I have had MS for 17 years and walk with a cane because I suffer from severe right foot drop. The first day I received the SaeboStep I had planned a weekend in Atlantic City so I thought that would be as good a time as any to try it. I used it at the airports and walking in the casinos. Needless to say, it was a lot of steps and walking for me. The SaeboStep was easy to use and adjust and helped me to walk better, therefore saving more energy.

Confidence and comfort are one step away with Saebo’s revolutionary foot drop brace

Charlotte, N.C. – Saebo, Inc. announces today the official launch of the SaeboStep, a revolutionary, new product created to improve impaired foot mobility and function. The SaeboStep provides users with a slimmed down, lightweight and uniquely-designed foot drop brace that replaces bulky uncomfortable splints used in the past.

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders defines foot drop, also known as dropped foot or drop foot, as “the inability to raise the front part of the foot due to weakness or paralysis of the muscles that lift the foot.” Diseases that can cause foot drop include stroke, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, among others. Foot drop may also occur as a result of hip replacement surgery or knee ligament reconstruction surgery. ORC International, an independent research firm, recently discovered that 99% of American adults with foot drop do not wear a brace that would help them walk normally.

Constraint-Induced Movement Therapy After Stroke-blog

When a stroke causes a person to lose the use of one of their limbs, they can easily get frustrated, stop trying to use it at all, and start relying solely on the unaffected limb.

How Fun Activities Help Stroke Rehabilitation-blog

There are a number of ties between physical activity and reduced risk for stroke. Studies have shown that individuals who remain physically active as they get older are between 25 and 30 percent less likely to experience a stroke. Physical activity also plays a huge role in the lives of individuals who do end up experiencing one as it helps in the recovery process.

Exercise after a stroke is a vital factor in regaining function, so finding and participating in exercises that are fun, rather than tedious or boring, can make a big difference during rehab and recovery. It can be difficult to find the motivation to rehab after a stroke, but fun activities help stroke patients stick with their recommended regimens.
