Reflex - Hoffmann's reflex - Netflix

In medicine, Hoffmann's reflex, (Hoffmann's sign ,sometimes simply “Hoffmann's”) is a finding elicited by a reflex test which can help verify the presence or absence of issues arising from the corticospinal tract. It is named after neurologist Johann Hoffmann. Sometimes referred to as the finger flexor reflex, Hoffmann's sign is a finding elicited by a reflex action which verifies the presence – or absence – of problems in the corticospinal tract, including myelopathy. Usually considered a pathological reflex in a clinical setting, the Hoffmann's reflex has also been used as a measure of spinal reflex processing (adaptation) in response to exercise training.

Reflex - Interpretations - Netflix

A positive Hoffmann’s reflex and finger jerks suggest hypertonia, but can occur in healthy individuals, and are not useful signs in isolation. In cerebellar diseases, the reflexes may be pendular, and muscle contraction and relaxation tend to be slow, but these are not sensitive or specific to cerebellar signs.
