Patients with Parkinson disease (PD) sometimes have difficulties with walking, such as shuffling, short steps, or freezing. Environmental cues may help resolve some of these problems. We examined the role of the two cues, visual and auditory, as conveyed by a device (specialized goggles) to help these patients with walking. We found that these visual and auditory cues may have a role as generated by an easy-to-use device to improve the gait of people with PD.
