Product Description

Features:

  • Patented stretch technology with three interchangeable energy-storing hand plates.
  • Proprietary strapping system that utilizes key anatomical points of control to maximize control and insure an intimate fit.
  • Malleable wrist and thumb mount allows to further customize the fit.
  • Comfortable non-slip cover and straps to keep fingers in the desired position.
  • Straps sewn to cover to maximize proper positioning and ease of donning.
  • Adjustable thumb system to allow for radial and palmar adduction/abduction.
  • Special padding to help maintain the integrity of the palmer arch.
  • Cover features a zipper closure which can easily be removed for cleaning.

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.

  1. Dee S.

    Excellent products and excellent customer service.

  2. Roger W.

    I like the device however I find it difficult putting it on when I am alone.

  3. Sara P.

    Ordering my splint was easy and convenient. The customer service associate who helped me was awesome.

  4. Roger W

    My OT and I have determined that splint does not work for me. We will return before end of 30 day trial for credit.

    I couldn’t leave 4.5 stars on my phone, so I gave it 5 Stars. I’d like to commend Kristen Conway on getting the stuff I need and sending it to me in good time. The only reason I went a half a star is because two times (one for the saebostretch glove and one for the saebostim) I didn’t get what I ordered. Specifically when I ordered the glove for the saebostretch, they sent me the wrong glove. I know everyone makes mistakes so no bother at all. Sent it back and Kristen sent the right one, so that was all good. The second time, I asked specifically for the leads for the saebostim and a larger arm cuff to go around my elbow. They sent the leads just fine, but they sent me a glove instead of the arm sleeve. I looked at the order and it said clear as day “arm sleeve.” All in all, I think what you are doing for the stroke survivor community is a great thing, and I can’t wait till your inventors think of a new device that can help me get stronger. Take care and good work 👊🏻.

    This brace is great. I was in a wreck about 8 months ago that left my right arm paralyzed. My hand is already trying to contract. I ordered this brace about 2 months ago to see if it would help prevent my hand from contracting. My husband had to help me initially to get the brace formed to the correct position but now I am able to put it on by myself with my left hand. It is very comfortable and keeps my hand in a natural position with my fingers straight. I am also very pleased because I feel like I have more control of my arm when I’m wearing it….. normally my hand and arm is just flacid but when I have it on it holds my arm straight like it should be instead of just flopping around. I can already tell that my fingers are a little straighter and I don’t even where it as much as I should. It really is helping prevent “wrist drop” and contractures from developing in my fingers, thumb and wrist. Also it’s not big and bulky looking and all the straps keep it in place like it is supposed to be. Sometimes I even sleep in it. I am very happy with this purchase. It was definately worth the money and I would recommend it to others who are having similar issues.

  7. Paul

    Although the Saebo Stretch was not applicable to my spinal cord injury, it was well made and support from Saebo was good.

  8. Rachelle R

    Thank you so much for making this and all your products. It has helped me out so much. Thank you

  9. Arthur D

    Yeah I’m trying to learn how to use it

  10. Charles P.

    No one can remove cover on stretch for hand, was told to take to pt, still un able to remove cover zipper opening is to small

  11. William H.

    I really like the operational design of both products I bought from Saebo. The Saebo Step is simple and effective to use. The Saebo Stretch is very effective in helping to keep the fingers stay flat and is relatively easier to put on vs. other ones I’ve used. Both products certainly look like they will last a long time.

  12. Pamela C.

    Not as difficult to put on as another resting hand splint I have. I havent noticed sny change in the tightness of my fingers yet.

  13. Jayne

    I had one of these shortly after my stroke. Unfortunately, I did not benefit from using it. Still have major tone in my hand.

  14. Zoe R.

    The Saebo stretch has worked miracles for me! I wear it for most of the day and sometimes at night. It has given me so much relief with my tone that I can finally stop Botox! I’ve also been able to access the Saebo Flex with this. Highly recommend

  15. Bob W.

    Got mine last week, I can already see some improvement

  16. linda b.

    Saebo stretch was just a part of my treatment. I was also getting Botox injections for my left hand. I wore it every night for six months. Donning it myself. Great brace.

  17. Jeffrey D.

    I have worked with Saebo products – more specifically, the SaeboStretch and SaeboFlex – for at least seven years. I absolutely recommend them for all healthcare practitioners as Saebo products are unique in many ways. They are easy for patients to use, which is paramount to prevent patients from discontinuing its use. The SaeboStretch is sturdy and built to last, yet it can also be molded and repositioned to accommodate individual patients’ needs which will improve positioning, comfort and protection of the skin.

  18. Cindy k.

    Your products help me so much. Looking to get the drop foot & Saebo glove. Already have the night splint & I love it

  19. C.S.

    Thanks to the SaeboStretch, I am starting to be able to stretch my fingers out again. My physical therapist had never heard of Saebo and she is amazed at the progress I am now making. She is absolutely impressed. I alternate wearing the SaeboStretch at night and the Stim Micro during the day. Sometimes I even wear them at the same time. I am very pleased with the results I have gotten in such a short period of time and I hope this is just the beginning.

  20. Mariah

    The SaeboStretch is designed with a more forgiving platform than most orthotics, making it comfortable to wear. Through therapy, I have regained most of my previous functionality. I’ve adapted to using my left hand as my dominant hand, and my right side continues to progress. I’m less efficient than I used to be and still get very tired, but I’m much better off than I was a year and a half ago.

  21. Laura Conner

    Now that I have seen and used this product, it seems obvious that a neuro-patient should not be in a static splint. Yet, that is what all of us OTs did for years! When my patients use the SaeboStretch, I see improved compliance with splint wear and improved soft tissue lengthening. A number of my patients actually LIKE their Stretches.

SaeboGlove 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.
