Dear Friends at Saebo:
As a practicing OT, I want to acknowledge the impact that your wonderful products have had on our therapy sessions here at the Peg Taylor Center for Adult Day Health Care. Talk about motivation!
Participants who love new technologies are especially doing well over conventional hands-on therapy alone. Continuous verbal reminders are no longer needed for those with attention and focus needs; instead, they are automatically focusing and sustaining attention for longer times without much prompting or verbal cues. Repetitions increase, thereby increasing memory of motion, strength, AROM, and awareness of their affected side. Most strikingly, being able to engage in goal-directed activities has enhanced participants’ self-esteem, helping to ensure a well-rounded, individualized therapy program.
Thank you, Saebo staff, from the bottom of our hearts!
Joy Mukai, OTL/R
