German term or phrase: Bewegungseffekt
In German medical report on spinal surgery and related matters, in Neurologischer Untersuchungsbefund:
"Fuß- und Zehenheberlähmung funktionell komplett ohne sichtbaren Bewegungseffekt."

I found "Bewegungseffekt" in German sources, but cannot find English equivalent. Would appreciate any help!

indication of movement (or motion)


Explanation:
I think "evidence of movement" is fine too but maybe "indication" leans a little more in the medical direction. Just a thought.
