A Guide to Electrical Stimulation Therapy for Stroke Patients

Henry Hoffman
Thursday, July 16th, 2020


In simple terms, electrical stimulation is the sending of electrical impulses to generate a muscle contraction. This is usually done via surface electrodes stuck to the skin over the target area. The muscle contraction may be very small to help with pain or sensation, or it may be large enough to produce a visible movement at a joint.

Following a stroke or other neurological injury, you may be left with muscle weakness or complete loss of movement (sometimes called hemiplegia). You may also experience a sudden inability to perform everyday tasks, sensory loss, pain, or a combination of these symptoms.

Tuesday, July 14th, 2020


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’m very happy with the way I can walk now!

SaeboStep - Adjust

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!

The SaeboStep fulfills all my needs. I love this product!

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020


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!
