This study was aimed at determining the effects of rhythmic visual cueing under changing visual conditions on stride frequency in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD; n=21) and healthy age matched controls (n=7) while walking at different speeds on a treadmill. Stride frequency and stride length in patients with PD as well as controls were not rigidly coupled to walking speed and could be manipulated with walking speed as well as by using spatial and temporal rhythmic visual cues.
