The Upseat Was Designed By Physical Therapists
With Your Baby’s Health in Mind
As parents ourselves, we know how important your baby’s health is. That’s why we consulted over 50 physical therapists when designing the Upseat. The Upseat is a 3-in-1 ergonomic baby floor seat. While some baby seats immobilize a baby’s legs and cause slouching, the Upseat is safe and promotes healthy development.
The Upseat Supports Upright Posture
Most baby seats are designed with a backward tilt, causing their backs to curve and slouch. In contrast, the Upseat is an infant sit up seat that encourages an anterior pelvic tilt, which is a slight forward rotation of the pelvis that engages the muscles responsible for proper, upright posture. The Upseat also comes up high on your little one’s back, providing more support when they’re just starting to practice sitting up.
Safe for Developing Hips
Another common problem with most baby seats on the market is that they restrict hip and leg movements. According to the International Hip Dysplasia Institute, the“healthiest position for the hips is for the hips to fall or spread apart to the side.” Most baby seats have small and tight gaps for the baby’s legs, forcing them together and disrupting healthy hip development. The Upseat is designed with large groves and pommel that allow your baby to sit and play comfortable in a natural position.
As a 3-in-1 seat, the Upseat converts from a floor seat to a feeding seat with an attachable tray. When feeding your little one, it’s important that the pelvis is tipped forward instead of backward. Backwards positioning will cause your baby to compress the back of their necks to keep their head level, increasing the risk of choking. Luckily, because the Upseat encourages anterior pelvic tilt (a slight forward rotation of the pelvis), your baby will be held in a good extended position, ideal while eating.
