Upsee Product Guide

The Upsee is an extremely popular addition to therapy programmes, allowing therapists to further engage a child in movement exercises through activities of daily living.

 

It also lets children experience the benefits of upright movement, and it creates the possibility of social and emotional development by letting children interact with their peers at eye-level. It helps remove social barriers linked with disability that restricts a child’s level of participation and functioning.

About Upsee

About Upsee

The Upsee can facilitate gradual weight-bearing, standing and walking for young children. It is designed for children with mild-to-moderate needs who already benefit from a standing or walking programme.

The available sizes suit children aged between 1-8 years (approx.) who cannot stand or walk independently. However, some contraindications will apply – please download our Assessment and Prescription Fact Sheet for more details.

The Upsee attaches to both adult and child.

It has three parts:

• Child harness

• Adult belt

• Double sandal

Sizes for each component (automatically allocated based on child’s harness size):

• Child harness – four size options: XSmall, Small, Medium and Large

• Adult belt – comes in one adjustable size

• Double sandal (Infant size allocated to the XSmall harness, Standard size issued with Small, Medium and Large)

The maximum user weight for the child harness is:

• XSmall - 15kg / 33lbs

• Small - 15kg / 33lbs

• Medium - 20Kg / 44lbs

• Large - 25kg / 55lbs
