"Do it your way in MyWay!"
MyWay is all about giving children maximum opportunities for interaction, exploration and participation in a supported, upright position.
MyWay has a revolutionary harness support system which delivers the core stability required to support head control and limb movement, enabling children to achieve optimum stepping ability. Furthermore, MyWay's open-frame design makes touching, feeling, participating and discovering easier, giving children more opportunities for development and learning. It also allows therapists to get close to the child and work with their lower limbs whilst they are in MyWay.
MyWay is available in 3 frame sizes and 6 harness sizes, for children aged approximately 1-16 years old.
The MyWay harness (Patent No. GB2542922) delivers comfortable support in an optimum upright position for children with abnormal muscle tone and/or weakness, who are unable to walk without support. The MyWay harness helps children to achieve optimum stepping ability and gives them the opportunity to move around their environment to the best of their ability as it provides the core stability required to support head control and limb movement.
The MyWay harness is hoistable meaning children can be transferred directly in/out of their MyWay frame using the optional hoisting straps accessory. There is no need to use a different hoisting sling to do this, saving time and supporting the child in getting maximum use and enjoyment out of their MyWay!
The MyWay frame is completely open allowing children to play with friends, discover new environments, take part in activities, learn or just have fun- the choice is theirs!
The castors on the MyWay frame are multi-functional and offer brake, direction lock, anti-roll back and resistance. MyWay’s castors can be set to assist children with their individual needs e.g. steering, preventing backwards movement or limiting speed, helping maximise their opportunity for use.
MyWay has a unique Adult Connection Belt accessory (Patent No. GB2541697). This allows an adult to attach to the MyWay frame and control the frame’s movements, providing additional support to the child if required. Using the connection belt allows the adult to facilitate walking and therapy exercises whilst leaving their hands free to interact and work with the child.
