The rotation of a limb round an imaginary axis, so as to describe a conical surface.
circular movement of limb about a joint.
a movement at a synovial joint in which the distal end of a bone moves in a circle while the proximal end remains relatively stable
The swing of a limb in such a manner that it describes a cone- shaped figure.
The circular motion of a limb that is created when the movements of flexion, extension, abduction, and adduction are sequentially performed.
A movement at a synovial joint in which the distal end of the bone describes a circle but the shaft does not rotate.
a circular movement of a limb or eye
see Terms of Movement
A pattern of moving the legs in which the person swings the upper leg widely at the hip. It is usually caused by partial paralysis or spasticity of the limb.
a movement in which the limb describes a cone. It is not a primary movement, but in fact, a sequence of flexion, abduction, extension and adduction.
The circular movement of a limb. May be active or passive
The active or passive circular movement of a limb
circular movement (combining flexion, extension, adduction, and abduction) with no shaft rotation
The movement of a body part so that its end follows a circular pathway.
The act of moving the body, with or without apparatus, in a full circle with forward and backward flexion of the trunk and one hand leading the other to make a small circle in front of the body or a large circle around the body and overhead.
Movement of a limb or extremity so that the distal end describes a circle while the proximal end remains fixed
