In an effort to aid Charlie's mobility, my husband and I have invested a great deal of time and money in procuring all sorts of adaptive equipment for our son. Charlie has a wheelchair, a gait trainer and an eclectic assortment of leg braces. But we're really excited about our latest purchase - a simple but genius device called the Upsee. The Upsee is a walking harness designed to help non-ambulatory kids ket up on their feet.
For the past week, Charlie, my husband and I have all been learning how to use the Upsee. Charlie was apprehensive at first, but after a few attempts, he was off to the races. I cannot express my glee and delight at seeing my gorgeous boy upright and meeting the world head-on. This new piece of equipment is a game changer for Charlie and for our family.
