modified Motor Score (mMS)

a modified version of the Unified Huntington’s Disease Rating Scale (UHDRS) made up of 19 items out of the 31 items on the UHDRS motor score. The modified Motor Score is made up of negative motor features such as bradykinesia, rigidity, hand function, eye movements, and gait. The 12 items not included in the mMS but included in the UHDRS motor score include chorea and dystonia, which may differ in their progression from the 19 items on the mMS.
