Neurologic Exam-Pediatric | 6-month-old | Normal | Motor - Traction
6-month-old - Normal 06 - Motor - Traction: On traction, which is pulling to a sitting position, the baby has good head and trunk control. The head and shoulders are flexed forward and the arms are flexed. The baby actively helps himself to get to the sitting position by pulling with the arms. Also notice that the legs are flexed at the hips and are off the mat as the baby pulls himself to sitting. On being laid back down to the supine position, the baby doesn't flop back, but is able to control the lowering of his head and trunk to the mat.
