Lycra finger panels are made of an elastic material to promote a breathable and intimate fit.
Tensioners assist the finger and thumb joints with extension. Five various sized tensioners allow for maximum adjustability and fit based on finger length and weakness.
Silicon liner minimizes migration and maintains proper alignment. Anti-slip fingertips improve traction during grasping.
Unique spiral forearm design supports the wrist in a functional position.
The SaeboGlove is an innovative hand device equipped with a proprietary tension system that extends the clients fingers and thumb following grasping. The spiral forearm design supports and secures the wrist for individuals exhibiting wrist drop. To learn more about the SaeboGlove’s features, go to our product page.
The SaeboFlex is a high profile, out-rigger style splint made from durable rigid parts used to support and assist individuals with increased tone. The SaeboGlove is a low profile splint made from soft fabric and semi-rigid parts used for patients that do not exhibit hypertonicity.
The SaeboGlove parts do not have the material strength needed to re-extend the digits following grasping of a client that exhibits increased tone. These clients would need the SaeboFlex.
There are 3 groups of clients that typically qualify for the SaeboGlove:
Mildly Affected Neurological Clients: These clients exhibit some finger extension, but not full. They may have used the SaeboFlex, but are no longer challenged by it. They may exhibit mild hypertonicity, but not enough to prevent them from extending their fingers to some degree. They still suffer from hand function impairment including fine motor control, weak finger flexors, and/or weak extensors. Numerous repetitions may be difficult due to weak finger extension strength and endurance. Thumb and index finger tone may be more prevalent. They are typically in the outpatient setting.
Moderate/Severely Affected Neurological Clients: This group exhibits very minimal or no active wrist/finger extension and are very low tone or flaccid; they are not impeded by hypertonicity. They are typically in the inpatient setting. A majority will require electrical stimulation with the SaeboGlove.
Orthopedic Clients: This group typically has a diagnosis of radial nerve palsy/brachial plexus injury/fractures. They exhibit wrist drop and lack finger extension strength.
In order to qualify for the SaeboGlove, clients should exhibit some ability to squeeze. If the clients cannot squeeze (curl fingers), then electrical stimulation to the finger flexors to facilitate squeezing can be provided. In addition to demonstrating active finger flexion, clients should not exhibit spasticity in the hand. If clients demonstrate more than mild hypertonicity in the wrist and fingers, then the SaeboFlex would be required.
As clients make progress with their upper limb recovery, it is common to see improvement with spasticity and better movement in the wrist and fingers. When this occurs, the SaeboGlove may be more appropriate for their next stage of treatment.
Clients that may not be appropriate for the SaeboGlove typically exhibit one or more of the below:
|With a lightweight and low profile design, the SaeboGlove is the premiere functional solution for impaired hand function.||Our original ground breaking design is still the first choice of patients with limited hand function and increased tone.||Includes three interchangeable, spring-loaded plates to allow patients with spasticity to stretch comfortably and safely.||Boost arm and hand recovery through sensory electrical stimulation (SES). Improve function, weakness and spasticity.|
