A new jumpsuit is fitted with sensors that can track and classify an infant’s posture and movements1.
The device could be used to screen infants for movement issues stemming from conditions such as autism.
With caregivers present, the researchers prompted the infants to move through a series of movements commonly tested during a neurological exam.
Three of the researchers independently reviewed the video to classify the infants’ postures and movements second by second.
The algorithm classifies the infants’ postures and movements as well as the researchers do.
