Thursday, February 22nd, 2018


In all stages of growth and development, repetition is key to successful long-term learning and information retention. Repetition is especially beneficial for stroke survivors who seek to regain motor function, strength, and coordination. Consistent repetition that re-establishes communication between the damaged parts of the brain and the body is crucial in stroke rehabilitation.

Pseudobulbar Affect - Not All Crying After Stroke Is Depression

Among stroke survivors, feelings of depression and sadness are unfortunately common. The body has experienced acute changes both physically and mentally, and certain emotional responses may be triggered as a result. A survivor may find themselves dealing with bouts of anger, mood swings, and moments of intense crying or laughing, but these reactions do not necessarily indicate a typical case of depression.

“I am absolutely amazed by the immediate results.”

SaeboStim Micro

“I have been using the SaeboStim Micro in an outpatient rehabilitation setting and I am absolutely amazed by the immediate results. It works extremely well with patients diagnosed with central cord syndrome/spinal cord injury who have upper extremity sensory and motor loss. It also works well for the management of pain and sensory disturbance due to complex regional pain syndrome. Several patients have purchased their own SaeboStim Micro for home use and report weekly improvements in hand sensation. The SaeboStim Micro is an affordable choice and a great addition to an upper extremity sensory home program.”

It felt easier to walk and they enjoyed the low profile of the SaeboStep!

Friday, December 22nd, 2017


My name is Katie and I am a pediatric physical therapist. I have long thought of Saebo as a company geared towards occupational therapy for rehab of the hand/arm. Recently, I attended an in-service by a Saebo rep where I learned about the SaeboStep. Our rep, Lanie noted that most clinics she has worked with have used the SaeboStep for post-stroke for helping with foot drop, so she was more than willing to let me have a trial to use with my pediatric population.

He reported improvement after the first day!

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017


I recently used the SaeboStim Micro with a patient in his seventies who had a stroke (CVA) four months prior. He was receiving inpatient rehab at our skilled nursing facility.  He had made significant progress regaining motor function but continued to have impaired sensation in his hand. He reported a continuous tingling feeling. He also had difficulty distinguishing different sensations (sharp, dull, smooth, soft, hard, etc). This made many daily tasks harder. For example, buttoning a shirt took concentration as he struggled to feel the difference between the hard button and the pliable cloth. Many other tasks similarly took extra effort and time.
