The primary onset of this study is to determine the short and longer term effects of dual task training gait on walking performance when dual tasking in people with Parkinsons disease.. The aim of the study is to analyze the efficacy of dual task training to improve functional gait performance in idiopathic Parkinsons disease subjects. Design and setting: A randomized controlled study design was used to examine the differences in conventional therapeutic exercises and conventional therapeutic exercises with specific external cueing strategies given between two groups. Subjects: A sample of 10 subjects with idiopathic Parkinsons disease was screened using Timed up and go test (TUG Test) and those who scored 24 % less was taken for the study.the subjects were of both genders aged between 50-75 years of age with medically stable patients. They were divided into two groups of control and experimental group.the study was done in Masterskill College of nursing and health. Outcome Measurement: Functional gait performance will be measured using the timed up and Go (TUG) test with added motor and cognitive tasks, participants will be asked to walk as quickly as they safely can under all conditions and will be permitted to use their usual gait aid. Results: Data Analysis of the subjects after dual task training led to a greater improvement in functional walking capacity and step length. The average percentage of improvement in timed up and go test is 53 %. Conclusion: According to this study Dual task training had improved step length and functional walking capacity in idiopathic Parkinsons disease.
