|Bertrand's expression here: "Whoa! I'm standing up!"|
We've had the Upsee for over a week, and I can't say enough good things about the product or the company.
As I see it, Firefly by Leckey, the maker of the Upsee, is the Apple of special needs products. The marketing, branding, and packaging of the Upsee have all been top notch. (The unboxing of the Upsee was glorious!) More importantly, the product itself is of the highest quality, intuitive to use, and supremely effective.
At $489, the Upsee is by no means an inexpensive product but, compared to other special needs devices, it is a bargain! (A wheelchair like Bertrand's will run $8,000, and other gait devices run upwards of $3,000.)
Bertrand has really enjoyed being in the Upsee, and is building up his endurance. We plan on sending it to school with him daily so that his classmates may also benefit from using it.
