      Research says that treadmill training with continuously varying surface inclines improves gait disturbances, particularly walking speed, in patients with Parkinson’s. Find out more here.

      Do you currently do any training on a treadmill? Is incline walking a part of your program?

      I enjoy treadmill in the gym. I usually set 5%, 5 km/h, 30 minutes, once a week. The big advantege for me is also that you can put a tablet or a smartphone in front of you, so you don’t get bored. I enjoyed so much that I am planning to buy a treadmill to use at home.

        Thanks for sharing, Claudio. What do you like to watch when you’re walking? You also mentioned you have a “portfolio” of exercises. What other physical activities do you do?

      That is fantastic Claudio!  You are motivated, that is half the battle.  Do you think you will do it more than once/week if you get your own treadmill at home?

      I hope so, though treadmill (an aerobic exercise surely good for maintaining good gait amplitude and balance) is something I use more in winter and is one of several items I have in my “portfolio of physical activities exercises” that I use, in order to remain motivated.
