Abstract:

THIS PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO DEVELOP AND EVALUATE A TECHNIQUEUSING MOTION SIMULATION TO SOOTHE COLICKY INFANTS. THERE ARE THREE MAJOR OBJECTIVES FOR THIS PHASE I PROJECT: (1) TO FURTHER DEVELOP THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE MOTION SIMULATION TREATMENT. THE BASIC PROTOTYPE OF THE VIBRATING MECHANISM HAS BEEN PRODUCED. THEREFORE, THE PROPOSED TASK IS TO DETERMINE THE BEST METHOD OF APPLICATION. THIS WILL PRIMARILY INVOLVE STUDIES OF THE OPTIMAL INTENSITY OF VIBRATION, POSITIONING OF THE VIBRATING UNIT ON THE MATTRESSAND DURATION OF TREATMENT; (2) TO IDENTIFY A DEFINITION OF COLIC THAT WILL PROVIDE CRITERIA FOR SELECTION OF A STUDY POPULATION AND DETERMINE THE MOST EFFECTIVE TREATMENT REGIME. THE SYMPTOMS OF COLIC THAT ARE POTENTIALLY TREATABLE WITH MOTION SIMULATION WILL BE DEFINED; AND (3) TO DEVELOP PROCEDURES THAT WILL RELIABLY ASSESS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE MOTION SIMULATION ON COLIC IN INFANTS. IT IS PROPOSED TO TEST THE MOTION SIMULATOR ON TEN INFANTS DIAGNOSED AS HAVING COLIC.
