Abstract

Background: Regular physical activity is of great relevance in Parkinson’s disease. As part of the project “Individualized training program for Parkinson’s disease patients” (ParkProTrain), a tablet-based program was developed to support individual self-training. It has been tested over a period of 9 months in domestic settings. Patients were asked about the feasibility of use and satisfaction. Methods: Patients who used the program at home following inpatient Parkinson’s complex treatment (PCT) were interviewed twice (9 and 36 weeks after PCT). Results: The program helped patients to stay motivated throughout the interventional period. It provided them with both structure and flexibility to develop their own training routine. The following were named as positive aspects (success factors), including: the introductory seminars in the clinic, the close supervision during the interventional period, the soundness and Parkinson’s specificity, the feasibility and manageability of the program and the individualized training plans; however, patients also provided information on how the program could still be optimized (barriers). Discussion: The program has already successfully implemented a number of aspects that promote activity. Further recommendations were derived for future use, to which more attention should be paid_ Parkinson’s specificity and individualization of the program, flexible training in terms of location and time, close and personal support throughout the study period and the technique should be designed to be easy to learn and manage.
