Motor and Gait
The 3-level classification of parkinsonism is based on the number of parkinsonian signs present. A trained nurse clinician administers a 26-item modified version of the motor portion of the United Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (mUPDRS) to calculate the presence of 4 parkinsonian signs: bradykinesia, gait, rigidity, and tremor. See global parkinsonian summary score for assessment of parkinsonian signs.
The following 3-level classification of parkinsonism is based on the number of signs present:
|Value||Coding||Number of parkinsonian signs present|
|0||No parkinsonism||0 signs|
|1||Possible parkinsonism||1 sign|
