Clinical Question

How does positioning affect the development of premature infants?

Clinical Bottom Line

Correct body positioning can likely prevent physical and neurological abnormalities in preterm infants (Vaivre-Douret & Golse, 2007). More research needs to be done in this area to define the best positioning methods for the best developmental outcomes.
