Motion sensor – potential for autism diagnosis and treatment?

http://www.frontiersin.org/Integrative_Neuroscience/researchtopics/Attism_The_Movement_Perspectiv/801

Rutgers and Indiana University researchers have developed a motion sensor that they claim can help diagnose and treat autism.

A movement tracker is attached to the individual, which senses “systemic signatures,” measuring each person’s movement as they respond to various screen images from a computer program showing 240 images a second.  This analyzes the importance of changes in movement and movement sensing, enabling the identification of stable capabilities in each individual, and highlights the impairments of a person’s movement system.  The screening tool can measure tiny fluctuations, determining exactly how an individual’s movement differs to that of a more typically developing child or adult.

The researchers claim that their work could potentially be used as an early therapeutic tool, helping autistic children learn and communicate more effectively.

    Is it only me or does it look like a few of these comments look like they are written by
    brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing at other sites, I

    appreciate you taking the time and energy to
    put this content together. I once again find myself personally spending a
    significant amount of time both reading and commenting.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion,
    if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot
    more useful than ever before.
