An Israeli mother, Debby Elnatan, whose son has cerebral palsy, has come up with a clever device called an ‘Upsee’ that will help disabled children ‘walk’ together with their parents and loved ones.

It features a full body harness and special sandals that secures the child to the parent in an upright position, so that they can walk together and perform simple movements, like gently kicking a ball.

Debby said, “The Upsee means so much to us as a family, it’s given us the opportunity to do things that we would never have the chance to do.”

The Upsee will be available from the 7th of April at Firefly.
