A low-cost quantitative structured office measurement of movements in the extremities of people with Parkinson's disease [1,2] was performed on people with Parkinson's disease, multiple system atrophy, and age-matched healthy volunteers. Participants underwent twelve videotaped procedures rated by a trained examiner while connected to four accelerometers [1,2] generating a trace of the three location dimensions expressed as spreadsheets [3,4]. The signals of the five repetitive motion items [1,2] underwent processing to fast Fourier [5] and continuous wavelet transforms [6]. The dataset [7] includes the coding form with scores of the live ratings [1,2], the raw files [3], the converted spreadsheets [4], and the fast Fourier [5] and continuous wavelet transforms [6]. All files are unfiltered. The data also provide findings suitable to compare and contrast with data obtained by investigators applying the same procedure to other populations. Since this is an inexpensive procedure to quantitatively measure motions in Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, this will be a valuable resource to colleagues, particularly in underdeveloped regions with limited budgets. The dataset will serve as a template for other investigations to develop novel techniques to facilitate the diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of Parkinson's disease, other movement disorders, and other nervous and mental conditions. The procedure will provide the basis to obtain objective quantitative measurements of participants in clinical trials of new agents.
