Les autres

These athletes have conditions that don’t fall under one of the other impairment categories. “Les autres” is French for “the others.”


Short stature

Reduced standing height due to dwarfism. Such conditions are always congenital.

 


Impaired passive range of movement (PROM)

Reduced range of movement in one or more joints caused by illness or congenital deficiency (for example, arthrogryposisDefinition: A birth defect characterized by joint contractures, meaning a person). However, joint instability (for example, dislocation) and acute conditions of reduced range of movement (for example, arthritis) are typically excluded.
