So an attempt has been made with an aim to check the feasibility, potential efficacy of DT program on QOL and its transfer to the performance of untrained task. Methodology: 54 subjects diagnosed with idiopathic Parkinson’s disease were conveniently allocated into two groups in a pretest and posttest control group study. After obtaining baseline data of gait speed in DT by 10-meter walk test and QOL by Parkinson’s Disease Questionnaire (PDQ-39) respectively, both the groups received occupational therapy...
