SaeboStim Micro CEU Course

This 30-minute continuing education course is presented to you by Dr. Scott Thompson, OTD, MOT, OTR/L, LSVT, the Director of Clinical Services at Saebo, Inc.  This course will introduce you to the principles behind the SaeboStim Micro, evidence-based research concerning the purpose and use of sensory electrical stimulation for neurological recovery, and reasons to treat the somatosensory cortex to prime the motor cortex for recovery in individuals that are healthy or have upper limb dysfunction. 

Completion of this course will reward the participant with 0.5 NBCOT PDUs (0.05 AOTA CEUs), following completion of the presentation and a ≥80% score on the quiz. This course will provide evidence-based research on somatosensory training, sensory electrical stimulation, features and benefits of the SaeboStim Micro discussion of cortical priming and it’s usefulness in rehabilitation, and why using the SaeboStim Micro in the clinic and at home can boost arm and hand recovery for individuals with healthy and dysfunctional limbs. 

This introductory CEU course is intended for medical professionals (e.g. OT/OTA, PT/PTA, Physicians, Orthotists) directly related to the rehabilitation of a patient or client.  To participate in this CEU and receive credit, the participant must be a licensed, treating clinician.
