Characterization of the motor performance of newborns in a neonatal unit of tertiary level

Abstract: Results:The age groups of 34-35 and 36-37 weeks showed on average TIMP scores similar to the reference values (p>0.05), while in the age groups of 38-39 weeks and 40-41 weeks TIMP scores were statistically lower than the reference values (p<0.001 and p=0.018, respectively). The 34-35 and 36-37 week groups were rated as average, while the 38-39 and 40-41 week groups were defined as low average. Classifications below average and very below average were not observed. Conclusion:The newborns showed average scores … Show more

“…More research is emerging that gives insight into the impact of the NICU environment and various types of sensory and motor interventions that may be provided in the NICU [12][13][14]. The early initiation of therapeutic supports in the NICU is vital for preterm infant development [13,15,16], as many infants are hospitalized for several months [14]. Current evidence supports: therapeutic activities can occur while the infant is undergoing medical care [17]; outcomes are better when parents are engaged [18]; there are tools available to aid with early identification of developmental impairment and targeted interventions to address those impairments [19]; and neuroprotective strategies can optimize brain development in an unnatural and stressful NICU environment [20,21].…”
