Graduated from D’Youville College in Buffalo, NY in 1997 with a Masters degree in occupational therapy. Since graduation, he has worked in a variety of settings including home health, acute, sub-acute, and outpatient rehab. Prior to leaving Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in New York, he worked as a clinical specialist in orthopedic medicine and manual therapy of the upper quadrant. Henry left Burke in the fall of 2002 to co-launch Saebo.
Neurorehabilitation was a frustrating field in recent past due to this common belief by many health professionals that patients have "reached a plateau" or "no further gains can be made". It was my belief that it was not the patient that had plateaued, but rather the treatment options. Our slogan, "No Plateau in Sight," was inspired by this mentality as we believed further functional gains can be made with innovative and revolutionary concepts.
Since the birth of Saebo, we have witnessed therapists' excitement with offering new treatment options to their patients. In addition, patients who were 20 years post-stroke have realized progress and have gained the ability to do everyday tasks they had not been able to do for decades. We take pride in re-inspiring a profession and giving patients real tangible results and hope.
To be an inventor on the forefront of an industry, you must develop products that are revolutionary, not just evolutionary. Taking an industry, especially healthcare and medical treatment, to another level requires getting the industry to change behaviors and mindsets.
Saebo also believes that treatment can and should be affordable. We are pleased to offer the healthcare industry affordable products that are reimbursed by most insurance companies including Medicare. By allowing neurological patients easy access to our innovative products, further functional gains can be made impacting his or her overall quality of life.
Saebo's name is an acronym for my grandmother "Sarah Eileen Booth". Her entire life was dedicated to providing a hand to others in need. Our company mission is to match her spirit, dedication, and desire to help others.
