The Posturo-Locomotor-Manual (PLM) test is a standardized automated movement test developed to measure hypokinetic movements in patients with Parkinsonism. Our hypotheses were that the PLM movement time (MT) correlates with the Unified Parkinson's disease rating scale (UPDRS III) motor section, and that the components of the PLM test correlate… CONTINUE READING
