Upsee invention-FireflyFriendsA revolutionary new harness designed by a mother to give her wheelchair-bound son a chance to walk has been launched on a worldwide market.

Debby Elnatan, whose son Rotem has cerebral palsy, said the idea for a support harness came from her own “pain and desperation”, but will go on to make lives easier for countless families across the world struggling with disability.

It was designed to enable Rotem to stand upright and, by attaching it to herself, Ms Elnatan and her son could take steps together.

The mom is from Israel, but a Northern Irish company is now ready to release a commercial version, called the Upsee.
