How does the SaeboReach work?

How does the SaeboReach work?

Following a neurological trauma many people are left with impaired upper limbs. The reason for this impairment is due both to the neurological damage and also the secondary imbalances due to immobility that cause tightening of soft tissues such as muscles, ligaments and tendons and reduced muscle strength.

The SaeboReach uses a system of elasticated cords and springs to assist with; opening of the hand, extending the wrist, and straightening the elbow. The SaeboReach assists patients to use their own muscles to close the hand and straighten the elbow; resulting in a functional arm.

The SaeboReach, along with an intensive rehabilitation programme, is highly effective for maximizing arm and hand recovery. The SaeboReach is similar to the SaeboFlex but also includes a custom-made above-elbow attachment.

The SaeboReach not only rehabilitates the affected wrist and hand but also the elbow. The orthoses consists of the SaeboFlex and an above-elbow component. The SaeboReach is ideal for neurologically affected arms where both the hand and elbow have been affected.

The SaeboReach was developed to work alongside the SaeboFlex because function does not stop with the wrist and hand. The SaeboReach assists children who are unable to extend their elbow during functional activities to do so. This makes improvements possible at the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand.
