Definition of Bradykinetic

Bradykinetic: Pertaining to slowed ability to start and continue movements, and impaired ability to adjust the body's position. Bradykinesia can be a symptom of neurological disorders, particularly Parkinson's disease, or a side effect of medications.

The word bradykinetic is logically derived from two Greek roots: bradys, slow + kinesis, movement = slow movement, slow motion, slow moving.
