What is the SaeboStim Micro?

  • 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.

Enhance, Augment, Intensify.
Improve recovery with added stimulation.

  1. Richard L.

    We have several Saebo devices the Stim Micro and Stretch, both are working well and are contributing to my wife’s recovery.

  2. Regina Boyington (verified owner)

    We purchased this device for our brother who had a stroke with paralysis on the left side. He had total neglect of left arm, no movement. After 3- 30 minute session and 1 8 hr night application, he is able to weakly grip your hand and pull hi s fist toward him and push it away. We are very excited about this product. Will keep everyone posted.

  3. Kevin M.

    It’s too early for me to tell you what I will gain but I can feel it working.

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.
  • 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:
    • Spasticity.
    • Arm and/or hand pain.
    • Arm and/or hand edema.
    • 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, 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 SaeboStim Pro for strengthening and the Micro for decreasing spasticity and improving muscle re-education. Of course, this will help with reducing swelling, and pain 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.

Indications

The SaeboStim Micro is commonly recommended to patients by Neurologists, Orthopedic Surgeons, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Chiropractors, and other Physicians and Health Care Practitioners, and should be purchased on their order for use in the treatment and management of pain, spasticity, or similar concerns associated with neurological injuries.

  • Spasticity.
  • Arm and/or hand pain.
  • Arm and/or hand edema.

Improve Function. Improve Life.

Impaired function from a neurological injury such as stroke may result in both sensory and motor deficits. Limited use of the hand or arm can typically lead to impaired sensory communication to the brain (touch, feel, aware of joint movement). With SES, the main goal is to maximize input by providing stimulation at very low-level (i.e., without producing a muscle contraction). Improved outcomes are associated with increased excitability of the affected hemisphere. Interventions that focus on re-balancing the communication between both hemispheres are likely to lead to improved recovery. Priming is a technique used to enhance the brain’s ability to re-balance the 2 hemispheres following a stroke. Priming interventions include invasive and non-invasive techniques and can be administered prior to or during therapy.
