Graphs of percent time in bradykinesia and Clinical Scales. a box (median and 75th percentile) and whiskers (90th percentile) of PTB and PTD levels of controls ( ) and PwP ( ) whose median BKS (mBKS) was either < 23 or ≥ 23 or median DKS (mDKS) was either < 5 or ≥ 5. The upper limit of PTB for controls (PTB = 30%) is shown as a green horizontal dotted line. The upper limit of PTD for controls (PTD = 20%) is shown as a green horizontal dotted line. b each participant’s PTB is plotted against their median BKS ( : PwP with median BKS ≥ 23, : PwP with median BKS < 23 and : control). The vertical red dotted line shows the target range for median BKS (mBKS < 26). The upper limit of PTB for controls (PTB = 30%) is shown as a green horizontal dotted line. The grey shaded region shows subjects whose median BKS were in target (< 26) but had excess PTB (≥ 30%). c a plot of each participant’s PTD plotted against their median DKS ( : PwP with median BKS ≥ 23, ( : PwP with median BKS < 23 and : control). The vertical red dotted line shows the target range for median DKS (mDKS < 7) and the horizontal green line shows PTD = 20%. The grey shaded region shows subjects whose median DKS were in target (< 7) but had excess PTD (≥ 20%). d PTD (Y axis) plotted against PTB (left axis) with each dot representing an individual PwP ( ) or Control ( ). The horizontal dotted green line represents the upper limit for PTD (20%) and the vertical dotted red line, the upper limit of PTB (30%) of controls. The small insert in the upper right represents the four quadrants formed by these lines and the numbers show the percentage of cases in each quadrant
