Proposal titleDevelopment of a new type of advanced early walking shoe.

AbstractThe development of new products that incorporate new concepts in children footwear

especially in toddlers is very difficult for the footwear industry. These early years are

critical for children maturation and none or very little research is being doing in the direct

study of design criteria for children footwear. In this project we propose to apply a new

biomechanical concept: to increase the children balance and performance in order to reduce

the risk of falling and tripping and to increase the movement that children can perform.

Criteria will be developed to assess in the design of young children's footwear with the aim

of improve the balance and performance in order to reduce failing and secure a correct

physical and motor maturation of children. For this purpose factors as ankle support, sole

thickness and geometry, antropometrics, slip characteristics, perception of toe cap and back

part, etc. will be studied. The development of design criteria for the manufacturing of

innovative footwear for toddlers will be achieved.
