Abstract: Aim: To validate the Posturo-Locomotor-Manual (PLM) test, an objective movement measurement system designed to measure movement disability in patients with Parkinsonism. Method: The reliability of the PLM test was determined in a test-retest procedure performed in 37 healthy controls (Study III). Correlations between the PLM test and clinical ratings with the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale motor section (UPDRS III) were investigated in 73 patients with Parkinsonism (47 with Parkinson’... more
