Revue de littérature systématique sur l'analyse 3D du mouvement du membre supérieur chez les enfants de 1 à 5 ans

Abstract : Different methods of motion analysis are found to study upper limb's (UL) movement in scientific literature. However, researches are usually made for adults or school children. No consensus exist for the assessment of UL with 3D motion analysis in pre-schooled children. Purpose: The aim was to report 3D motion analysis protocols to assess upper limbs' movement in children aged between 1 and 5 years old. Methods : articles were selected from PubMed research database until March 2021. Included studies reported data on children aged between 1 and 5 years old, using an optoelectronic system and from only upper limbs' analysis. Newly created studies quality scales were used. Data on analysis system, protocols, parameters (temporospatial, kinematic, etc.) were reported. Typically developing children and children with UL impairments were compared. Reliability and validity of protocols were explored. Results : 25 articles were included: 3 on children with Cerebral palsy, 3 on Autism Spectrum Disorder, 17 on typically developing and 2 on born preterm. Many protocols and optoelectronics systems appeared, adapted with children's ages but a same structure of the method was found. Reliability and validity were found only in two articles. Differences were found on pathologies only about characteristics of movement. Conclusion : to conclude, various 3D protocols were described in 4 different population of children to explore UL movement in pre-school children. It would help to create a reference-based protocol. A 3D UL protocols in children between 1 and 5 years will serve to follow the children's development, to adjust medical care and to help diagnosis.
