Digitomotography in Parkinson’s Disease: A Cross-Sectional and Longitudinal...

Motor symptoms in Parkinson's disease (PD) are usually assessed with semi-quantitative tests such as the Unified PD Rating Scale (UPDRS) which are limited by subjectivity, categorical design, and low sensitivity. Particularly bradykinesia as assessed e.g. with speeded index finger tapping exhibits low...
