This is an ergonomic brake lever designed for small hands of children. The brake lever is positioned closer to the handlebar grip and remains parallel to the handlebar grip during the braking action due to a rotation axis parallel to the handlebar. The force of every finger is applied with the same and maximum ratio all through the braking movement, which is totally different from a classic brake lever. The movement to brake is natural and simple just like closing your hand. The lever also uses a new cable tension adjustment system. With this product children brake far easier and with more control than compared to a classic lever.

This seems to be a good approach to finding a practical solution for children's hands.
