Medical Mnemonics – Parkinson’s Disease


It’s Medical Mnemonics Monday! Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that, in the early stages, is characterized by mild signs that are often missed. These signs can be remembered by the mnemonic “SMART”
  • S = Shuffling-Gait
  • M = Mask-like Face
  • A = Akinesia
  • R = Rigidity
  • T = Tremor
You can see a list of our previous Medical Mnemonics here.
