Computer-based physical therapy games can help people with Parkinson's disease improve their balance and gait, a new study has found. For the investigation, Red Hill Studios developers designed exercises that allow participants to use their body as a game controller. More than half the subjects showed some improvement in walking speed, balance and stride length, investigators found. The University of California at San Francisco School of Nursing led the study, which covered three months.
