  • Summary of replies: Infant crawling

    Dear List Members,

    I'm sure Mr. Thompson can put together a fantastic documentary on infant
    crawling based on your helpful replies. For other interested parties, the
    orginal question is posted below followed by the responses. Thanks again for
    your help.

    Sincerely,
    Ronny

    Dear List Members,

    I've been asked to pass this along on the behalf of Andrew Thompson, researcher
    for BBC Television, London. The BBC is preparing a science documentary on the
    human body and want to devote a section to the biomechanics and ergonomics of
    infant crawling. Unfortunately, they are having difficulties locating centres in
    the US, UK or Canada which have performed such studies. If any of you know, or
    are involved, in such studies and wish to share your ideas/findings with a wide
    audience you may contact Andrew Thompson at the BBC in London -- he would be
    very grateful for any information you could provide.

    Please reply directly to Mr. Thompson at: andrew.thompson@bbc.co.uk

    You may also cc me so that I can send the usual summary of replys to the list.
    Thanks in advance.
    Ronny

    Dear Chris,

    Esther Thelan (Thelen?) who was at Missouri 15 years ago is/was the world
    expert on the analysis of infant crawling.

    Cheers,

    You should definitely contact Esther Thelen at Indiana Univ. She is
    an expert on this topic and would be a great spokesperson for the
    US community of develop. biomechanists. Her email is:

    Dear Ronny and Andrew

    I suggest that you contact my colleague Bennett Bertenthal at the
    University of Virginia:

    bib@virginia.edu

    He and his post-doc Bob Friedland did some studies on infant crawling
    in my lab at Virginia that were published a few years ago.

    Mr Thompson,
    If it is not too far from home, I might draw your attention to
    the unit of Developmental Neurology at the Medical Faculty of the
    University of Groningen , The Netherlands. They have extensive
    experience and facilities for the recording of infant movements.
    Recently they did a study on crawling.
    If you are interested, contact Dr. Mijna Hadders,
    e-mail: m.hadders-algra@med.rug.nl (to be preferred, she
    will often be absent the coming weeks)
    phone: (31) 50 361 4247
