Effect of the combination of automated peripheral mechanical stimulation and physical exercise on aerobic functional capacity and cardiac autonomic control in patients with Parkinson’s disease: a randomized clinical trial protocol

Effect of the combination of automated peripheral mechanical stimulation and physical exercise on aerobic functional capacity and cardiac autonomic control in patients with Parkinson’s disease: a randomized clinical trial protocol
Trials. 2021 Apr 6;22(1):250. doi: 10.1186/s13063-021-05177-w.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Automated peripheral mechanical stimulation (AMPS) has been proposed as a new complementary therapy with potential for improving motor and cardiovascular abnormalities in Parkinson's disease (PD). However, AMPS long-term effects and its combination with physical exercise are unknown. Thus, this study aims to compare the effects of a program of 12 weeks of physical exercise ... read more
