Positions - Ventral Suspension
The baby is placed in the prone position, suspended in the air by the hand placed under the chest. The babys head position, back and extremities are observed. The head should stay in the same plane as the back. The back should show some resistance to gravity and not be simply draped over the hand on the chest. The extremities should maintain some flexion tone and not dangle in extension. Ventral suspension is a very good way to assess a babys neck and trunk tone.
