Functional splinting for neurological injuries can help stroke patients regain function in their hands. Stroke is the leading cause of serious, long-term disabilities in the United States and affects over 700,000 Americans every year. Forty percent of all stroke patients have moderate to severe impairment including loss of hand function. The Saebo brace is designed to help stroke victims regain the most use of their affected hand.
Saebo is the leading global provider for innovative rehabilitation products for stroke survivors and other neurologically impaired individuals. A Saebo certified occupational therapist is able to customize a brace for qualified neurological patients to help regain some function of the hand through a motor retraining program. Occupational therapists with additional certification are trained in assessing patients to ensure they will benefit from using a Saebo brace. They are able to incorporate certified treatment protocols into therapy treatments for optimal benefit.
