What is Hypotonia?


One reference defines Hypotonia as a state of low muscle tone (the amount of tension or resistance to stretch in a muscle), often involving reduced muscle strength. 

MEDEK is an intervention for the stimulation of gross motor development (i.e. sittings, standing, walking) in infants at risk because of prematurity, an event during pregnancy or labour can be used to treat hypotina and other conditions such as gross motor delays, down syndrome or cerebral palsy.
