In Colombia there are 300,000 children with cerebral palsy, 70% of whom have no access to rehabilitation therapies.
KitSmile is the first home rehabilitation kit that uses three fundamental positions to generate stimulation, contribute in a sustained way to children's motor and cognitive development, and improve their quality of life and that of their family.
This kit is based on a Spanish neurodevelopment method used for over 40 years in disabled people. It features different modules in organic shapes, colors and textures to make it resemble a toy and improve the experience and interaction of the child, their family and their environment.
This company trains the parents to become the main actors in the child's rehabilitation, thus reducing the time they need to devote their care, as the child can now perform different activities unaided.
Tecnologías sin Barreras has managed to integrate three products in one, increasing its functionality and period of use. It enables parents to manage their child's condition through training and support from its specialists; and the kit's innovative design is a fundamental aspect for normalizing the child's disability and generating greater inclusion.
The home rehabilitation model allows the child to enjoy more continuous stimulation. The product is adapted to children aged between 2 and 12 years old, or with a height of between 50 cm and 1.50 cm, meaning the product does not rapidly become obsolete. This business is based on a model of alliances and sponsorships, which means it is also available to help the population with low resources.
