The Adventures of Jetson

Jetsons First CastsAbout Arthrogryposis

Jetson was born with some problems with his limbs. After a few days of tests they have named his condition as Arthrogryposis, which basically means that he has multiple contractures or stiff joints and muscles. He did not fit all the classic signs of Arthrogryposis, though it is just a general label for children born with a range of problems with many possible causes. They may never know why Jetson was born this way. He seems to have got himself caught in a bad position in the womb, and either did not have the muscle strength to move out of it or the room to move.

Check out this nice little video explaining simply what Arthrogryposis is.
