For children with motor impairments, the Upsee opens an unexplored world.
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.
They are just little steps – but they mean the world to someone.
Upsee is made up of three parts and the patented design uses durable, machine-washable and breathable fabrics so you and your child find it comfortable, reliable and easy to clean.
Every Upsee Kit comes with the following components:
(XS) Available in Purple or Green - suitable for toddlers and small children between the ages of 1 and 2. (S, M, L) Available in Blue or Pink - suitable for toddlers and small children from ages 3 and up.
Check out our sizing guide for more information to ensure you get the perfect fit for your child.
The adult waist belt is made from durable, machine- washable and breathable fabric.
It comes in one standard adjustable size. It adjusts from 24”- 42” (60cm – 106cm).
The Upsee sandals are stylish, durable and easy to clean. The standard sandal comes with sizes (S, M, L) and the infant sandals come with the XS harness.
The sandal extension straps are great if you wear bulky shoes or have larger feet. The extension straps can be attached to the current sandal straps through a popper fixture.

Please select your harness size carefully.
We want you to have a great experience with your Upsee and ensure you select the correct size for your child. We found during our trials that 90% of harnesses were suitable for the children based on their age.
Chest circumference was the next best dimension for accuracy and suitability. Children’s sizes vary just like adults and we base our dimensions on the average European child for the ages indicated. Please ensure you measure your child and check the dimensions against the Upsee sizing chart.
Where you child's dimensions do not fall neatly into one particular harness size, for example, if you child is tall and thin for their age or if they wear a body brace we recommend you choose the harness size relating to chest circumference. Please take note of the maximum user weights applicable for each size of harness. The Upsee has not been tested beyond this weight capacity.
If you are in any doubt about your child’s or your own ability to use the Upsee, please consult your therapist.
