Spanish term or phrase: síndrome de inmovilidad
Hi to all you Kudozers out there!

Spanish Spanish for UK English, if that's relevant.

This is taken from a mongraph written primarily for patients or the general public about Alzheimer's disease (AD).
The phrase is taken from a section explain the chronic complications associated with AD.

I've seen that "immobility syndrome" exists (a few thousand hits), but as an ICD code which seems to refer to "paraplegic immobility syndrome", i.e., damage to the spinal cord rather than resulting from Alzheimer's, a neurodegenerative disease affecting the brain. Other occurrences of "immobility syndrome" appear to be from non-native authors.

Is there an equivalent in English?

"En fases severas, la principal complicación es la inmovilidad y sus complicaciones asociadas (síndrome de inmovilidad)."

Asker: Hi Taña, Thanks for your input, I think motor dysfunction is more along the lines of jittery, uncontrolled and/or very slow movements (it's described earlier in my text), a stage preceding all out immobility. Thanks again.
