Forced, Not Voluntary, Exercise Improves Motor Function in Parkinson’s Disease Patients.

Dynamic high-cadence cycling improves motor symptoms in Parkinson’s disease.

These findings show that dynamic cycling can improve PD motor function and that activation of proprioceptors with a high cadence but variable pattern may be important for motor improvements in PD.
