Saebo Certification – Live

Saebo is an accredited provider of continuing education by the American Occupational Therapy Association, Inc. (AOTA). We offer 1-day (0.8 CEU’s) and 1/2–day (0.4 CEU’s) courses nationally and internationally. Following successful completion of the training, clinicians are eligible to measure, fit and order Saebo’s dynamic neurological orthoses.

During the lab section of the program, therapists will team up and assemble and fit each other with the SaeboFlex and SaeboReach. They will learn all the parts that make up the orthoses and the correct adjustment/fitting procedure. The lab section will also include local stroke survivors who have offered their time to help demonstrate our products and program. Toward the end of the training, clinicians will have the opportunity to fit the demonstration volunteers with the orthoses and provide task-oriented arm training drills.
