Stage 1 no volitional movement initiated
Stage 2 appearance of basic limb synergies, beginning of spasticity
Stage 3 synergies are performed voluntarily
Stage 4 Spasticity begins to decrease, movement patterns not dictated solely by limb synergies
Stage 5 further decrease in spasticity noted, independence from limb synergy patterns
Stage 6 Isolated joint movements are performed with coordination
Stage 7 Normal motor function is restored
Mobility Ability to initiate movement through a functional range of motion
Stability ability to maintain a position or posture through cocontraction and tonic holding around a joint
Controlled mobility ability to move within a weight bearing position or rotate around a long axis
Skill Ability to consistently perform functional tasks and manipulate the environment with normal postural reflex mechanisms and balance reactions
Sensory facilitation techniques (8) approximation, joint compression, icing, light touch, quick stretch, resistance, tapping, traction
Sensory inhibition techniques(5) deep pressure, prolonged stretch, warmth, prolonged cold, carotid reflex
associated reactions an involuntary and automatic movement of a body part as a result of an intentional active or resistive movement in another body part
homolateral synkinesis a flexion pattern of the involved upper extremity facilitates flexion of the involved lower extremity
limb synergies group of muscles that produce a predictable pattern of movement in flexion or extension patterns
Raimiste's phenomenon involved lower extremity will abduct/adduct with applied resistance to uninvolved lower extremity in the same direction
Souque's phenomenon raising the involved upper extremity above 100 degrees with elbow extension will produce extension and abduction of the fingers

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
