Table 3 Outcomes and instruments

From: Can Samba and Forró Brazilian rhythmic dance be more effective than walking in improving functional mobility and spatiotemporal gait parameters in patients with Parkinson’s disease?

Outcomes Instruments
FUNCTIONAL MOBILITY SSS and FS Timed Up and Go(TUG) test
GAIT ANALYSIS Spatio-temporal gait parameters: SSS, FS, SF. StT, SwT, SL AND DSP Gait Kinematic analysis using with a synchronized system composed of six infrared cameras (BTS SMART DX 7000 System) with resolution of 1 Megapixel, accuracy < 0.3 mm (calibration volume of 4 × 3 × 3 m), acquisition rate of 100 Hz, synchronized with one Digital videocamera (BTS eVIXTA) 1.9 Megapixel with acquisition rate up to 100 Hz [33]
  1. Note: SSS Self-selected speed, FS Fast speed, SF step frequency, StT stance time, SwT swing time, SL step length and DSP double support phase
