This observational research study is designed to assess the feasibility of developing a new software application that can be used in the home using a commercially available camera to measure abnormal body movements associated with Parkinson's disease (PD). The goal of this study is to validate the motor outcomes derived from a consumer camera observing a sub-set of standardized assessment tasks with respect to the reference motion capture system.
