Objectives: The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) is a framework providing information on disability and health. Physical activity's behavior is complex and affected by various factors. We aimed to examine the ICF domains in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients; to compare them in sedentary and non-sedentary PD patients and their association with activity level.
