The SaeboStretch

The SaeboStretch:

The revolutionary SaeboStretch dynamic resting hand splint helps neurologically-impaired clients maintain or improve motion while minimizing joint damage and pain.
Saebo’s energy-storing technology allows individuals suffering from spasticity to stretch comfortably and safely resulting in increased motivation and compliance.
The SaeboStretch includes three interchangeable dynamic handpieces that can accommodate various levels of Spasticity.

I recently watched a video on YouTube, that basically downplayed the effectiveness of this product.  The SaeboStretch is mainly a RESTING HAND SPLINT, that is most beneficial when you are in a resting position, such as sitting, or in lying in bed at night, without exerting extreme stress on your body, following a Neurological injury such as a Stroke, TBI, or ABI, and even a client living with MS, ALS, or CP. 

If applied correctly, with the straps in the correct position, the SaeboStetch should be in the same position, protecting and stretching your hand when you sleep, while offering protection to joints and tendons, and even keeping your wrist in a functional position.  How can I be so confident?  I wore the SaeboStretch every night while I slept for 5 years following my second stroke in 2 weeks back in 2016.  The SaeboStretch helped save my hand, wrist and fingers.  Actually, the pictures above are of my SaeboStretch and my hand, 6 years post strokes.  The Thumb should be adjusted out a little more to be correct, ( I just noticed this now when I was looking at the pictures ).  The webbing between the thumb and index finger should be tight, or close to tight, and the tab on the thumb plate bent over toward the thumb, keeping it in place.  From what I have seen in the past 7 years since my Strokes, the SaeboStretch, is hands down, the best, most effective Resting Hand Splint on the market today, and worth a few extra dollars.

The SaeboStretch can be applied by yourself, but it is much more effective when applied, or donned by someone else while you are resting.  I found that if I used Electrical Muscle Stimulation on my Arm, Wrist and Fingers, for 30 minutes before bed made donning the SaeboStretch much easier.  Taking three deep breaths before Jane put the SaeboStretch on my arm, made a huge difference as well.  Taking three deep breaths, will relax the muscles in your body.  Try it, it actually works.
