“I have been using the SaeboStim Micro in an outpatient rehabilitation setting and I am absolutely amazed by the immediate results. It works extremely well with patients diagnosed with central cord syndrome/spinal cord injury who have upper extremity sensory and motor loss. It also works well for the management of pain and sensory disturbance due to complex regional pain syndrome. Several patients have purchased their own SaeboStim Micro for home use and report weekly improvements in hand sensation. The SaeboStim Micro is an affordable choice and a great addition to an upper extremity sensory home program.”

My name is Becky Carter, and I am an Occupational Therapist at Scenic Mountain Medical Center in Big Spring, Texas. I had the opportunity to trial the Saebo MyoTrac Infiniti with 2 outpatients that I am currently working with. One of the patients is an 18-year-old male who suffered a spinal cord injury with resulting C4-C5 incomplete quadriplegia. This patient is a very motivated young man who was an athlete prior to his injury. He was and is very competitive, even with himself. He absolutely loved the Saebo MyoTrac Infiniti because it gave him visual feedback while he was performing exercises. He enjoyed challenging himself to see if he could make the readings go higher toward the end of an exercise. This patient has had his second round of stem cell transplants, and the neurologist used the readings I provided from the Saebo MyoTrac Infiniti as a way of gauging his improved upper extremity strength before and after stem cell treatments.

Following a neurological injury or disease, 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.

Medical treatments save lives. Stroke victims who seek immediate treatment have the best chance to survive and eventually recover. But non-fatal strokes often have long-term debilitating consequences. Patients may require extensive therapy from skilled occupational therapists to reclaim their ability to speak, be mobile, and simply function in their daily lives.

While everyday objects like clothespins and cups still play crucial roles in most patients’ journeys toward recovery, new technology is constantly changing the rehabilitation game. From video chats with doctors to robotic gloves and interactive video games, stroke recovery and rehabilitation tools have come a long way in the past decade. This new stroke recovery technology is helping link neuroplasticity and learning. A key part in recovery from a stroke.
This new stroke technology gives patients more repetitions, practice time and intensity compared to previous movement trainings. Not to mention this new technology is also more interactive, attention grabbing and really helps motivate the patient. These new technologies are really helping harness the brain’s ability to repair itself in ways that haven’t been seen before.

Every stroke is different, and every patient’s stroke recovery experience is, too. Just as your symptoms depend on the severity of the stroke and treatment you received, your ability to regain certain functions and work toward recovery will also depend on a variety of different physical factors. However, it helps to know a little more about what to expect in the days and weeks ahead.
You’ve learned about the different stages of stroke recovery, but in order to simplify this experience and improve recovery odds, it’s important to understand more about each stage. If a patient or loved one has recently experienced a stroke and lost motor control on one side of their body, they’re probably in Stage 1 of their recovery process.
But what exactly does “Stage 1” mean, and how can patients and their caregivers navigate this first chapter of the journey toward recovery? Let’s start by breaking down the nature of this first stage. After you understand the basics of your Stage 1 progress, start applying some of the most helpful recovery techniques to reach the second stage.
