Mygo Seating System
Modular Mobility Seating for Children and Teens with Special Needs
Posture & Function
“Seating systems are aimed at providing an appropriate level of postural support for each child, as well as offering comfort, skin protection and stability to enable daily functional activities to be carried out at home and at school. As postural control is a pre-requisite for most functional tasks, the inability to control posture has a significant effect on function.”
The most important feature of any seating or mobility system is its ability to align or accommodate a range of pelvic positions. This gives the best possible base of support for trunk and head alignment and arm and hand function.
Mygo with 4-point pelvic harness
Mygo with Pelvic Cradle
4-point attachments on both pelvic harness and Pelvic Cradle ensure they stay in the correct anatomical position for optimum support.
Sacral Support for Pelvic Stability
The flexible sacral support in the Mygo Seating System works with the hip guides and adjustable seat angle to provide the optimum achievable posture for the pelvis.
Flexible sacral support assists in the correction or accommodation of pelvic tilt.
Hip guides provide midline positioning and lateral support, and can be off-set to accommodate asymmetries.
Back angle adjusts from the anatomically correct position ensuring lateral supports stay in the appropriate place when the seat back is reclined.
Trunk and Head Alignment
Trunk and head support contributes to the stability of the pelvis and facilitates arm and hand function, concentration and social interaction.
Flexible scoliosis can be managed by using the lateral supports in conjunction with the pelvic harness to provide 3-point positioning.
Mygo can be fitted with a chest pad or harness depending on the level of additional trunk support required.
When additional head support is needed, the system is compatible with Leckey, Whitmyer and Otto Bock head supports.
Leg and Foot Positioning
Tight hamstrings and unsupported feet can contribute to instability of the pelvis, and therefore the alignment of the trunk and head.
The leg guides can accommodate up to 30° windsweeping as well as ab and adduction.
The leg guides can be adjusted for leg length differences including those caused by a fixed pelvic rotation.
The foot supports can be positioned behind the knees taking the strain off tight hamstrings and promoting pelvic stability.
Although the Mygo Seating System is designed to maximise abilities through providing stable positioning, a number of additional features further improve function.
The chest harness with removable shoulder straps allows increased arm and hand function for table top activities, along with a tray for support at the front.
For those who use augmentative devices, communication systems can be easily attached to the Mygo Seating System’s seat base.
Mygo size 2 has an additional shoulder section which encourages the shoulders into a forward position for more effective arm and hand movement.
