In the last decade, growing attention has been placed on joint hypermobility and related disorders. The new nosology for the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS), identifies 13 different types of EDS, and highlights the need for an updated and more reliable criteria. For the first time management and care guidelines have also been produced for the co-morbidities that can occur within EDS and HSDs.

As part of this work, the terminology of joint hypermobility and related disorders is summarised and a group of hypermobility spectrum disorders is proposed.
