Abstract

Date Presented 4/18/2015

The purpose of this systematic review was to appraise the evidence for the effectiveness of nonnutritional interventions in treating osteopenia of prematurity. The results of a physical activity program with preterm infants are significant, thus affecting occupational therapy intervention in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
