The mobility device that lets children with motor impairment stand and walk with the help of an adult.
I purchased the Upsee last yr & was so anxious to try it out with B. We started slow to see how much weight bearing we could get from him (he does well in a stander). He did some weight bearing but half the time he was not weight bearing so it was putting a lot of pressure on my back & B seemed agitated from discomfort. The thigh straps give him a lot of redness from the pressure due to him not weight bearing as much as we had hoped. We took a break from it, trying to work on better weight bearing before using it again but he grew too tall for it to be used safely. I had such high hopes :(

We received the Upsee to try and blog about for the company. We never expected such an improvement in Oliver’s ability to stand and bear his own weight! When we first started, he showed no interest. Now he is able to initiate his own steps and stand for short periods of time. The device is comfortable to walk with and is easy to strap on just myself. The colors are cute and the sandals and big enough to fit any shoe we decide to walk with.

We absolutely LOVE our UPSEE! It has helped tremendously to with my son’s all around strength throughout his body and allows him to bare his own weight to see which ways of moving and controlling his tone to take his own steps! He gets so proud of himself when he does which is a huge accomplishment for us both. It has made playing, learning and our life more possible <3 Thank You Firefly. Love always, Tiffany & Joey

I wholeheartedly agree with the previous reviews! The Upsee is revolutionary and has been crucial to get B to where she is now with hand-held supported walking. It is very well designed and of superior quality materials. We have so many special memories in our Upsee

The Upsee… will always hold a very special part in our hearts. The first time our child really actively walked was in the Upsee and it has brought our child and family so many family participation opportunities. I’ve found it comfortable and supportive and I only wish it had been around when my child was in his younger years.

We absolutely LOVE the UpSee! Our daughter has very low tone in her trunk and occasionally high tone in her legs. She doesn’t sit or stand alone. The UpSee has really helped her to particpate with other children. She loves to go walking in the neighborhood with it, and she recently spent the weekend playing her first game EVER with another child—kicking a ball back and forth! The UpSee allows her to really engage in a meaningful way. It’s well made too—the buckles are very sturdy and the vest seems very comfortable for my little one to wear.
