Meet the Inventors: Dede Woodman and Walking Wings

Meet the Inventors: Dede Woodman and Walking Wings

Meet Dede Woodman, one of UpSpring's founding members and inventor of our first product, Walking Wings!

The invention came to her after many days (and back aches) spent hunched over her 10-month-old son as he was first learning to walk. 

Dede thought "there has to be a better way." She created a prototype of the Walking Wings vest and within 6 months it was on mass retailer shelves!
