He also explained that, thanks to the interactive system used on this site, Sensy Magic, the environment of the sessions can be adapted to the needs of the patient, since it regulates light and sound, and the child uses textures, a cube and a seesaw, to stimulate touch, vision, hearing, balance, language, learning and motor skills. In total, the investment for the intervention of the UBR of Ticul was 1.2 million pesos.

Along with the host Ticul mayor, Rafael Gerardo Montalvo Mata, and the head of the Social Development Secretariat (Sedesol), Roger Torres Peniche, the Governor also verified the facilities that received maintenance and remodeling from the UBR, where care is now offered to adults with disabilities, through high quality services, such as physical therapy, electrotherapy and mechanotherapy, since, before, the areas were common for all ages.
