Approximate entropy values demonstrate impaired neuromotor control of spontaneous leg activity in infants with myelomeningocele.

Abstract

PURPOSE One obstacle to providing early intervention to infants with myelomeningocele (MMC) is the challenge of quantifying impaired neuromotor control of movements early in life. METHODS We used the nonlinear analysis tool Approximate Entropy (ApEn) to analyze periodicity and complexity of supine spontaneous lower extremity movements of infants with MMC… (More)
