Treatment options are limited for neurological patients who cannot efficiently incorporate their hand for functional grasp and release activities.
Saebo’s dynamic functional orthoses are designed for neurologically impaired individuals. These orthoses include SaeboGlove, SaeboFlex, SaeboStretch and SaeboReach. For example, the vast majority of stroke survivors, head injury and incomplete spinal cord injury patients do not exhibit sufficient active wrist and finger extension to allow the hand to be functional. The SaeboFlex has the biomechanical advantage in allowing grasp and release activities for individuals with moderate to severe hemiparesis.
Watch how Henry Hoffman, co-founder of Saebo, discusses what the Saebo Program consists of as well as who is a candidate for this technology.
Phoenix has a Saebo trained Certified Hand Therapist who can help you regain your independence and improve the functional use of your hand.
Both my husband and my daughter have benefited greatly from the awesome care, positive environment, and overall professionalism at Phoenix Physical Therapy in Scott Twp. We give them 5 stars!
