  1. PF: Physical Functioning, which is one of the subscales of SF-36. PF-score can range between 0-100.
  2. UPDRS: Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale. Part II: ADL, where the score can range between 0-52. Part III: motor examination. The total score can range between 0-108 points. Higher UPDRS-scores denote more severe impairments or motor symptoms.
