Other Name: Exergaming
- Gait score [ Time Frame: Day 43 ]Decrease in a quantitative composite gait score consisting of body sway and gait variability in walking challenge conditions (mattress), assessed by VICON-based motion tracking
- Brain networks captured [ Time Frame: Day 43 ]Changes in brain networks captured by specific neuroimaging focussing on brain grey matter volume (VBM), brain fibre tracking (DTI) and functional connectivity of the cerebellum with other brain regions (resting-state connectivity)
- Quantitative movement parameters [ Time Frame: Day 43 ]Set of quantitative movement parameters for complex whole-body movements (gait, stand, fast sequences of goal-directed stepping movements) (VICON-based motion tracking).
- Ataxia severity [ Time Frame: Day 43 ]Clinical ataxia severity according to the Scale for the Assessment and Rating of Ataxia (SARA)
- Daily activity [ Time Frame: Day 43 ]Objectively measured level of daily activity in subjects' real-world settings (body-worn motions sensors; ActivePal®)
- Brain-derived neurotrophic factor [ Time Frame: Day 43 ]Increase of serum brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF)
