Tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia, PIGD are the main motor manifestations of PD patients.

Motor decline Most patients with DLB and PDD had postural instability gait difficulty (PIGD); tremor dominant and PIGD types evenly distributed in PD group; PIGD significantly associated with increased cognitive decline.
Some of this variability may be accounted for through univariate correlation analysis demonstrating sex, age, HY stage, UPDRS, TUG, PIGD, FOG, and OLS to be significantly correlated with 6MWD (r = -0.67 to 0.47, p < 0.05).
PIGD, OLS, TUG, FOG, HY, and sex were entered into our stepwise multiple regressions, and TUG, OLS, and sex were identified as significant (p < 0.01) independent contributors to 6MWD, explaining approximately 56.6 percent of the variance.
Abbreviations: 6MWD = 6-minute walk distance, FOG = Freezing of Gait, HY = Hoehn and Yahr, OLS = one-leg stance, PD = Parkinson disease, PIGD = Postural Instability and Gait Disorder, SD = standard deviation, TUG = timed up-and-go (test), UPDRS = Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale.
The secondary research purpose was addressed using subgroup analysis within the PD cohort to examine if FP performance differed based on disease severity, age grouping, and PD subtype (TD and PIGD).
Subgroup analyses were performed for the PD cohort based on the PD subtype (PIGD and TD).
Finally, results from a multivariate Cox regression model showed that baseline orofacial burden score [HR = 1.10 (95% CI: 1.01-1.20)] was a stronger predictor of hazard of developing UPDRS-Part III > 28 when compared to baseline PIGD score [1.08 (95% CI: 0.92-1.28)].
Interestingly, the single indicator, orofacial burden, showed more promising results in prediction of PD progression compared to the PIGD score at baseline.
There is a greater motor and functional decline [27], as well as an increased mortality rate, in the PIGD subtype [3, 5].
