AbstractThe aim of this study is to assess quantitatively the effects of a computer-assisted system (ARMEO Spring system) to improve upper extremity function in hemiplegic children due to Cerebral Palsy (CP), by means of clinical-functional scales and upper limb kinematics. Twenty-one children with hemiplegia were clinically assessed with Quality of Upper Extremities Skills Test and Melbourne Assessment and instrumentally by 3D movement analysis during reaching task. Data were collected before and after 4  weeks of treatment with the ARMEO Spring system. A control group of 15 healthy children was included as reference...

Such techniques work well for adults, however they are not effective for infants as wearing such sensors or markers may cause discomfort to them, affecting their natural movements. This paper presents a method to help the clinicians for the early detection of movement disorders in infants. The proposed method is marker-less and does not use any wearable sensors which ma...
