Abstract

The stimulation of visuomotor skills has a relevant role in the rehabilitation of children with neurological dysfunctions / pathologies. However, the methods of evaluation and intervention for children under the age of 18 months are few systematic and not directed to the problem of each one. For this reason it was important to develop a system that will fill this gap. Therefore, the main purpose of this paper is to present the development process of a tool called RehabVisual - evaluation and stimulation of visuomotor competences. RehabVisual has the objective to promote the evaluation and the stimulations of visuomotor skills in children between the ages of 0 and 18 months. The platform has two sessions: database that records all the clinical information of the child and protocol with stimuli according to the development of the child. This plataform it was realized with physicians and occupations therapists from the Service of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) of the Hospital D. Estefânica of the Hospital Center of Lisbon Central and it was approved by the Portuguese Ethics Committees of this Hospital. The RehabVisual can be used by physicians, occupational therapists, and caregivers and is characterized for being a tool user-friendly, versatile and adaptable to the needs of each child.
