Both, practice and education in design in Latin American countries such as Colombia, have been centred in stylistic production of forms directed towards accelerated consumption, under the premises of fashion trends. Consequently, different social problems centred in the relation body-device are left behind, especially those from minority groups, like the children population considered disabled, which require an approach from design that addresses not only the operational and functional aspects, but also those linked to an understanding from the intuitive, affective and emotional factors of their surrounding world. This talk presents the results of the project “LÚ: a system for daily life abilities learning and decision making for children with Cerebral Palsy”, carried out by the class of Design for the diverse functionalities from the Faculties of Costume Design and Industrial Design at Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana in Medellín, Colombia.
