The purpose of this study is to collect kinematic motion data from subjects with movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease (PD) and essential tremor (ET) to develop and validate algorithms for quantifying motor symptoms such as tremor, bradykinesia (slowed movements), dyskinesias (sudden, involuntary movements), gait, and balance during standardized tasks and/or activities of daily living.
