A stroke can take a seemingly healthy and vibrant individual and change their life in an instant. Learning how to do basic daily tasks, such as self-feeding or getting dressed each day, can quickly feel like an overwhelming physical hurdle. Despite having full active movement in your affected hand, you may have decreased strength and dexterity in your hand due to your stroke. This may be making it difficult to grasp and release objects, making daily tasks seem like insurmountable obstacles. We will show you some helpful hand exercises for stroke recovery to help you reclaim your strength and dexterity.
Unfortunately, sometimes rehab does not bring back full control and use of your hands, making these daily tasks a tremendous challenge. While you begin your recovery it’s crucial that you incorporate hand exercises for stroke recovery into your daily life to bring back dexterity and use of your fingers.

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.”

On Mar 22, 2014 at 42 years of age, Pao experienced a sudden onset of right-sided weakness and loss of ability to speak intelligibly. A CT scan confirmed he had a brain hemorrhage. At that time, Pao had a wife, 6 children, and a full-time job managing a department. He loved to tinker, build and could fix anything around the house. In a moment, he lost the ability to fulfill any of his prior roles.
After an extensive inpatient rehab stay, in August, an OT in my clinic evaluated him. The evaluation indicated that he had virtually no strength in his right arm except for a slight ability to shrug his shoulder. In addition, he exhibited right shoulder subluxation which was painful. He could follow directions but could not say anything in either of the languages he was fluent in.

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.
