Why Stand? Enables kids to interact eye-to-eye with peers Improves wellbeing, alertness and sleep patterns Aids digestion, bowel function and bladder drainage Enhances circulation and blood pressure Improves respiration and voice control Facilitates formation of the hip joint in early development Stretches muscles, preventing the onset of contractures Increases bone density and reduces risk of fractures Improves skin integrity by relieving pressure encountered during sitting

Standing increases bone density and reduces the risk of fractures. 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. Standing stretches muscles, preventing the onset of contractures. Research shows that standing programmes, if maintained, improve the extensibility of the hamstrings, increase range of movement and...

At Leckey, we understand the importance of standing therapy and the benefits that it can bring a child, and we understand that for some children, standing therapy is more difficult to achieve due to the postural challenges they face. That’s why we’ve developed the Mygo Stander to bring standing therapy to children aged 4 to 14 years old. As a child grows out of the popular Squiggles Stander, their standing therapy can continue with the Mygo Stander as it encourages a natural standing posture with improved function.

A three-in-one Supine, Prone and Upright stander with continuous angle adjustment from vertical to 10 degrees from horizontal. Not only does the angle of the stander change from prone to supine, the angle of the knee and foot supports relative to the hip and chest supports can also be adjusted by 20 degrees to accommodate contractures. Three Configurations Prone in pink fabric

Five Clinical Advantages Accommodation of fixed hip and knee contractures During extensive clinical trials, we have observed a number of children with kyphotic postures and posterior pelvic tilt during their standing therapy (1), often as a result of a stretch on the hamstring muscles. The novel swinging footplate on the Leckey Mygo Stander mechanically links the movement of the footplate to the movement of the knee support. This allows the user to stand in a fully supported position with hip and knees flexed thereby taking the strain off the hamstrings and other contracted muscles (2&3)....

Reduced load bearing on the patella Improved function The innovative V-shaped design of the knee supports on the Leckey Mygo Stander ensures a proximal fit irrespective of the size of the child’s knees and maximises the surface area of loading (4). This load is optimally distributed on the proximal tibia and is directed away from the patella in prone (5). In supine the unique splitstrap design (optional) self locates around the patella and self aligns for any knee angle, thereby equalising pressure above and below the patella (6). The ergonomically designed chest pad replicates the shape of...

1. 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. 2. Breathable, machine washable, colourful covers fit over the wipe clean PU supports. 3. The pelvic de-rotation 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. 4. Flexible hip laterals (not visible) provide proximal support to the pelvis and ensure the user remains...
