SaeboStim Micro

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 3 customer ratings
(3 customer reviews)

The SaeboStim Micro provides sensory electrical stimulation (SES) to the arm and hand using a specialized Electro-Mesh Garment. The unique Electro-Mesh material is not only soft and comfortable to wear at rest, but also during activities.

The garments consist of an elbow sleeve (arm stimulation) and glove (hand stimulation). The material is highly conductive and is made of silver treated nylon fibers blended with Dacron®. The stimulation is delivered into the elbow sleeve and glove by a uniquely designed stimulator. Clients suffering from impaired function, weakness, and spasticity can benefit from the much-needed stimulation.

  • Electro-Mesh sleeve distributes stimulation over a large portion of the upper arm and elbow.
  • World’s smallest stimulator offers advanced protocols for day and night-time use.
  • Stimulator attachment provides quick and convenient access to the unit during activities and at rest.

Indications:
The SaeboStim Micro is designed for individuals that have had injuries that result in:

  • Limited arm and hand function.
  • Spasticity.
  • Arm and/or hand pain.
  • Arm and/or hand edema.
  • Decreased sensation.
  • Inattention or neglect.
  • Temperature changes in the hand.

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 SaeboStim Micro can be of great benefit.

Contraindications:
Clients that may not be appropriate for the SaeboStim Micro typically exhibit one or more of the below:

  • Severe joint deformities in the hand.
  • Not to be used over heart, carotid sinus nerves, or across the head.
  • Patients with cardiac arrhythmias or disturbances.
  • Avoid use on areas of skin with recent scar tissue.
  • Swollen, infected, or inflamed areas where the garment would be worn.
  • Open wounds.
  • Unable to follow basic commands.

  1. Rated 4 out of 5

    I began following a patient with major sensory loss on the left side one year following his stroke. I decided to try the SaeboStim Micro to see if it would help. Over a period of several weeks he consistently demonstrated the ability to find his thumb in space. Once applied, the SaeboStim Micro “goes to work.” Based on this patient’s response to the SaeboStim Micro, I will definitely try it with future patients whose motor function is affected by impaired sensation.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    After just two weeks of working with the Saebo Stim micro, my patient was able to brush his teeth with the affected arm! He was in awe and astonished by what was happening. He can now sense the difference between hot and cold based on surface immersion.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    Within one week of using the SaeboStim Micro, I noticed significant improvement in my hand sensitivity. My occupational therapist recently gave me a temperature test with ice and I identified the location of the ice on my hand with 50% accuracy. I never could have done that before… I know from the research that sensitivity is a precursor to function, so I am hopeful that I will continue to see improvement in my ability to use my hand over time. This is the first improvement I have had in over a year, so it’s pretty exciting!

SaeboGlove FAQs

How does it work?

  • Following a neurological injury, it is common for clients to experience impaired arm and hand function resulting in decreased sensation and/or strength.
  • If the arm has limited use, this may lead to impaired communication to the brain, which includes sense of touch, feel, or awareness of movement.
  • Unfortunately, most clients do not receive enough training or stimulation to the affected side which is needed to maximize recovery. For this reason, the SaeboStim Micro is the perfect solution to add to the recovery tool box.
  • The SaeboStim Micro provides low-level sensory stimulation to the arm and hand to improve motor and sensory recovery and help cortical reorganization. Cortical reorganization refers to the brain’s ability to reorganize its neural pathways which are needed to complete a movement or task.
  • Keep in mind that low-level sensory stimulation does not produce a muscle contraction, yet still provides stimulation to the arm and hand, which increases the signals sent to the brain. These signals excite the brain and help to improve recovery.
  • The SaeboStim Micro consists of 3 components.
    • The first component is a glove and arm garment made out of Electro-Mesh conductive material, which consists of silver treated nylon and Dacron fibers. This material is soft and comfortable and can be worn either at rest or during daily functional activities, and provides stimulation to the hand and arm.
    • The second component is the world’s smallest stimulator, complete with an LCD display screen and push button controls. The stimulator controls the intensity of the stimulation that is sent to the arm and hand via the lead wires.
    • The last components are the black and red lead wires that go from the stimulator and attach to the glove and arm sleeve. They are the pathways that provide the electrical current, which you control.

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

  • The SaeboStim Micro is designed for individuals that have had injuries that result in:
    • Limited arm and hand function.
    • Spasticity.
    • Arm and/or hand pain.
    • Arm and/or hand edema.
    • Decreased sensation.
    • Inattention or neglect.
    • Temperature changes in the hand.
  • Some diagnoses that may benefit from use of the SaeboStim Micro include but are not limited to:
    • Stroke.
    • Traumatic Brain Injury.
    • Spinal cord injury.
    • MS.
    • Guillian-Barre.
    • ALS.
    • Brachial plexus injuries.
    • Hand injuries.
    • RSD or CRPS.
    • Raynaud’s.
  • 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 SaeboStim Micro can be of great benefit.

What can I (or my patient) expect?

  • You do not need a therapist to order the SaeboStim Micro. The device will require a script from the client’s physician, however.
  • The SaeboStim Micro is easy to apply and use, following the simple steps outlined in the manual. The manual also outlines different program settings to accommodate specific needs.
  • The client will be in full control of the settings. Once the device is turned on, as he or she will feel a mild tingling sensation as the intensity increases.  The client can also reduce the intensity so stimulation is not felt. Don’t worry, the device is still working behind the scenes. Although you do not feel the tingling, the stimulation is still penetrating the skin and current is being delivered to the targeted areas.
  • The purpose of this device is not to produce movement in your hand. The purpose is to provide very low-level stimulation which will travel deep into your tissues and up to your brain.
  • This form of “non-movement” stimulation will assist in healing and improve areas such as spasticity, pain, function, skin temperature, just to name a few.
  • The SaeboStim Micro is designed to be worn either at rest or during functional tasks.
  • SaeboStim Micro hand glove covers the entire hand for full stimulation.
  • Like all medical treatments, the amount of recovery cannot be guaranteed; however, clients that are motivated and compliant with the daily home program tend to have better outcomes.
  • Questions/comments for the client:
    • How are you spending your day training your arm and hand?
    • Are you stimulating your hand enough?
    • You will not only need a SaeboGlove or Flex to train your hand functionally, but you will also need the Aviva for strengthening and the Micro for decreasing spasticity and improving cortical reorganization. Of course, this will help with reducing swelling, pain, or sensation should those be issues as well.

What are the contraindications?

  • Clients that may not be appropriate for the SaeboStim Micro typically exhibit one or more of the below:
    • Severe joint deformities in the hand.
    • Not to be used over heart, carotid sinus nerves or across the head.
    • Patients with cardiac arrhythmias or disturbances.
    • Avoid use on areas of skin with recent scar tissue.
    • Swollen, infected, or inflamed areas where the garment would be worn.
    • Open wounds.
    • Unable to follow basic commands.
