Further study details as provided by Assistance Publique Hopitaux De Marseille:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To prove the predictive value of the " Deltas Brushes " triggered by hand or foot stimulation in correlation with the general movement analysis in the cerebral palsy diagnosis. [ Time Frame: 36 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To prove that the general movement of the preterm increases the predictive value the actual monitoring of the preterm's in the diagnosis of cerebral palsy. [ Time Frame: 36 months ]

Enrollment: 44
Study Start Date: July 2008
Study Completion Date: September 2010
Primary Completion Date: August 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Recording of the movements Recording of the electroencephalogram
Other: Electroencephalogram, recording the movements
Electroencephalogram, recording the movements of the child, RMI, Transfontanel Imaging

Detailed Description:
Compare the technical and the predictive characteristics of the qualitative analysis of the spontaneous motility with those of actual exams of reference diagnosis : magnetic resonance imaging, electroencephalogram and transfontanellar imaging.
