Sometimes in life, bad things happen to good people? Life is happily going along and things are relatively in a good place. One event can occur and your life as you know it is completely turned upside down. In June of 2016, I had this happen to me. I experienced a stroke, due to a carted artery dissection. I went from an actively engaged, full time working school nurse and mother of two daughters, to be in a rehabilitation hospital for a month trying to recover from left-sided hemiplegia..learning to walk, swallow, eat and move my left arm and hand. I had no indication.

I have recently developed ‘drop foot’ causing me to become afraid of tripping and falling since I drag my foot when I walk. The doctor wanted to put me in an AFO device that was large and awkward. I knew that I would NEVER wear it, especially in the summer with shorts on. The SaeboStep came to my rescue! According to my doctors, it is not as safe and effective as a full AFO device but the difference is that I am actually USING this device every day and all day and it is serving its purpose. I am walking much better than previously and I have so much more confidence. I no longer drag my foot and fall and hurt myself which I already did once before.
Don’t misunderstand me, having drop foot SUCKS but the SaeboStep helps me a lot, I have been wearing it for a full week and I just ordered a second one to have on hand!!!!
Try it out for yourself and see what you think.

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.
