Totem's ergonomics has always been present in the development of the toy, due to it is addressed to children with visual impairment, it must have measures and an easy way to grab and manipulate. Therefore, for Totem measures have been studied anthropometric hand's dimensions of children of 4 to 6 years.

 

Regarding the technical conditions of the toy, the material chosen it is the Basswood, due to its clear finish, hardness, absence of knots, texture, ease of turning and little impact on the environment. The manufacturing process, on the other hand, consists mainly turning and drilling. All parts are machined in the same way and with the same measures, which with the use of the copier the process, the manufacturing time and labour decreases considerably.
