German term or phrase: untermittellebhaft
in a neurological medical case report
"BSR und PSR seitengleich untermittellebhaft auslösbar, ASR rechts mittellebhaft auslösbar, links fehlend."

Any suggestions for "untermittellebhaft" and "mittellebhaft"?

Many thanks!

"present in the lower half of the normal range"
Explanation:
For a classification of deep tendon reflexes, see reference below.
For a "less than average, but not obviously pathologic" reflex as stated with "untermittellebhaft", one of the classifications gives "present in the lower half of the normal range", and the other one "present, but depressed".
