SaeboFlex Helps Client Regain Hand Function 23 Years After Stroke

SaeboFlex

Stroke survivor exhibits remarkable improvement in hand function more than two decades after stroke, disproving theories that recovery window is limited to 6 months. 

Charlotte, N.C. – Tuesday, July 25, 2017 – Until recently, researchers believed that if a stroke survivor exhibited no improvement within the first 6 months, then he or she would have little to no chance of regaining motor function in the future. This assumed end of recovery is called a plateau. However, a groundbreaking new article published in the Journal of Neurophysiology discusses a stroke patient’s remarkable improvement decades after suffering a stroke at the age of 15. Doctors Peter Sörös, Robert Teasell, Daniel F. Hanley, and J. David Spence formally dismiss previous theories that stroke recovery occurs within 6 months, reporting that the patient experienced “recovery of hand function that began 23 years after the stroke.”

Dobbin SaeboFlex Testimonial

“After learning to put on and take off my SaeboFlex independently, it opened up a large window of opportunity to use my left hand functionally at home, on my own. The SaeboFlex gave me the ability to grasp and release various items with my affected hand. Being able to wear the SaeboFlex more often during the day seemed to aid the muscle tone in my wrist and hand to become more balanced.

The results are phenomenal…my clients can see that they themselves are accomplishing tasks.

Dorothee Z.

Over the years, working as an occupational therapist, I have watched more than a dozen clients progress with the use of the SaeboGlove and the SaeboFlex. My clients love the SaeboGlove. The feedback I receive and the results are phenomenal. The glove is lightweight and the rubber fingertips enable my clients to grip objects more easily. The SaeboGlove allows people the freedom of feeling what it’s like to open and close their hands again – all by themselves, without my assistance or the use of electrical stimulation. My clients can see that they themselves are accomplishing tasks. Being able to use an extremity for the first time after an injury increases the client’s motivation, determination, and hope, which in turn allows for high repetition of meaningful tasks. This will assist in facilitating neuroplastic changes in the nervous system.

My Love Story with Saebo

Stroke Patient Testimonial With Saebo

Testimonial from AnnaMaria Baraglia

My love story with Saebo began in October 2008.  I was just released from in-patient rehab to a day rehab.  The day rehab was 3 hours a day for 3 days a week.  My rehabilitation plan was for speech therapy, occupational therapy, and physical therapy.  The therapy trifecta!  I was still in the early stages of my stroke recovery, so my brain was in the prime to be rewired.  I was making small gains here and there, but recovery was SLOW.  I really was getting discouraged.  From an athletic 27 year old woman that spent multiple hours in the gym, went to a 27 year old woman that wasn’t able to really walk, dress herself, or remember what I just ate.  It was frustrating!!!
