The non-profit Association “Un Gancio al Parkinson” was founded in 2018: at the moment it is the only organization conducting studies and obtaining fantastic results in improving the quality of life of people living with Parkinson.
The project also includes:
As studies have shown, exercise for Parkinson’s patients needs to be intense and has a neuroprotective effect.
The first study started in Italy by “Un Gancio Al Parkinson” in 2019, was conducted on 15 patients, with pre and post treatment tests.
Our non-profit Association “Un Gancio al Parkinson” (literally translated: “A Hook To Parkinson's”), aims to improve the quality of life of those living with Parkinson's disease by using training similar to boxing and study the long-term effects of such activity. The results have been extremely positive, showing improvement in all parameters, encouraging us to continue the program and welcoming more and more patients.
What Comes Next
In 2020 fall, the number of participants has grown exponentially and we are aiming to start training and study as soon as possible – in strict adherence to Italian Covid-19 regulations.
