I’ve been fighting foot drop for about a year now. I have one of the braces that are stiff and goes from my shin to under my foot. It helps but my walking gait is not comfortable. I saw the SaeboStep on a video and was impressed with the way it attached to my foot and wanted to give it a try! I’m very happy with the way I can walk now! My walking gait has improved drastically and I’m no longer using my cane every time I go out! I’m more comfortable when walking on unlevel surfaces and can navigate the stairs. I can go in and out of my house without my wife wanting to hold my hand to keep me from tripping over my toes. I’m thinking of buying more kits for my different shoes so that I can wear them and not just the two that came with the kit. Thanks for helping me get back to a normal life!

I went for my nerve conduction study 2 weeks ago. The Doctor who performed the study saw my SaeboStep and started asking questions about where I got it. He asked if it came with the shoes as a single unit from an orthopedics supplier. He stated, “that’s the coolest thing I’ve ever seen”. Last week at the podiatrist, his assistant had the same sentiment. She even showed it to a coworker in the office. I have been immensely pleased with this product. I have been fitted with an afo. I have not worn it once. The SaeboStep fulfills all my needs. I love this product.

Watch how to apply the SaeboStretch in 1 minute.
The SaeboStretch has a dynamic handpiece that allows the fingers to move through flexion caused by postural changes, associated reactions, and increased tone. It then gradually repositions the fingers into extension. It includes three different handpieces that offer various grades of resistance. The SaeboStretch has comfortable non-slip cover and straps to keep fingers in the desired position, adjustable thumb system to allow for radial and palmar adduction/abduction, and special padding to help maintain the integrity of the palmer arch.

I have been using Saebo equipment for approximately 5 years. First I used the SaeboStretch, secondly the SaeboFlex, followed by the SaeboGlove, and my newest product the SaeboStep.

Our experience with SaeboStep has been amazing since the start! Our son was injured in an accident and as a result, has drop foot. We have several expensive AFOs that he has used, but the SaeboStep has allowed him to walk normally and avoid embarrassment from wearing a brace that his teenage friends notice right away. After some months of wear, the boa on the first Saebo quit holding, so we purchased a second SaeboStep.
