World-renowned stroke rehabilitation company, Saebo, Inc. celebrates their 15-year anniversary this month.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. – September 15, 2017 – Fifteen years ago, two occupational therapists united with one simple, powerful goal: to provide transformative, affordable rehabilitation products to neurological patients. This month, Saebo, Inc. celebrates their 15-Year Anniversary and reflects on their noteworthy success in the rehab industry and their commitment to “No Plateau in Sight.”
Before Saebo was established, treatment options for improving upper extremity function were limited, and existing technology was very expensive, making it unobtainable for many clinics and home use. Sub-standard therapy methods often resulted in unfavorable outcomes, leading health providers to assume their clients had “reached a plateau.” Saebo’s founders believed it was not the patient, but the treatment options that had plateaued, and were inspired to develop affordable, accessible, life-changing solutions.
Saebo has since grown into a leading global provider of rehabilitation products, developed through extensive research and based on the latest advances in medical technology. Saebo’s flagship product, the SaeboFlex, has helped tens of thousands of clients all over the world improve hand function. Most stroke survivors, head injury patients, and incomplete spinal cord injury patients do not exhibit sufficient active wrist or finger extension to allow the hand to be functional. Designed to help patients functionally incorporate their hand and arm in therapy and at home, the SaeboFlex positions the wrist and fingers into extension to allow the user to grasp and release objects to perform more functional activities. The SaeboFlex was recently featured in an article published in the Journal of Neurophysiology, in which a patient regained hand function more than 23 years after his stroke with the help of this revolutionary device.
“I am so proud of what Saebo has accomplished in the last 15 years,” says co-founder Henry Hoffman. “Not only have we positively changed the way therapists treat stroke patients throughout the world, but we have also stayed true to our company mission, which is to provide affordable, innovative, and meaningful technology. With access to life-changing innovations, stroke survivors world-wide can have a much-deserved second chance. That will continue to be our mission at Saebo.”
Today, Saebo offers a full, comprehensive line of rehabilitation products for in-home and clinical use, ranging from mobile arm supports and foot drop braces to electrical stimulation and virtual reality programs. Saebo’s 30-Day Risk-Free Trial program includes free returns and exchanges and a 100% Money-Back Guarantee, in which patients can try any patient product for 30 days, with the option to return the device for any reason for a full refund. Saebo also offers a free in-clinic demo of any capital equipment device, giving therapists the opportunity to try these innovative products on their own patients, in their own facilities, to experience how beneficial these treatment options could be for their practice.
Saebo, Inc. is a medical device company primarily engaged in the discovery, development and commercialization of affordable and novel clinical solutions designed to improve mobility and function in individuals suffering from neurological and orthopedic conditions. With a vast network of Saebo-trained clinicians spanning six continents, Saebo has helped over 250,000 clients around the globe achieve a new level of independence.
