Parkinson's disease (PD) patients have an increased gait asymmetry and variability, which is most pronounced in patients with freezing of gait (FOG). We examined if stride time variability and deficits in interlimb coordination between the upper and lower limbs would increase during split-belt locomotion in PD, and particularly so in patients with FOG.
