Active Comparator: GROUP CONTROL
Participants in the control group only underwent conventional physiotherapy. Conventional therapy includes stretching and strengthening exercises with cane aid, leggings , elastic band and overball for upper and lower limbs , in addition to gait and balance training.

Other: conventional physiotherapy
Experimental: EXPERIMENTAL GROUP
The subjects in the experimental group underwent conventional physiotherapy (The same applied in the control group) associated with virtual reality , performed with the console X -Box Kinect® of Microsoft. Durante the achievement of the virtual reality practice, Kinect and Kinect games Adventures® Dance® demanded the anterior movements players -posterior and lateral , as well as jumps and squats to get rid of the game obstacles. They Kinect Dance® game were all required movements of the previous game more dance . The intervention lasted five weeks , with two weekly sessions lasting 30 minutes to conventional therapy and 30 minutes to virtual reality.
Other: Virtual Reality with X- Box Kinect®
- Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale - Evaluates disease progression [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]Through the UPDRS disease progression was evaluated. Composed of 42 items, divided into four parts: mental activity, behavior and mood ; activities of daily living, motor operation and complications of drug therapy. For this study we evaluated the items : activities of daily living and motor examination on . The score for each item ranges from 0 to 4, and the maximum value indicates greater involvement by the disease and the minimum normality.
- Parkinson's Disease Questionnaire (PDQ-39) - evaluates quality of life [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]The PDQ-39 is a method that evaluates the quality of life (QOL) in patients with PD through a questionnaire self-explanatory and easy to understand. There are 39 items divided into eight categories: mobility; activities of daily living; emotional well-being; social difficulties of PD; social support; cognition; communication and bodily discomfort. The score ranges from 0 (no problem) to 100 (maximum problem), or a low score indicates a better perception of quality of life.
