Please elaborate Why people with stroke could move their body faster than the parkinson's patients during exercise but they lack of strength than the latter? Thank

The statement is actually not accurate. The speed of movements in Parkinson and in stroke are highly variable from patient to patient and it is probably not a fair comparison. Hope that helps._________________Michael S. Okun, M.D.
