Intention Tremor

As one can appreciate in this video, this middle-aged man has right-sided intention tremor. The right index finger shows exaggerated tremor when approaching the target, i.e. his nose and physician’s finger. Please note that the examiner should place his finger at around one arm’s length from the patient. This is so that the patient could fully extend his upper limb in order to accurately elicit the clinical sign.
