    In laymans terms, cardiovascular output is increase in heart rate and what we typically measure when referring to intensity. Motor output is your cortical drive to the periphery, so how much effort is required to complete a functional task. In Parkinson’s, typically the scale and effort is dampened. Functional movement can be achieved but greater levels of ‘effort’ and motor output are required. Point of this question is to highlight there is 1) a difference and 2) what that difference is.
