Front Neurol. 2019 Jan 29;10:24.
The aim of the study was to compare performance of patients with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy to perform a virtual task using 3 different interfaces (Kinect, computer Touch Screen and Leap Motion). Motor impairment was measured using MFM and Vignos scale.
The regression analysis revealed that the scores of the Vignos (positively related) and MFM-D2 (inversely related) scales predicted the improvement of performance in the DMD group, while age, MFM-D1, MFM-D3, and MFM total did not.
