    Within the framework of the project, four (4) functional prototypes were designed, which, due to their versatility in terms of their manufacturing possibilities with low technology processes and low cost materials, have allowed the learning processes of crawling, The development of fine motor skills and the cross pattern, important techniques, as they allow children with IMOC to achieve high degrees of autonomy in the performance of activities of daily living. For the development of the project the authors used a combination of the Systemic Model of Analysis PSD-Built Environment and the approaches of Universal Design and User-Centered Design that proposes in the first instance to determine the profile of the user and establish their anatomical, biomechanical, anthropometric, Cognitive and socio-cultural.

During this process, functional validation, usability and safety tests were developed.
