Video Library

The clinical hallmarks of (motor) parkinsonism are shown in this video fragment.

Segments 1-3 display bradykinesia, segment 4 hypokinesia, segment 5 the typical parkinsonian rest tremor, and segment 6 rigidity with the cogwheel phenomenon in various patients suffering from motor parkinsonism. Segment 7 shows the loss of postural reflexes with instability, the phenomena of propulsion (segment 8) and retropulsion (segment 9), and stooped posture (segment 10) in motor parkinsonism (courtesy Erik Wolters).
