Upsee is mobility harness designed to allow children with motor impairment to stand and move with the help of an adult. It allows children with special needs to experience upright movement like anyone else.
Some have been able to stand and hug their little brother or sister for the first time. Some have waved at neighbours on their first ever walk along their own street. And some crossed the playground hand-in-hand with their best friend for the very first time.
"Cove rockin' hard and strutting her stuff in her Upsee!"
"Some inventions really make lives better!"
"Arlie loves the freedom it gives her. We are learning to walk and the Upsee has been such a blessing!"
"My baby walked with me for the first time today"
Upsee makes play and participation possible right now. It creates the possibility of social and emotional development by letting children interact with their peers at eye-level.
Upsee can be used to work on a variety of mobility and ability skills, from weight-bearing and walking to improving head control.
When your child is motivated to explore and move and weight-bear, it creates a real possibility for long-term development.
Leading therapists endorse Upsee because it creates so many possibilities. It can be used for fun and play around the home or with your child's therapist during therapy sessions.
Available in 4 sizes: XS for ages 1 & 2 (Purple or Green) S, M, L for ages 3 and up (Blue or Pink).
One standard size: 24”-42” (60cm-106cm) The childs harness attaches to the adult waist belt.
The infant sandal comes with the XS harness. The standard sandal will be included with S, M & L harness.

Customer CommentWe bought a small, pink Upsee and it is great for my girl who just turned 2 and is roughly 24 lbs. She loves this! And so do I. I am so glad we get to experience walking this way together! She gets to see things from an upright, standing position, which would have been impossible without this equipment.... We bought a small, pink Upsee and it is great for my girl who just turned 2 and is roughly 24 lbs. She loves this! And so do I. I am so glad we get to experience walking this way together! She gets to see things from an upright, standing position, which would have been impossible without this equipment. She can't stand and has very low muscle tone, holding her up like that would be very tiring. But the harness gives her enough support to stand and walk, without getting uncomfortable. IVery well made sturdy jeans material with soft edges and interior, so nothing is rough on her arm pits or legs. We love it!
Customer CommentIt's a great product for my niece who has cp. The issue I have is personal to me. Although I am tall enough to use the harness with my niece, my waist is too small. I wish I could enjoy this gift with her, but there's no way to really tighten the belt enough to safely walk with her. My brother uses it... It's a great product for my niece who has cp. The issue I have is personal to me. Although I am tall enough to use the harness with my niece, my waist is too small. I wish I could enjoy this gift with her, but there's no way to really tighten the belt enough to safely walk with her. My brother uses it because he's on the chunkier side. All that really matters is that my niece gets to enjoy walking for the first time, but I want to enjoy experiences like those with her. I know it's selfish, but it's how I feel.
Customer CommentThe way my daughter smiles and is just in “awe” when she is in the Upsee melts my Mama heart in ways I can’t even truly explain! If your child is unable to stand or walk…you will understand what a GIFT this truly is
