[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to investigated the factors that affect toe grip strength patients with Parkinsonʼs in patients with Parkinsonʼs disease. [Subjects and Methods] The study included 19 patients with Parkinsonʼs disease, who resided at home. Their toe grip strength, toe-curl ability, and the foot-arch height were measured. Multiple regression analysis was performed with toe grip strength as the dependent variable and height, disease duration and toe-curl ability which was significantly Correlation coefficient to identify factors associated with toe grip strength. [Results] Multiple regression analysis showed that toe-curl ability and disease duration could predict toe grip strength in the resulting model. [Conclusion] The results of this study suggest that high toe-curl ability and short disease duration are associated with greater toe grip strength.
