    Abstract: The main purpose of kinetic program integrated in complex medical assistance of PD patients is the improvement of life quality, through amelioration of self-care activities, and possibility of making various activities in stability, balance and coordination conditions. We choose the kinetics techniques according to the clinical form and the gravity of the functional deficit. Taking into consideration the locomotors dysfunctional status, almost patients were included in the second and third evolutional stages. For quantize the results and monitories the patients with assessment of the kinetic program benefits we have use different scales and questionnaires. The age of the patients was over 45 years and more patients were male then women; this aspect confirm the increase frequency of disease in the male subjects. The individual and global clinical motor aspects were been influenced by the kinetic program. The global functional impact upon the individual general state was appreciated with scale FIM scale (Functional Independence Measure). Each patient and the entire studied group had presented an increase of the final motor score; this evolution mode proved the important of the kinetic program in the management of the Parkinsonism patient global state. “The PD patients have not be help” in the quotidian activities performance – is one of the kinetic rules that has be respected by all the family patient members.
