Researchers hypothesize that independent mobility affects the development of cognitive function in infants and young children. In our experimental research, typically developing precrawling infants were randomly assigned to a robotic mobility or a nonmobile condition. Preliminary results showed that limited experience with independent mobility significantly impacted cognitive development in the mobility group, supporting the need for early mobility aids for infants with motor impairment.
