The Firefly Upsee is a mobility device designed to allow children with movement delays to stand and move with the help of an adult. it has a harness that attaches to an adult and allows a child with motor impairment to stand upright and walk with their help.
Before attempting to use the Upsee for therapy or family participation activities, you must be able to answer ‘yes’ to ALL THREE questions below:
Does your child already use a standing or walking frame? (Is your child already in a standing or walking program?)
When standing, are your child’s shoulders below your navel/belly-button? (Your child’s height in relation to you is important for safety)
Can you and your child both stand upright while using the Upsee? (Make sure your body shape doesn’t alter your child’s posture)
