The feasibility of smart-phones in the early detection of cerebral palsy
Dr Alicia Spittle
This project will develop a smart-phone application (app) that can be used to assess the quality of infants' movements using the General Movements assessment, the most valid and reliable method for detecting infants at risk of cerebral palsy (CP) in the first 3 months of life. We will test the feasibility of the app in approximately 500 children born preterm or with hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy.
