The SaeboStim Go, a wireless electrical stimulation device, is designed to prevent or reduce shoulder subluxation by strengthening the weakened muscles surrounding the joint. The affordable and compact device works by delivering electrical signals through its wireless electrodes to the targeted shoulder muscles that lift the arm back into the joint.
The SaeboStim Go can be used for other parts of the body as well. The device’s program parameters are clinically designed to improve function, slow down atrophy, and strengthen weakened muscles.
One of the most common areas often affected by a neurological injury is the shoulder (i.e., glenohumeral joint). The shoulder complex is a very sophisticated and complicated joint in the body. It consists of 20 muscles, 3 bones, 3 joints, and 1 articulation. It has the greatest ROM of any joint in the body but at the expense of stability.
Electrical stimulation or neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) is a technique used to elicit a muscle contraction using electrical impulses. Electrodes, controlled by a unit, are placed on the skin over a predetermined area. Electrical current is then sent from the unit to the electrodes and delivered into the muscle causing a contraction. A few of the benefits seen with electrical stimulation include increased strength, improved range of motion, and decreased pain.
