Abstract

The methods of evaluation and intervention related to the visuomotor skills, for children under the age of 18 months with neurological dysfunctions are not systematic and individualized. Hence, the RehabVisual platform was developed. The aim of this article is to present the usability tests applied to the platform validation, as well as describing the application of the platform in the therapy sessions of a baby with a clinical diagnosis of prematurity. The study concludes that the application of the platform allows the treatment to be more individualized and specific to the baby needs through a common method to all service. Through usability tests, it was possible to ascertain that at the level of occupational therapy, this is a useful tool adapted to the needs of its users.
