Definition: A shape quality inhering in a bearer by virtue of the bearer's being twisted or turned. Reference: freedictionary.com
Comment: The word "torsion" has multiple different meanings in different context (e.g. the act of twisting or the morphology of the digestive tract in gastropods). This term refers purely to the resulting shape and is not to be used in the engineering and mechanics sense of torsion.
Synonym: twisted

Note: kinked PATO:0001798(synonym twisted) is similar to 'torsioned', but it is different in that something that is kinked has sharp twists or turns.
