SaeboStim Micro Electro Mesh Glove

“I have been using the SaeboStim Micro in an outpatient rehabilitation setting and I am absolutely amazed by the immediate results. It works extremely well with patients diagnosed with central cord syndrome/spinal cord injury who have upper extremity sensory and motor loss. It also works well for the management of pain and sensory disturbance due to complex regional pain syndrome. Several patients have purchased their own SaeboStim Micro for home use and report weekly improvements in hand sensation. The SaeboStim Micro is an affordable choice and a great addition to an upper extremity sensory home program.”

My name is Becky Carter, and I am an Occupational Therapist at Scenic Mountain Medical Center in Big Spring, Texas. I had the opportunity to trial the Saebo MyoTrac Infiniti with 2 outpatients that I am currently working with. One of the patients is an 18-year-old male who suffered a spinal cord injury with resulting C4-C5 incomplete quadriplegia. This patient is a very motivated young man who was an athlete prior to his injury. He was and is very competitive, even with himself. He absolutely loved the Saebo MyoTrac Infiniti because it gave him visual feedback while he was performing exercises. He enjoyed challenging himself to see if he could make the readings go higher toward the end of an exercise. This patient has had his second round of stem cell transplants, and the neurologist used the readings I provided from the Saebo MyoTrac Infiniti as a way of gauging his improved upper extremity strength before and after stem cell treatments.

How Technology Is Changing Stroke Rehabilitation-blog

While everyday objects like clothespins and cups still play crucial roles in most patients’ journeys toward recovery, new technology is constantly changing the rehabilitation game. From video chats with doctors to robotic gloves and interactive video games, stroke recovery and rehabilitation tools have come a long way in the past decade. This new stroke recovery technology is helping link neuroplasticity and learning. A key part in recovery from a stroke.

This new stroke technology gives patients more repetitions, practice time and intensity compared to previous movement trainings. Not to mention this new technology is also more interactive, attention grabbing and really helps motivate the patient. These new technologies are really helping harness the brain’s ability to repair itself in ways that haven’t been seen before.
