Mygo Stander

  • Age4-14
  • Complexitymoderate - complex

Prone, supine and upright stander which accommodates contractures


Posture & Function

Research has shown that standing can improve bone density, motor abilities and reduce spasticity, tone and spasms. In addition, the Mygo Stander offers 5 clinical advantages.

Why Stand?

  • <p>  <strong>Standing increases bone density and reduces the risk of fractures.<br />  </strong>Normal bone development needs a combination of good nutrition, weight bearing, e.g. through standing or walking, and the use of muscles. Research shows that standing improves the bone density of the pelvis and leg bones of non-ambulatory children, such as those with CP, Muscular Dystrophy, Spina Bifida or spinal cord injury.<a href=

  • <p>  <strong>Standing stretches muscles, preventing the onset of contractures.<br />  </strong>Research shows that standing programmes, if maintained, improve the extensibility of the hamstrings, increase range of movement and reduce the extent of spasticity. Standing also provides proprioceptive input to young developing muscles and joints, builds endurance to standing and regulates resting muscle tone.<a href=

  • <p>  <strong>Standing improves respiration and voice control.<br />  </strong>When we stand, the diaphragm has more room to expand and contract, meaning that we can breathe in and out more easily, deeply and efficiently. Therefore standing allows individuals to speak with improved volume and voice control.<br />  <a href=

  • <p>  <strong>Standing enhances circulation and blood pressure.<br />  </strong>Effective circulation is closely related to breathing. Standing results in improvements in blood pressure, heart rate and circulation, and a reduction in orthostatic hypotension and oedema in the legs and feet.<a href=

  • <p>  <strong>Standing enables kids to interact eye-to-eye with their peers.<br />  </strong>Eye-to-eye interaction improves confidence, self-esteem and self-image as the child can accomplish tasks in the same manner as other students or siblings. Supported standing eliminates the fear of falling and so allows the individual to direct their attention towards learning and social interaction.<a href=

  • <p>  <strong>Standing improves wellbeing, alertness and sleep patterns.<br />  </strong>Studies have reported improved sleep, decreased fatigue, increased alertness and feelings of wellbeing from regular standing. While standing the effects of retained primitive reflexes such as symmetrical tonic neck reflex (STNR) and tonic labyrinthine reflex (TLR) are more controlled and therefore sensory organisation, comfort, energy and attention are maximised.<a href=

  • <p>  <strong>Standing aids digestion, bowel function and bladder drainage.<br />  </strong>Standing is believed to help with digestion and toileting though a combination of gravity and the activation of the stomach muscles. Studies have backed this up showing improved bowel regularity and clearance and better bladder awareness and emptying.<br />  <a href=

  • <p>  <strong>Standing facilitates the formation of the hip joint in early development.<br />  </strong>Children who stand at the normal developmental age of 12-16 months are considered more likely to develop the ball and socket of the hip joint, which can prevent hip subluxation or dislocation. Standing from an early age also helps a child with standing transfers in the future.<br />  <a href=

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 wings on the contoured shoulder support can be angle adjusted to provide shoulder protraction.  This brings the hands to midline which increases upper limb and hand control for improved function.

Function

The Mygo Stander is designed to promote independence and function in a number of ways.

  • Combined with a lower tray height and a more upright head and chest position the client’s upper limb function is significantly improved.

  • 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

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.
