DD SIG: CSM 2022 Poster Award: Differences in Spatiotemporal Gait Characteristics between Freezing of Gait Subtypes in Parkinson’s Disease – with Jason Longhurst

In this episode, we highlight one of the winners of our poster awards at CSM 2022. Jason Longhurst talks to Katy McGraw about his research on gait characteristics in people with PD. His research looks at data from people without freezing, people with freezing on initiation, and people with non-initiation-type freezing. He discusses the role of gait variability in clinical presentation and expands on how this research might inform PT intervention and make interventions more specific to patients with different presentations in the future.
