- Clients that demonstrate arm and hand weakness (wrist drop/unable to open hand) and are unable to use their hand to perform everyday tasks are great candidates for this device.
- The onset of the injury does not prevent someone from receiving Saebo treatment. Whether the client just had a stroke or orthopedic injury, or if he or she suffered an injury years ago, the SaeboGlove can be of great benefit.
- A licensed therapist will evaluate the client to make sure he or she meets the criteria before starting.
- In order to qualify for the SaeboGlove, clients must be able to close or squeeze their hand minimally. In addition, clients must have minimal to no tightness or spasticity in the fingers or wrist.

- Severe joint deformities in the hand or elbow.
- Significant arthritis.
- Mild-moderate tightness/spasticity or greater in the hand or elbow.
