(4), a distinct patient with dysarthria-clumsy hand syndrome was illustrated in which the clumsy hand was described as bradykinetic
and the lesion site was subcortical white matter underlying supplementary motor area.
She was bradykinetic
, and swinging while walking was reduced much more in the left than the right side.
J showed some restriction in his movement, but he was not bradykinetic
. The team suspected haloperidol could be causing his stiff movement.
While commonalities exist between the obstacle-crossing behaviors displayed by subjects with PD and CTRL subjects, the crossing behavior demonstrated by the subjects with PD reflects bradykinetic
gait patterning that was not exacerbated by the presence of an obstacle.

rigid syndromes: a retrospective study, J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry.
(1) HD is a progressive autosomal dominant disorder, characterised by involuntary choreiform movements, psychiatric manifestations with cognitive decline and, rarely, a bradykinetic
In NPH patients, the gait is commonly characterized as wide-based, short-stepped, shuffling, and bradykinetic
. These patients have trouble picking up their feet, which makes stairs and curb-walking difficult.
EPS are characterized as either hyperkinetic (excessive movements) or bradykinetic
Patients who presented with tremor were on average age 55 years at onset, compared with patients who presented with bradykinetic
rigidity (age 50 years at onset).
By using these mean values, the bradykinetic
features of daily walking can be successfully quantified [93, 94].
Parkinsonism associated with HIV is described as symmetric and mostly bradykinetic
. Rigidity is also seen, as are early gait and postural instabilities.
In addition, early signs of a movement disorder may be interpreted as tardive dyskinesia, or the patient may develop the bradykinetic
form of HD and , not show significant amounts of chorea.
