FAQs

What is the SaeboStretch?

The SaeboStretch is a revolutionary, new, award-winning dynamic hand splint for individuals suffering from neurological injuries, such as stroke. The splint helps to prevent joint damage while improving and maintaining range of motion.

How is the SaeboStretch different from current splints?

Protects your Joints:

  • Traditional splints are made from hard/rigid material that do not allow for any movement of the fingers. The SaeboStretch has a unique dynamic hand piece that allows the fingers to move through flexion due to increased tone. The same stretch technology safely repositions the fingers into extension. The SaeboStretch includes three different hand pieces that offer various grades of resistance so you can further match your patient’s specific needs.

Positions the Hand:

The SaeboStretch provides maximum positioning utilizing the following:

  • Proprietary new strapping system that utilizes key anatomical points of control to maximize control and insure an intimate fit.
  • Malleable wrist and thumb mount allows the therapist to further customize the fit.
  • New non-slip strap material and design helps facilitate keeping the fingers in the desired position.
  • Breeth-O-Preen covering allows moisture to wick away, enhancing skin integrity and hygiene.
  • Palmer arch padding to help maintain the integrity of the palmer arch.

How can I order the SaeboStretch?

If you would like to order the SaeboStretch, please have your therapist or orthotist contact us for order information. A licensed occupational/physical therapist or a certified orthotist must fit you with the SaeboStretch. Please feel free to contact us if you are not aware of any clinicians in your area.

How does it work?

  • The SaeboStretch uses a revolutionary stretch technology, which allows the fingers to move through flexion caused by abnormal reflexes and increased tightness of the hand. Following relaxation, the fingers gradually return to the desired resting position.
  • The stretch technology assists in preventing or reducing joint damage and pain. With hard static splints, there is increased pressure at the finger joints. The dynamic, flexible SaeboStretch hand plates reduce the pressure at the joints by allowing the hand plates to bend with the fingers when the tone increases.
  • The SaeboStretch includes three interchangeable dynamic hand pieces that can accommodate various levels of spasticity. These hand pieces allow it to be beneficial for varying degrees of stiffness. It also gives you the option to decrease the resistance as you begin to improve.
  • The SaeboStretch has a unique, durable, and comfortable strapping system, designed to maximize finger positioning and keep the fingers in place during movement.
  • The wrist and thumb support components are easily bendable. The SaeboStretch places the wrist and fingers in a position that is best for the client and accommodates changes as they progress.
  • The SaeboStretch is made of soft and flexible materials.  This allows the client to wear it for numerous hours and while sleeping to obtain the maximum benefits and preserves the integrity of the skin.

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

  • Normally, clients that have suffered a neurological injury such as stroke, develop increased tightness in the hand, known as contractures. If the hand is not maintained in an optimal position, over time the muscles can shorten leading to contractures. Contractures can become painful and further limit the ability to regain hand function as one recovers.
  • The SaeboStretch is designed for individuals that have experienced a neurological injury such as stroke, head injury and spinal cord injury.
  • The SaeboStretch benefits clients whose hand has minimal to moderate stiffness but is able to open their hand flat with assistance.
  •  SaeboStretch is an excellent splint to be used preventatively. If a client has just suffered a neurological injury, has no stiffness, and their hand is loose, the SaeboStretch can help prevent stiffness by keeping the hand in a resting and stretched, functional position.
  • For consistent users, results can be seen immediately and pain decreases at a quicker rate. For others, results may vary and require more time.
  • SaeboStretch is made of a removable and washable material allowing it to be easily cleaned after regular use.

What can I (or my patient) expect?

  • Once the client receives the SaeboStretch, his or her therapist will create a wearing schedule that is optimal for the client and best meets his or her needs.
  • You can gradually increase the wearing time of the SaeboStretch. The client initially wears the splint during the day and once that is tolerated well, he or she can begin to wear the splint at night.
  • Since the SaeboStretch comes with interchangeable plates, they are able to customize the resistance specifically to their changing needs.
  • The SaeboStretch has a soft and flexible strapping system that is attached to the hand piece. This prevents straps from getting lost and also allows for greater ease for the client to don the splint, which increases wearing compliance.
  • Over time, the client will notice their hand in a more relaxed position, which reduces pain and allows the hand to participate in more therapeutic activities.

What are the contraindications?

  • Clients that may not be appropriate for the SaeboStretch typically exhibit one or more of the below:
    • Severe joint deformities of the hand may not be appropriate.
    • Severe tightness in the hand and wrist.
    • Severe swelling in the hand or wrist.
    • Open wounds or compromised skin integrity.

Indications

  • Normally, clients that have suffered a neurological injury, such as stroke, develop increased tightness in the hand known as contractures. If the hand is not maintained in an optimal position, over time the muscles can shorten, leading to contractures. Contractures can become painful and further limit the ability to regain hand function as one recovers.
  • The SaeboStretch is designed for individuals that have experienced a neurological injury such as stroke, head injury, and spinal cord injury.
  • In order to qualify for the SaeboStretch, clients must exhibit moderate stiffness or less. They must able to open their hand completely flat (with their wrist at neutral) with assistance.

Contraindications

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

  • Severe joint deformities of the hand may not be appropriate.
  • Severe tightness in the hand and wrist.
  • Severe swelling in the hand or wrist.
  • Open wounds or compromised skin integrity.

Give your Joints a Break. Prevent pain and damage while improving motion.

The SaeboStretch overcomes clinical concerns that can result from traditional hard static splints including joint damage, hypermobility, and contractures. This novel splint uses a revolutionary stretch technology, which allows the fingers to move through flexion caused by associated reactions and increased tone. Following relaxation, the fingers gradually return to the desired resting position. Contracture is a loss of motion over time due to abnormal shortening of the soft tissue structures spanning one or more joints. These include skin, ligaments, tendon, muscles and joint capsules. Loss of motion in any of the structures restricts joint mobility leading to pain, stiffness and eventually contracture.
