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.
- The design of the Mygo Stander’s knee and foot supports allows users with fixed knee and hip contractures of up to 25 degrees to stand fully supported, with hips and knees flexed, and a more upright, less kyphotic posture.
- The V-shaped knee supports and the design of the knee straps ensure a proximal fit irrespective of the size of the user’s knees with reduced load bearing on the patella.

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.
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.
