Rescue Project CD Rom for Therapists

Using cueing to improve mobility in Parkinson's Disease:
A CD-Rom for therapists

The Rescue consortium, a research collaboration between Northumbria University (United Kingdom), Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (The Netherlands) and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (Belgium) have developed a CD-Rom as a guide for therapists who want to use cueing to treat gait and gait-related activities in patients with Parkinson's disease. The RESCUE collaboration conducted a clinical trial that has confirmed the use of cueing as an effective treatment in the home situation. In preparation for this trial, an actual cueing treatment method was developed, which is presented on this CD-Rom. As well as evidence-based cueing guidelines, therapists will find cueing instructions and specific exercises, richly linked to illustrative video clips, centred around 12 therapy aims related to improving gait and gait-related activities. The CD-Rom also contains information on disease background and clinical evaluation tools.

A small number of Rescue project CD Roms are still available, over 10 years after completion of the project, for a nominal cost of £8/10 Euros, including postage and packing. An order form can be obtained from the Association of Physiotherapists in Parkinson’s Disease website
