- 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.
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.
