Refinishing oak floors

Are there any products we can put on our wood floors on the second floor to seal them/rejuvenate them without having to re-sand them?

Those look to be in pretty good shape based on that photo and appear to be coated with polyurethane.

You don't need to put anything on polyurethane, like wax or any other polish. In fact, doing so can damage the finish.

If the floors are looking scuffed or worn, but the finish is not worn through to the wood, then you can screed them (lightly sand or abrade) and put down a new coat of polyurethane.

If the poly is old and has yellowed to a point that you're unhappy with, there is nothing that can be done other than sanding the finish off entirely and refinishing.

What Ironlight said. Those look like they're in pretty nice shape, unless the picture simply doesn't give an accurate view.
