Upsee Assessment

Our specialist paediatric physiotherapists at Bristol Neurophysio now have an Upsee assessment kit that we can use with our younger clients.

The Upsee by Firefly is an upright mobility device designed to give children with developmental delays the chance to experience standing and movement with the help of an adult.

As well as providing a useful adjunct to a child's therapy programme, the Upsee can be an incredible way of allowing a child to explore how it feels to be able to stand and move as well as being able to participate more fully in play and social activities with their friends and family.

If you are interested in trialling the Upsee then please do get in touch


Some kind words

Our daughter’s renal failure means that she is delayed with standing and walking at 2 and half years of age. We first started seeing Jules a few months back for an intense block of physiotherapy to build the strength and skills needed for her to eventually stand and walk.  It was really important that the physiotherapist specialised in paediatrics and could work alongside the NHS physiotherapists we also see. Jules immediately put us at ease with her friendly and professional approach and has built a good, trusting relationship with our daughter.  She uses play as a way to get our daughter to engage with the therapy.  Our daughter has really enjoyed all her physio sessions to date and we have seen a notable improvement in her movement.  She has begun to pull herself up and can climb up small steps as well as shuffle down stairs in a controlled manner!
