Flexion synergy patterns stroke involve movements: External rotation the shoulder Flexion the elbow Supination the forearm other words, you to move affected arm, shoulder raise, elbow contract, your wrist turn your palm faces up.
Flexor synergy, known spasticity, refers the muscle "drawing" "pulling in", turn making muscle a limb feel stiff, tight, immovable. most common areas affected flexor synergy elbow flexion paired shoulder internal rotation, forearm supination, grasp.
In arms, flexor synergy refers to: shoulder abduction (raising arm the side) elbow flexion supination (palm facing upwards) wrist finger flexion extensor synergy the arm involves of opposite movements, including: shoulder adduction (reaching inward) elbow extension pronation (palm facing downward)
Obligatory synergy patterns observed a patient to a minimal voluntary movement, as result stimulated reflexes.  flexion synergy the upper extremity includes scapular retraction elevation, shoulder abduction external rotation, elbow flexion, forearm supination, wrist finger flexion. 
Flexor movement tone be elicited involved arm the patient attempts flex leg leg flexion resisted. reaction called homolateral synkinesis. Souque's Phenomenon - Increased tone involved arm horizontal evokes extension abduction fingers. References ↑ Scott AD.
Based pre-therapy UE flexor synergy scores, participants categorized mild (10-12 points), moderate (6-9 points), severe (0-5 points) impairment classes. Results: the robotic group, outcome measures improved therapy patients moderate severe impairment.

A flexor synergy when hip, knee, ankle flex the time (visualize drawing knee your chest). extensor synergy when three joints extend (picture ballerina up his/her tippy toe). Um, the fact and are trying do ballet 😫Yeah, HUGE problem.
The first, flexor synergy, includes external rotation the shoulder, flexion the elbow, supination the forearm. second, extensor synergy, includes internal rotation the shoulder elbow extension pronation the forearm.
The Brunnstrom Approach sets a sequence stages recovery hemiplegia a stroke.It developed the Swedish physical therapist Signe Brunnström, emphasises synergic pattern movement develops recovery. approach encourages development flexor extensor synergies early recovery, the intention synergic activation muscles .
