Waxy flexibility

Waxy flexibility

Waxy flexibility, also known as cerea flexibilitas, an individual's movements having the feeling of a plastic resistance characterize meaning as if they made the person of wax. This occurs in catatonic schizophrenia, and a person suffering from this condition can have their limbs placed in fixed positions as if the person were in fact made from wax.

Slight even resistance to positioning by the examiner.
