Saebo Mirror Box is a scientifically proven treatment tool used to speed up and improve motor function following stroke and other neurological disorders. During Mirror Therapy, the user places their affected limb inside the mirror box and their unaffected hand and forearm in front of the mirror. While looking at the image in the mirror, the client is then directed to perform movement with their unaffected hand in front of the mirror while simultaneously attempting to copy the movement with their hidden affected hand. Mirror Therapy helps program the brain to perceive the affected limb as the healthy one creating the illusion that both limbs are working normally.
Clients suffering from neurological injury such as brain injury or stroke can benefit from mirror therapy. In addition, individuals afflicted by pain are also appropriate for this treatment.
The scientific community is overwhelmingly in agreement about the effects of Mirror Therapy and stroke upper limb recovery. According to research, there is strong evidence that mirror therapy can improve arm and hand motor function following stroke.
Studies show that Mirror Box Therapy can help with reorganizing the damaged part of the brain, also known as neuroplasticity, as well as improving motor recovery and function.
