During 2020, TIS started implementing a project in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) in healthcare called SENDD - a system for early detection of potential neurodevelopmental disorders in infants. The project is being developed in cooperation with the Dr. Sabol Polyclinic, and is co-financed by EU funds for research and innovation.
The result of this project will be a unique solution for assessing the quality of spontaneous movements in early infancy for the purpose of detecting and screening infants at high risk of neurodevelopmental abnormalities or expected normal outcome in a group of neuro risky children.
The system is based on artificial intelligence technology, more precisely computer vision for recognizing children's poses, and trained neural networks for concluding the quality of movement, that follow medically proven method and classification of spontaneous movement quality assessment according to prof. M. Hadders-Algra, MD, PhD. The project is also open to the public and can be accessed by all interested parents of children aged 1.5 to 3.5 months with the voluntary provision of a video of the child's fidgeting to assess the quality of spontaneous movements. More details about the project can be found at www.sendd.eu.
In the SENDD project, we include children in the age range of 1.5-3.5 months, optimally 2-3 months of age. If you are interested in participating by voluntarily providing a video of your child’s fidgeting and receiving a free assessment of the quality of spontaneous movements, you should use our SENDD Mobile Application or web application available on www.sendd.eu.
SENDD Mobile Application Main steps:
1. Parent registration step
2. Child data registration
3. Read recording guidelines and recommendations
4. Record you baby’s spontaneous movements/ fidgeting
5. Upload recording
6. Wait Free assessment
