6. The 4 point pelvic harness with integral hip guides gives a secure, stable base of support, is cushioned for comfort and can be adjusted to ensure a mid line position. 7. Flexible sacral cushion, which can be shaped to the contours of the lower back, supports the lower spine in the desired position by encouraging a degree of forward tilt in the pelvis and lower trunk extension. In cases of lumbar lordosis, the pelvic positioning system can help achieve a more neutral position, with the sacral cushion being designed to mould to the child’s shape and maintain a comfortable position. 10....

The adjustability of the new Mygo seating system provides clinicians with the tools to maximise: Pelvic stability Trunk and head alignment Leg and foot positioning “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 impact on function” (Wright et al, 2010).

SACRAL SUPPORT AND CUSHIONING FOR PELVIC STABILITY Posture, Function & Comfort Pelvic stability Integral to the Mygo Seating System’s pelvic harness is the flexible sacral support and hip guides. The flexible sacral support adjusts either to encourage a lumbar curve (neutral pelvis) or accommodate a posteriorly tilted pelvis. The most important feature of any seating or mobility system is its ability to provide pelvic stability (for tilt, rotation and obliquity) as this gives the optimum base for trunk and head alignment and upper limb function. The Mygo Seating System has a range of unique...

With the addition of the contoured shoulder section on the new 2010 Mygo, not only is the height of the backrest extended for greater growth, but shoulder protraction is facilitated for better trunk alignment, upper limb function, and neck and head stability. Posture, Function & Comfort Trunk and Head Alignment Seating systems need to provide appropriate trunk and head support because this contributes to the stability of the pelvis, and facilitates upper limb function, concentration, and social interaction. The Mygo Seating System’s trunk and head supports can be individually tailored to...

The Mygo Seating System’s lower leg supports follow the leg guides when they move into adduction or abduction, ensuring the footplates remain in position below the knees. Posture, Function & Comfort Leg and Foot Positioning Seating systems also need to provide appropriate leg and foot support as this plays a crucial role in maintaining the stability of the pelvis, and therefore the alignment of the trunk and head. Often overlooked, hamstrings are frequently tight in those with limited movement and can disturb pelvic stability. In addition, the feet take up to 19% of body weight, and when...
