Parkinson's Movement

handwriting (micrographia)

The writing was done on a regular piece of paper that was placed on an electronic tablet, using a special pen with pressure- sensitive sensors that were activated upon hitting the writing surface. A computerized analysis of the results compared a number of parameters: writing form (length, width and height of the letters), time required and pressure exerted.

Hi RoyProp,

An interesting article. The problem with my handwriting was the reason I first went to my doctor - and it was only after some months and many tests that I was diagnosed with PD. Miicrographia is still my major symptom but I am reluctant to start taking more meds and cope by using technology - thank God for iphones and laptops!

Best wishes,
