2010
Study Completion Date: September 2013
Primary Completion Date: September 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Deep Brain Stimulation Procedure: Deep Brain Stimulation
Deep Brain Stimulation implantation
Experimental: Locomotor Exercise Other: High intensive antigravity locomotor exercise
High intensive antigravity locomotor exercise, 3 sessions/week, for 8 weeks.
