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 am a huge advocate for the SaeboStep!

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.

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 a comfortable non-slip cover and straps to keep fingers in the desired position, an adjustable thumb system to allow for radial and palmar adduction/abduction, and special padding to help maintain the integrity of the palmer arch.

Mental Practice Exercises for Stroke Recovery

Recovering from a stroke takes hard work, dedication and…imagination? While it might seem like a far-fetched statement, using only the mind to reclaim movement can be a reality for many stroke survivors.

Our experience with SaeboStep has been amazing since the start!

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.

Sometimes in life, bad things happen to good people? Life is happily going along and things are relatively in a good place. One event can occur and your life as you know it is completely turned upside down. In June of 2016, I had this happen to me. I experienced a stroke, due to a carted artery dissection. I went from an actively engaged, full time working school nurse and mother of two daughters, to be in a rehabilitation hospital for a month trying to recover from left-sided hemiplegia… learning to walk, swallow, eat and move my left arm and hand. I had no indication.

The SaeboStep came to my rescue!

I have recently developed ‘drop foot‘ causing me to become afraid of tripping and falling since I drag my foot when I walk. The doctor wanted to put me in an AFO device that was large and awkward. I knew that I would NEVER wear it, especially in the summer with shorts on. The SaeboStep came to my rescue! According to my doctors, it is not as safe and effective as a full AFO device but the difference is that I am actually USING this device every day and all day and it is serving its purpose. I am walking much better than previously and I have so much more confidence. I no longer drag my foot and fall and hurt myself which I already did once before.

Don’t misunderstand me, having drop foot SUCKS but the SaeboStep helps me a lot, I have been wearing it for a full week and I just ordered a second one to have on hand!!!!

Try it out for yourself and see what you think.
