Stroke survivor exhibits remarkable improvement in hand function more than two decades after stroke, disproving theories that recovery window is limited to 6 months.
Charlotte, N.C. – Tuesday, July 25, 2017 – Until recently, researchers believed that if a stroke survivor exhibited no improvement within the first 6 months, then he or she would have little to no chance of regaining motor function in the future. This assumed end of recovery is called a plateau. However, a groundbreaking new article published in the Journal of Neurophysiology discusses a stroke patient’s remarkable improvement decades after suffering a stroke at the age of 15. Doctors Peter Sörös, Robert Teasell, Daniel F. Hanley, and J. David Spence formally dismiss previous theories that stroke recovery occurs within 6 months, reporting that the patient experienced “recovery of hand function that began 23 years after the stroke.”

SaeboStim Micro equips users with world’s smallest stimulator to work towards mobility and function
Charlotte, N.C. – Saebo, Inc. announces today the official launch of the SaeboStim Micro, innovation created to improve the lives of individuals suffering from impaired neurological function after events like a stroke.
Individuals early in the stroke recovery process only use their involved upper limb less than three and a half hours per day. Moreover, patients undergoing rehabilitation early on receive approximately four minutes of activity-related arm training during therapy. “The limited stimulation to the affected upper limb leads to further decline in recovery and function,” says Saebo Co-Founder, Henry Hoffman. “Research shows that providing evidence-based solutions, such as sensory electrical stimulation (SES), to a neurologically impaired client can be beneficial to the recovery process.”

Confidence and comfort are one step away with Saebo’s revolutionary foot drop brace
Charlotte, N.C. – Saebo, Inc. announces today the official launch of the SaeboStep, a revolutionary, new product created to improve impaired foot mobility and function. The SaeboStep provides users with a slimmed down, lightweight and uniquely-designed foot drop brace that replaces bulky uncomfortable splints used in the past.
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders defines foot drop, also known as dropped foot or drop foot, as “the inability to raise the front part of the foot due to weakness or paralysis of the muscles that lift the foot.” Diseases that can cause foot drop include stroke, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, among others. Foot drop may also occur as a result of hip replacement surgery or knee ligament reconstruction surgery. ORC International, an independent research firm, recently discovered that 99% of American adults with foot drop do not wear a brace that would help them walk normally.
