Untersuchung (U) or simply U-checkups, are a series of health examinations specifically designed for infants and children. These checkups are an integral part of the preventive healthcare system for children in Germany.
U-checkups are named U1, U2, U3, U4, and so on, indicating the sequence of the checkups. They are conducted at specific ages to monitor the child's growth, development, and overall health.
The checkups are typically carried out by pediatricians or child healthcare specialists.
