None of the above (reduced movement in the lower extremities, increased amplitude
with any movement, flexor/extensor weakness).
Bradykinesia can best be described as
a slowness of movement that occurs diffusely. Bradykinesia encompasses any and all
movements and can be manifest as it progresses with a decrease in amplitude of
movement as well as rhythm of movement. In more severe Parkinsons disease,
bradykinesia can progress to akinesia, in which a paucity of movement and a loss
of tremor and rigidity occur.
