The aim of this paper is to make the analysis the design for electrical infantile stander, focusing primarily on ergonomics that gives users. As a first instance has been information gathering of secondary sources for the collecting background of the current state of the standing devices, mostly based on catalogs of magazines, websites, theses, among others; thus was detected that much of the products offered on the market are static and do not allow independent displacement, was find some exceptions, but the actual access to them, a large segment of the population, was hamper due to their high costs which demand a huge investment. As a result it expects to achieve the proposed low-cost design for a dynamic infantile stander that allows the displacement through an electrical mechanism. Thus get greater autonomy to the user, since the achievement of upright posture, is a psychomotor important milestone for the child, which has important implications for the possibility of visual control, social contact and active integration in the environment. Keywords: child stander; ergonomics; independent displacement.
