Upsee by Firefly is an innovative new walker designed by a mom for disabled children
Debby Elnatan, whose son Rotem suffers from Cerebral palsy, has designed a unique and wonderful gadget which allows children to experience the world outside of the confines of a wheelchair.
The upright mobility walker attaches a harness to the parent’s waist and a pair of combined shoes allows the child to be secure as they stride along.
Elnatan was inspired to create the device after walking and guiding her son manually; a strenuous and challenging act which left her in discomfort and pain. She took her idea to the next level and the Upsee has become a worldwide success and is now available to buy from Firefly.
