Smartphone App for Analysis of General Movements in Young Infants


Brief description of study

Analysis of spontaneous movements in young infants from video recordings is recommended as an early medical assessment tool for prediction of cerebral palsy in high-risk infants. Such video recording have previously been performed in follow-up programs at hospitals using semi standardized video set-ups. The research group behind this study develops a smart-phone application that makes it possible for parents to video film their infant spontaneous movements at home, upload and send the video for analysis at the hospital provided by experts. The objectives of the study are to assess the feasibility of the In-Motion app for video recording of infant spontaneous movements, upload and send the video to St. Olavs Hospital in Trondheim, Norway, for assessment, and how parents experience this. 90-120 high-risk infants from Norway, Denmark, Belgium, USA, Great Britain and India will participate. Parents will record their infant spontaneous movements and answer questionnaires. Video quality will be evaluated by experts within the field and their use for computer-based assessment will be evaluated.
