The fact of the matter is that I have made more progress in therapy using my SaeboFlex for one year than I did in the previous 30 years of convalescence from my stroke.
I experienced my massive and severe stroke at age 15 on December 9, 1979. My left hand, while flaccid, was little more than a paperweight. I had begrudgingly accepted the would-be reality that I would never use my left hand again as I was secure in the knowledge that I had experienced too much damage from my stroke, especially at a young age. I was not depressed over this, but rather was resigned to these would-be facts of life for myself.
And then I attended a Saebo screening session that would determine if I was a candidate to use the SaeboFlex. As soon as I slipped on the device, I felt life returning to my left hand.
Today, not only have I regained the ability to pick up coins with my left hand after only a few months of training with my SaeboFlex, but my overall quality of life has increased greatly as well. My knowledgeable Saebo-trained therapists have been a delight to work with and are truly inspirational.
In addition to being ambitious and progressive, Saebo training programs are realistic. Starting out on a training regime that is ill-developed or unrealistic serves no purpose and indeed is detrimental. The Saebo training programs are devised in such a way that all patients can progress at their own rate.
Saebo has a motto of ‘No plateau in sight’. No truer words have ever been spoken.
