Sophie’s first dance experience

Sophie is a five year old little girl who has spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy as a result of an infection whilst in utero. She attends a special school, equine therapy and she has received rehabilitation services since she was three months old. Sophie particularly responds to music, walks and being outside with her family.

Clinical Background

Sophie’s cerebral palsy means that she has global developmental delay and hypertonia, and although her head control is good, she uses a wheelchair for mobility. Sophie’s parents feel that she does not enjoy her wheelchair, and do not like the loss of freedom they feel it represents for her. Keen to give Sophie the best outcomes possible, her parents have engaged with many cognitive, motor and sensory therapies, as well as keeping abreast of technical developments.

Our Approach

The Upsee first came to the attention of Sophie’s parents via social media, and they purchased one for her, so that she could experience upright movement.

The Result

Sophie’s parents report that the Upsee has met their objectives – Sophie enjoys upright movement, she can choose where she wants to walk, and her hands are free for play. They report that she loves to explore, and smiles frequently. As a family, they have been able to dance, go shopping to the supermarket, go to recitals, cook together, and many other activities which were not previously possible. Sophie’s parents use her Upsee as part of her daily therapy, believing it contributes to her motor, cognitive and sensory development. They report positive changes to her muscle tone and trunk control, as well as better enunciation of words.
