English term or phrase: double-jointed
I know what it means. I just need the dutch word for it. Also, does the word polydexterous have a similar meaning ?
This word is unknown to (online) dict.
maybe it does not exist ?

Dutch translation:DUBBELGELEED (FIG: ELASTISCH - LENIG)
Explanation:
Polydexterous: zeer handig, bedreven

In figuurlijke zin betekent double-jointed eerder "flexibel", dus bij uitbreiding enigszins vergelijkbaar met "zeer bedreven".
