The Firefly Upsee gives wheelchair-bound children the chance to walk and stand and is the first product of its kind. The Firefly Upsee will give wheelchair-bound children the opportunity to walk alongside their siblings, play and even dance.

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.
