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.
Participation and Inclusion
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.
Work on Important Skills
Upsee can be used to work on a variety of mobility and ability skills, from weight-bearing and walking to improving head control.
Motivation and Development
When your child is motivated to explore and move and weight-bear, it creates a real possibility for long-term development.
