Samenvatting

Preterm infants in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) are continuously monitored for their vital signs, such as heart rate and oxygen saturation. Body motion patterns are documented intermittently by clinical observations. Changing motion patterns in preterm infants are associated with maturation and clinical events such as late-onset sepsis and seizures. However, continuous motion monitoring in the NICU setting is not yet performed. Video-based motion monitoring is a promising method due to its non-contact nature and therefore unobtrusiveness. This study aims to determine the feasibility of simple video-based methods for infant body motion detection. We investigated and compared four methods to detect the motion in videos of infants, using two datasets acquired with different types of cameras. The thermal dataset contains 32 hours of annotated videos from 13 infants in open beds. The RGB dataset contains 9 hours of annotated videos from 5 infants in incubators. The compared methods include background substruction (BS), sparse optical flow (SOF), dense optical flow (DOF), and oriented FAST and rotated BRIEF (ORB). The detection performance and computation time were evaluated by the area under receiver operating curves (AUC) and run time. We conducted experiments to detect motion and gross motion respectively. In the thermal dataset, the best performance of both experiments is achieved by BS with mean (standard deviation) AUCs of 0.86 (0.03) and 0.93 (0.03). In the RGB dataset, SOF outperforms the other methods in both experiments with AUCs of 0.82 (0.10) and 0.91 (0.05). All methods are efficient to be integrated into a camera system when using low-resolution thermal cameras.
