SaeboGlove FAQs

How does it work?

  • Following an orthopedic or neurological injury or disease, it is common for clients to experience decreased lower extremity coordination, increased weakness or spasticity in the muscles responsible for lifting the foot, which is referred to as foot drop.
  • Often, a client experiencing foot drop will try to compensate by hiking their hip or bending their knee more to clear their foot without dragging. This can lead to further problems in the back due to the abnormal compensation movements.
  • TheSaeboStep consists of a lightweight and comfortable foot drop brace that provides optimum foot clearance and support during walking.
  • TheSaeboStep was designed to replace uncomfortable, stiff, or bulky splints that go inside the shoe, as well as poorly manufactured braces designed for outside of the shoe that lack support and durability.
  • The SaeboStep is a foot drop brace that has four components to help fully lift the foot when walking.
  • Cushioned Strapping System – The adjustable strap is made of soft hook and loop material and comfortably wraps around the ankle.
  • BOA “Lift” Dial – The dial is located on the ankle strap and allows the client to quickly and easily customize the lift angle required for lifting the foot for safe clearance, or release the tension as needed with a simple turn of the dial.
  • Spectra Cord – The spectra cord is a thin and durable cord that attaches to they eyelets on the shoe to lift the foot quickly and easily.
  • Hook Attachments – Small, metal attachments that are secured on the shoe to secure the spectra cord.

How do I know it is right for me (or my patient)?

  • The SaeboStep is designed for individuals that have had injuries that result in:
    • Limited lower extremity movement and function leading to difficulty raising the foot.
    • Ankle/foot weakness.
    • Decreased foot sensation leading to decreased coordination.
  • Some diagnoses that may benefit from use of the SaeboStep include but are not limited to:
    • Stroke or brain tumor.
    • Traumatic Brain Injury.
    • Spinal Cord Injury.
    • MS.
    • Guillian-Barre.
    • Cerebral Palsy.
    • ALS.

    • Parkinsons Disease.
    • An injury to the lower leg or foot.
    • Diabetes.
  • The onset of the injury does not prevent someone from receiving Saebo treatment. Whether the client just had a stroke or other injury causing foot drop, or if he or she suffered the injury years ago, the SaeboStep can be of great benefit.

What can I (or my patient) expect?

  • Once the client dons the SaeboStep and adjusts the tension to meet their specific needs, they will be able to immediately lift the front of their foot to avoid dragging the toes when walking.
  • The SaeboStep can be worn comfortably with the majority of male or female shoe styles. Saebo offers an accessory kit which allows the eyelets to attach to shoes that don’t have laces.
  • With the foot being lifted, the client will experience added support needed to improve walking ability and increase overall safety, as well as less fatigue and compensation.
  • You do not need a therapist to order the SaeboStep.
