SaeboMAS Mini

The SaeboMAS mini is a great piece of kit for home use. It allows my husband to exercise his affected arm both independently and safely, and therefore build on exercises learned in therapy sessions. It has also given him the confidence of movement, previously restricted by fear of pain.

In all stages of growth and development, repetition is key to successful long-term learning and information retention. Repetition is especially beneficial for stroke survivors who seek to regain motor function, strength, and coordination. Consistent repetition that re-establishes communication between the damaged parts of the brain and the body is crucial in stroke rehabilitation.

Krystal Maclin, Otr/l

Krystal Maclin, OTR/L of Spire Rehab Hospital and her team were recently trained to use the SaeboMAS. This facility treats patients with varying diagnoses, from CVA to traumatic brain injury, and even cardiac patients. With the SaeboMAS, their patients were able to perform a wide variety of functional movements — like reaching down to tie their shoes or reaching into their back pockets — and other activities that they never thought they could achieve before using this dynamic mobile arm support. Hear Krystal’s story in the video below.

Last modified on September 2nd, 2022

Following a neurological or orthopedic injury, it is common for patients to experience impaired arm and hand function resulting in decreased strength, coordination, and range of motion. Patients are often unable to support their own arms or move their arms in order to perform exercises necessary for proper recovery.

With the SaeboMAS, I show my patients that they can do the work, and then just watch them progress

I am an occupational therapist who works with patients recovering from stroke and traumatic brain injury, and the SaeboMAS (mobile arm support) is a very important asset to me. Patients frequently come to me with limited ability to move their arm and/or shoulder, saying “I can’t do this” or “I can’t move my arm at all.” They often have felt like they have made little to no progress since the time of their injury. Then I set them up with the SaeboMAS to aid in unweighting their arm, and they see, almost immediately, that they can move their arm. This is a huge emotional boost and motivates them to engage in the rehabilitation process. Without the SaeboMAS, my only option would be to help patients myself and this undermines their sense of achievement because they perceive that I am doing the work. With the SaeboMAS, the patient’s arm is essentially made lighter so that he or she can do the work alone.

Gravity: Stroke Recovery’s Worst Enemy

Gravity Stroke-Recovery's-Worst-Enemy-blog

Stroke is one of the leading causes of death in the United States, but when stroke doesn’t claim lives, it changes them forever. Loss of blood – and, therefore, oxygen – to the brain almost always results in neurological damage. Though each patient’s symptoms are unique, loss of movement, strength, and coordination are common after stroke.

Fortunately, some of this damage can be undone. After stroke, rehabilitation is the most important factor in determining long-term outcomes. Patients may regain independence by retraining their brains and bodies, and many experts are now trained to help them do just that. There is one inescapable force that is always working against them: gravity.
