Polydimethylsiloxane Product liability A silicone used for the elastomeric capsule and gel filler of breast implants; silicone elastomers are constructed of PDMS high MW–500,000 to 700,000 kD polymers treated with fumed silica particles and highly cross-linked to ↑ consistency of final product. See Breast implant.

Peabody Developmental Motor Scales

(pē'bŏd″ē, pē′bĭ-dē″),


A standardized performance test of gross and fine motor development for infants and children. The PDMS is suitable for newborns, infants, and children up to 6 years of age. Subtests include reflexes, stationary, locomotion, object manipulation, grasping, and visual-motor manipulation. The PDMS-2 includes both subtests and training and remediation programs.
