As a result of having polio as a young child, I suffer from post-polio syndrome. In order to address some of my symptoms I had spinal cord surgery one year ago. I knew in advance of my surgery that my right arm function might be affected and indeed it was. I have had extreme weakness in my right arm and difficulty opening my hand. Although I had received an electrical stimulating device as a therapy tool, I was unable to apply it to my hand because I couldn’t keep the hand open. I was frustrated to have an expensive piece of medical equipment rendered useless because I couldn’t use it.

My son Tavion suffered a grade four brain bleed at birth. As a result, he has struggled with right side hemiplegia his entire life. Over the course of his eleven years, he has become the king of doing things one-sided. It was nearly impossible to get him to use his right hand in play, at school or in daily tasks. This started to change three months ago when Tavion received a SaeboGlove.

In some cases, this pain is chronic, leaving survivors with constant discomfort and hypersensitivity. Let’s walk through the common types of pain that stroke survivors experience, and introduce the tools and therapeutic techniques that were designed to reduce it and restore mobility.

My name is Jena Bohl, and I’ve been an Occupational Therapist for 5 years.
I have been working in outpatient neurological rehab for almost three years at HonorHealth (formerly Scottsdale Healthcare) in Scottsdale, AZ. During this time, I have been using Saebo products including the SaeboReach, Flex, Glide, Stretch, MAS, and trialed the MyoTrac Infiniti for 2 weeks. I most recently received the 2-week, free trial for the SaeboGlove to use with a patient.

I just wanted to tell you and Saebo how much we appreciate your generous support of our son – Gabriel’s treatment and recovery. I must admit, when you called I was waiting for the “catch” after you said you would be providing the SaeboGlove to our family. When we realized there was no catch, we were shocked. We are truly humbled by your willingness to support of someone you do not even know.

I am Kevin Breveleri, and I am 34 years old. I was born with a rare heart defect called L Transposition of the Great Anterior Vessels. Because of this, I have had 3 mitral valve replacements in addition to 8 pacemaker surgeries.
I had a stroke when I was 21 years old due to complications from my heart condition which caused a blood clot to go to my head. After my stroke I couldn’t walk, talk, or use my right hand.

As President of Everest Healthcare, I know from personal experience that Saebo products not only give patients the ability to perform tasks with their affected hand that they could not otherwise with other physiotherapy options, but also restore hope that they may be able to regain functionality.
One of my patients in his early thirties was delighted to perform grasp and release activities using the SaeboFlex for the first time since his stroke several months ago. For a young person seeking to regain employment and become financially independent again, functionality is essential. The SaeboFlex provides tremendous hope to patients of such possibilities.
