The Mygo Stander is a three-in-one paediatric standing aid that offers prone, upright and supine standing for 4-14 year olds. The design of the Mygo Stander makes it suitable for children with up to 25 degree hip and knee contractures, assisting them to stand fully supported with more upright posture. The knee supports and straps reduce weight bearing on the patella thanks to a proximal fit that is irrespective of knee size.

Trunk & Head Alignment
As in sitting, trunk and head support contributes to the stability of the pelvis in standing, enhancing arm and hand function, concentration and social interaction.The headrest support bracket is compatible with a range of head supports, including our own custom designed wide headrest. The headrest support bracket is compatible with a range of head supports, including our own custom designed wide headrest.The ergonomically designed chest pad replicates the shape of the rib cage allowing the shoulder girdle to freely protract and retract in prone standing, improving upper body function.Wrap around flexible chest laterals support the upper body in either prone, upright or supine standing with minimum obstruction.
The Mygo Stander is designed to promote independence and function in a number of ways.The ergonomically designed chest pad replicates the shape of the rib cage allowing the shoulder girdle to freely protract and retract in prone standing.Combined with a lower tray height and a more upright head and chest position the client’s upper limb function is significantly improved.The supine shoulder support also stabilises the shoulder girdle. Consequently the Leckey Mygo Stander increases the ability of the user to play, feed and communicate.The Mygo Stander tray is available with a clear insert. Sheets of paper e.g. print outs of communication symbols or schoolwork, can be slipped under the clear insert to keep them in place.
Pelvic stability is as important in standing as in sitting, because the trunk, head, and legs have to be in alignment in order for standing to be comfortable and therapeutically effective.The pelvic derotation belt enables the therapist to position the client’s pelvis in a central and neutral position with minimum effort. A gluteal prompt provides a proprioceptive sense of security to the client.Flexible hip laterals provide proximal support to the pelvis and ensure the user remains in a central position.The optional posterior support pad gives the child the maximum feeling of security and support when standing in prone. It includes a pommel and hip laterals.
