NTNU PhD defense 1

Two weeks ago Lars Adde defended his PhD entitled Prediction of cerebral palsy in young infants. Computer based assessment of general movements at NTNU in Trondheim. I have contributed to this research through development of the General Movement Toolbox, a variant of my Musical Gestures Toolbox. This toolbox he has used to analyse video material of children with fidgety movements, with the aim of being able to predict cerebral palsy at an early stage. The dissertation is a milestone in Norwegian physiotherapy research, and I am very happy to have been able to contribute.

I haven’t found an electronic version of the PDF, but the papers included can be reached from Google Scholar.
