Walter was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy 14 years ago. He explains how the SaeboGlove helped him regain his hand function and how he was able to pinch again. Hear Walter’s story.

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”? I am so happy with the support and comfort I get from the SaeboStep. I can now ride my bike with the assurance that my foot will hit the ground safely and my walking has greatly improved. I will probably have drop foot forever but this device has improved my quality of life. I took one of my husband’s black socks and cut it down so I have total comfort on the back of my lower calf. Just ordered the SaeboStep Crop-A-Dile so I can set up some of my other shoes like sandals. I am 75 years old and this brace is a life changer for me. I have always been very athletic and I am grateful to be walking better with the SaeboStep. Thank you so much.

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.

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.
