This is the first stage of making a toy which may motivate the child to press. Three mini massagers are fastened on a platform, on top of this is another platform. When the child places his hand on the upper platform he causes the mini massagers to vibrate. The next step is to place a round stick on top of the upper platform and to add some objects so that the child will create a certain sound while pressing forward, another sound while pressing to the left and a third one while pressing to the right. This toy is supposed to give the child a frame of reference for future handling of the joystick of an electric wheelchair or just to develop some ideas of right, left, forward and backward.
