SaeboStim Micro Electro Mesh Glove

I am a true fan of Saebo products. During this pandemic, I am so great full to have access to products so that I can continue my physical therapy and rehabilitation on my own at home. My stroke was in June of 2016, four years ago. I was introduced to Saebo in April of 2017. I always wished I had discovered this therapy immediately after my stroke. It is a perfect solution for anyone who takes rehabilitation seriously and is motivated and willing to work for results. Initially, I had complete paralysis in my left arm and hand. I have been able to prevent contractures and actually increase the time range of motion of the upper arm and elbow, my wrist and fingers are regaining movement and I can now pick up some small objects and stabilize items with my left arm and hand. I am a big fan of the Saebo stimulation products. The SaeboStim Micro, for use during the night, and the wireless butterfly pads for daytime stimulations are both awesome. The balls routine and SaeboFlex have been most helpful, I find I can now manage about as well on my own as I could with the SaeboGlove. I definitely recommend trying these products, they can help you get to your next level, whatever that is!

I broke my left tibia on 10/17 and had severe nerve damage. I have a spring-loaded AFO. Both were very uncomfortable but were necessary for me to walk safely with my drop foot. I saw the Brad and Bob video on the SaeboStep and thought “what can I lose”?

After my ischemic stroke on November 27, 2017, I was in acute rehab, then a skilled nursing facility, and then assisted living. During the year after my stroke, my OT introduced me to the SaeboFlex. It really helped me get my hand & finger movement back. Now, I can even play my trumpet!

I was diagnosed with Toxic Acute Progressive Leukoencephalopathy before I reached stage four I started to suffer from Locked-In Syndrome. After I endured six months of hospice and slowly began to come back to life. I overheard some occupational therapists talking about some sort of dynamic splint.

My 86 year old Mom has been very healthy until she turned 80 when they had to bypass a subclavian aneurysm. She went into afib a few weeks later and had her first stroke. Three years later an area affected by the first stroke burst causing right-side paralysis. She’s past two years on her second stroke and mainly uses a wheelchair. We are using the SaeboStep for walking to help with dragging her foot. It’s a great product.

SaeboStim Go

I feel compelled to share my win with you today! After my injury, I never really expected to get much movement back in my shoulder. I haven’t been able to get so much as a twitch. However, by using the SaeboStim One, I am now getting a tiny bit of voluntary movement. It is a pathetic movement, but it is a movement under my power!

I just want to thank SaeboFlex for giving me a chance.

SaeboFlex

It feels like I have my hand back. I haven’t been able to move my fingers in 11 months and now I can hold them out instead of them being scrunched up all the time. I can pick up a ball and drop it in a basket. I’m telling you, it’s amazing!

SaeboStim Go Flexible Wing

I had a hemorrhage stroke on August 17, 2018, and within a couple of weeks, my shoulder subluxated, and it was painful. So much so that I was unable to participate in any rehab. I tried other solutions, and it improved the pain for a short time. However, after a couple of months, I, unfortunately, was back to square one.

I have been using the SaeboStep brace since about March 1st, 2019. I already wrote one testimonial about how great it has been for me and how it has allowed me to function and walk almost normally while I am wearing it. In addition to having drop foot I also recently had the TAVR procedure to replace my aortic heart valve. After having the successful procedure I was placed in a cardiac rehabilitation program where I am expected to exercise for 40 minutes 3 days per week in order to regain my stamina after being very sedentary for a long time due to both of my conditions.

Questions to ask your occupational therapist

This guest post was provided to us by Hoang Tran from Hands On Therapy

So maybe you have had an injury to your body such as a broken bone or surgery, an injury to your brain such as a stroke or a brain injury, or have a condition that is affecting your ability to function independently like you were before such as Parkinson’s. If any one of these conditions affect how you live your life and how you want to function with less difficulty, you may be looking for an Occupational Therapist. I am and occupational therapist and certified hand therapist. With some 15 years of experience now, I’ve had the opportunity to see a great deal of patients in various settings and with various conditions. I have been asked a lot of questions along the way, and there are also a lot of questions that I want my patients to make sure they ask when seeking out certain type of help.
