Mygo Stander

Mygo Stander

LECKEY’s Mygo brings standing therapy to kids from 4 to 14 years old as they grow and experience postural changes. Mygo encourages a natural standing posture and offers prone, supine and upright standing in one product. The angle of knee and foot supports relative to the hip and chest can be adjusted 20° to accommodate contractures. Footplates adjust individually to accommodate up to 10° plantar or dorsi flexion. Wings on the contoured shoulder support are angle adjustable to provide shoulder protraction and bring the hands midline. A pelvic derotation belt positions the pelvis in a central and neutral position with minimal effort.

Dondolino

The Dondolino standing frame, designed by Ormesa and distributed by Innovation In Motion, was created to be used as part of a child’s everyday activities at home.

Permobil

F5 Corpus VS

F5 Corpus VS

Described as “standing without compromise,” Permobil’s new F5 front-wheel-drive power base with the Corpus VS standing option allows the user to drive from any point of the standing sequence. A redesigned chest bar offers greater user comfort and stability while upright. The F5 Corpus VS still retains 50° of posterior tilt, 85-180° of power recline and an optional 14" of seat elevation so consumers can access the precise positioning they need to optimally function throughout the day. The power positioning options also enable the consumer to achieve the best weight-shifting positions, while enjoying improved respiration and circulation in standing mode.

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2017:

Permobil F5 VS Group 4 power wheelchair with multiple power options including a standing feature: The reasoning behind it is it is very beneficial for specific patient diagnoses and very difficult to get funding sources to pay for them, so it gives us RTS’s purpose and cause.

An ATP & Clinician Best Pick of 2017:

Set-up friendly for ATP/therapists with a lot of growth potential to meet the needs of the kiddo.

— Kathy Fallon, ATP, Kennebec Pharmacy & Home Care

I love this product because it provides a way for my clients to stand with hips in abduction, and to work in prone as well as upright. By working in prone, I have been able to help kids become stronger that don’t enjoy being prone on the floor — helping them make motoric changes much faster because they enjoy prone in their standers so the parents will use it more. I also love that I can order this product for my little ones as early as 9 months and know that it will grow to 44” or about kindergarten to second grade, depending on their size. As a therapist, I feel good about ordering a quality product that will grow for that many years!

— Mary Miles, PT, DPT, ATP, White Bear Lake B-2 early intervention

Stander allows for easy supine transfer. Once positioned, the client can be raised upright and even into prone position without changing or replacing parts. Easy to adjust for positioning and growth. Best part are the colorful positioning component covers.

TEK RMD

TEK RMD

The latest introduction (at press time) to Numotion’s online store is the TEK RMD (for “robotic mobilization device”) from Matia Robotics. Numotion, TEK’s exclusive American distributor, describes it as a motorized standing movement device for manual wheelchair users, who can transfer into and operate the TEK independently thanks to its design. Boarding the TEK is done from the back of the device, and it uses a gas spring mechanism to balance the weight of the user. The TEK could draw comparisons in various ways to a patient lift, a standing frame and a manual wheelchair. But in function and operation (it drives via a joystick), TEK has unique qualities, including a smaller footprint than a traditional standing frame, and a smaller turning footprint and a more upright stance than a traditional standing wheelchair, which could make it easier for TEK users to reach and engage in various activities while standing. A remote control enables users to independently bring the TEK to them and send it away.

Kaye Products

Dynamic S3 & DS4

Dynamic S3 & DS4

Designed for clients who do not develop adequate balance, weight shift or postural control to stand or walk unaided, Kaye’s dynamic multi-positional standers allow 360° of movement within the base support while the client is standing. The excursion of movement of the stander is adjusted via a spring-loaded crank, and range of movement can be increased as clients develop confidence. Resistance to movement can also be adjusted so clients can work on postural control. The standers enable clients to experience natural weight shifts that occur when reaching or performing self-care activities. The tray comes standard.

Jenx Monkey Prone Stander

Jenx Monkey Prone Stander

An early-intervention favorite, the Jenx Monkey prone stander allows for a smooth progression from a comfortable prone-on-elbows position into an upright standing position, all in one session. The Monkey — which recently underwent an aesthetics upgrade — can accommodate young children from 9 months to 4 years old, and is designed for little ones with good head control who will benefit from standing. Tool-free adjustments make it easy for caregivers to adjust positioning supports as the child grows, and the Monkey’s compact footprint fits right into school or home.
