FRESNO, California—Sunrise Medical announced the launch of the new LECKEY MyWay+ Gait Trainer. The MyWay+ aims to open a world of independence and exploration for children. The minimalist, open-frame design supports children in an upright position, improving stepping and maximizing opportunities for exploration, interaction and participation.
A frame combined with a wraparound harness, and a wide range of accessories means MyWay+ can be tailored to meet every need and ability. By listening to feedback, Sunrise Medical said it has opened more possibilities for children to develop physical, cognitive and social skills, and explore without limitations.
Early intervention is key to optimizing a child's potential, so the size one frame has been re-sized to better accommodate younger children's body proportions and give them the best opportunity to develop their physical, cognitive and social skills right from the get-go.
MyWay+ brings individuality to the world of walking frames. Its new, robust indoor-outdoor wheels ensure there's no limit to what path the child takes. These wheels, with side-step technology, come with anti-rollback, direction lock and variable resistance as standard.
A wide range of accessories can be combined to tailor the frame to every child's needs and abilities. To provide additional forearm stability for children with low tone, new complex user handles are offered that have numerous adjustments and a choice of grips. A complex headrest is now available for additional head support. For smaller users, a narrow saddle is a new option that reduces hip abduction. A new saddle drop attachment can also be ordered to limit thigh adduction and scissoring gait.
"Emilia absolutely loves the freedom that her MyWay+ gait trainer offers her and being able to join in with her siblings when they are playing together," said Emilia's mom, a recent recipient of the MyWay+. "The MyWay+ keeps all her joints and muscles mobile and gives her the best opportunities for movement and independence."
The minimalist, open-frame design provides support without restriction and encourages interaction and participation. Alongside its newly developed indoor-outdoor casters, MyWay+ opens a world of exploration across different environments.
