The following sequences of two single movements were examined in 10 patients with Parkinson's disease and compared with the performance of 9 normal subjects of similar age. Isometric opposition of thumb and fingers to a force of 30 N ('squeeze'), followed by isotonic elbow flexion ('flex') through 15 degrees with the same arm. 'Squeeze' with the left hand followed by 'flex' with the right elbow. Isotonic opposition of thumb and fingers ('cut') through 90 degrees followed by isotonic 'flex' with… CONTINUE READING
