Features:

Evidence-based SaeboMind treatment for rehabilitation of movement after a stroke or brain injury involves actively listening to audio recordings and imagining what it would be like to perform the activity using the affected side.

  • Choose from a variety of upper extremity and lower extremity functional activities in the SaeboMind Exercise Portal.
  • Total practice time ranges from 20-30 minutes for one audio file.
  • All audio files start with Introduction Meditation and end with a Closing Meditation that includes:
    • Progressive Muscle Relaxation – a mindful sequence of contraction and relaxation of muscle groups to increase awareness and develop control of muscles;
    • Deep Breathing – promotes a relaxation response to lower stress and increase focus, increasing oxygen and blood flow to brain and body;

Note: Intervention must include the introductory and closing meditation sequences for effectiveness.

Tip: For best results, each sequence can easily be performed following an initial direction by a skilled therapist, by contacting your Saebo Patient Representative for guidance, or by closely following instructions in this manual.

Indications for Use:

  • Clients with stroke or brain injury that have difficulty moving one or both sides of their bodies due to weakness or motor control impairments.
  • Clients must be able to concentrate for the duration of a session (20-30 minutes)
  • Listening to MP tends to work best on those that can:
    • understand concepts regarding mental rehearsal
    • actively listen and imagine a visual picture in the mind
    • understand (most) spoken directions.
  • Clients can still qualify for MP even if they can’t move/feel their affected limb(s).

Precautions:

There are no known adverse effects for participating in mental practice. However, it is highly important to follow the below guidelines:

  • Always perform mental practice in a chair or bed that is considered supportive, safe, and secure to avoid falls.
  • Ensure all of your assistive equipment is within reach to avoid falls.
  • NEVER STAND UP or physically perform any of the actions described during mental practice.
  • Supervision is recommended for clients with disorientation or confusion that could place themselves at risk for injury.
  • SAEBOMIND EXERCISE AUDIO FILES ARE INTENDED FOR LISTENING AND MENTAL PRACTICE OF A TASK ONLY.
  • NEVER drive or operate a vehicle unless cleared by a physician.
  • Always work directly with a skilled rehabilitation professional when physically practicing tasks that could place you at risk for fall or injury.
  • After finishing your MP session, it is common to be very relaxed as you come back to awareness in your room. As a general precaution, be sure to give yourself time to sit up and stretch, move your muscles, and become alert before getting out of your chair/bed. This will help to reduce the risk of losing balance or becoming light headed from getting up too quickly.

    Great tool! My husband s/p severe left-sided stroke 10/16 has used it 4 times and he said it is amazing. He said it is exhilarating and when he tightens his muscles and then slowly loosens then he gets a “natural high”. Today he opened the door latch with his left hand which is something he never did before. We have done the sit to stand, balance and door. Look forward to doing the rest. P.S. I do the breathing along with him and I fall asleep.

  2. Emmanuel M.

    Very easy to get going and very helpful I’m my opinion! Even though my right side is slowly waking up my mind is still very normal I find it very easy to navigate but most importantly very helpful in my case!

  3. Rachael H.

    Great product! I like that I can use it on all of my devices and it is helpful for all of my current struggles. I look forward to seeing the results.

  4. James

    Lots of great activities to choose from! Easy and relaxing.

What is SaeboMind?

SaeboMind is a collection of mental imagery practice exercises for improved motor recovery. According to research, mentally rehearsing specific tasks in combination with other treatment can improve upper extremity function after a neurological injury like stroke. Listen, visualize, and retrain your brain to perform functional daily tasks.

I had my stroke 10 years ago. Is it too late for me to start using SaeboMind?

Absolutely not! When it comes to your health, recovery, and physical abilities, it is never too late to try. People up to 20 years post neurological injury can benefit from mental practice exercises.

What can I (or my patient) expect?

In each mental practice session, you will be imagining yourself performing daily tasks with your affected arm, wrist, and fingers. When your mental practice sequence is complete you will go through a brief period of progressive muscle relaxation and deep breathing until you have returned to your present environment and opened your eyes.
