Children who suffer from neuromuscular diseases often have difficulties walking and moving around. Their diminished mobility affects their social life as well and keeps them from freely enjoying everyday activities like playing with their peers and also inhibits cognitive development. Upsee is an upright mobility device which helps kids with disabilities walk.
Upsee has been designed to allow children with movement delays to stand and move with the help of an adult. It helps the children perform everyday functions much more independently than before. For children and parents, it’s the little things which mean a lot.
Being able to stand upright, hugging and playing with their friends, waving at acquaintances, going to the
playground etc. are some of the everyday things that kids are able to
accomplish with the help of Upsee. Small steps – but they can bring about a
world of change in some one’s life.
The Upsee is suitable for children aged 1 to 8, and supports a maximum weight of
25kg/55lbs. It assists with gradual weight-bearing, standing and
walking with the support of an adult. Upsee enables the kid to participate in play
sessions and group activities which is important for the social and emotional
development of the child.
helps in the total development of the child by improving weight bearing
capabilities, walking and head control. By increasing the child’s
mobility, Upsee helps in increasing the child’s motivation level as well,
consequently affecting his/hers long-term development.
