Coy’s life before his stroke on December 2, 2018, was fun and fulfilling. He gathered regularly with friends and family, was a talented fast-talking auctioneer, traveled all over to tractor shows, and raised family of goats on a small farm. Like many other stroke survivors, Coy’s stroke caused his right dominant arm and hand to be almost entirely paralyzed. He also struggled to pay attention to his affected side—a very common yet disabling condition that can be a safety concern and interferes with regaining use of the weaker side.

I was hesitant to try the SaeboGlove because, over the years, I have spent so much money on devices that I thought would be helpful for my situation but then have turned out to be just a waste of money.
Definitely not the case with the SaeboGlove.

As a therapist, I have struggled with treating sensory loss for many years. I have found there to be limited treatment options available, and those that are available have limited effectiveness. I have recently begun trialing the SaeboStim Micro to assist with recovery from sensory loss and am thoroughly impressed with the results!

Five months post-stroke, my husband had still been having hand spasms, always when he yawned, but at other times as well. He spent a lot of time with his hand on a heating pad. After only a couple nights of using the P2 mode of the SaeboStim Micro, he was surprised to find he no longer had the spasms when yawning, and very few during the day. We are hoping for more improvement as time goes by, but the SaeboStim Micro has been a wonderful success already!

I recently demoed the Saebo MyoTrac Infiniti on a patient who suffered a stroke in June 2018. He has been suffering from right shoulder pain, limiting his range of motion and overall function. The patient demonstrates difficulty activating his scapular depressors and retractors during functional movement patterns. Additionally, the patient was reporting significant pain with 8/10 consistently with movement and 6/10 at rest.

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.

“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 Katie and I am a pediatric physical therapist. I have long thought of Saebo as a company geared towards occupational therapy for rehab of the hand/arm. Recently, I attended an in-service by a Saebo rep where I learned about the SaeboStep. Our rep, Lanie noted that most clinics she has worked with have used the SaeboStep for post-stroke for helping with foot drop, so she was more than willing to let me have a trial to use with my pediatric population.
