The revolutionary SaeboStretch dynamic resting hand splint helps neurologically impaired clients maintain or improve motion while minimizing joint damage and pain. Saebo's energy-storing technology allows individuals suffering from spasticity to stretch comfortably and safely resulting in increased motivation and compliance.
The SaeboStretch overcomes clinical concerns that can result from traditional hard static splints including joint damage, hypermobility, and contractures. This novel splint uses a revolutionary stretch technology, which allows the fingers to move through flexion caused by associated reactions and increased tone. Following relaxation, the fingers gradually return to the desired resting position.
The SaeboStretch includes three interchangeable dynamic hand pieces that can accommodate various levels of spasticity.
Contracture is a loss of motion over time due to abnormal shortening of the soft tissue structures spanning one or more joints. These include skin, ligaments, tendon, muscles and joint capsules. Loss of motion in any of the structures restricts joint mobility leading to pain, stiffness and eventually contracture.
Spasticity is a neuromuscular condition in which muscles are continuously contracted. The stiff or rigid muscles inhibit normal activity, including walking, movement, and speech. It can be caused by lesions in the brain or spinal cord.
