A home-based, remotely supervised program of aerobic exercise improves motor scores in patients with Parkinson’s disease, Dutch researchers report.

The study evaluated the effect of home-based high-intensity aerobic exercise on motor signs of Parkinson’s disease in 130 patients with mild disease who were on common treatment regimens.
