CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Saebo, Inc., a medical device company specializing in affordable, evidence-based clinical solutions designed to improve mobility and function, announced today that their flagship product, SaeboFlex, a revolutionary hand device for neurological clients, is part of a Medicine Galleries exhibit at the Science Museum in London. Medical innovations from the extraordinary collection of Henry Wellcome and the Science Museum Group are now on public display in the world's largest space dedicated to the history of medicine.
The SaeboFlex, a breakthrough hand product designed for individuals suffering from neurological injuries such as stroke, allows patients the ability to incorporate their arm and hand functionally. The SaeboFlex, sold to over 50 countries around the world, is based on the latest advances in neurorehabilitation research documenting the brain's ability to "re-program" itself through high-repetition, functional training. Each year, thousands of patients world-wide with impaired hand function are able to take advantage of the latest research by using the Saebo's technology to further exercise and challenge their affected hand in therapy or at home.
"It is such an honor to have the SaeboFlex on permanent public display at the prestigious Science Museum along with other significant historical medical artefacts spanning hundreds of years," stated Henry Hoffman, Co-Founder of Saebo.
"During the development of the SaeboFlex, fellow co-founder, John Farrell, and I saw the immediate potential of such a game-changing therapeutic device for clients with impaired hand function. Prior to the SaeboFlex, treatment options for the arm and hand were ineffective and marginal. Many neurological patients were living a one-handed life and were told that they had 'plateaued' and no further gains could be made. The advent of the SaeboFlex was not only a complete paradigm shift for therapists, as it profoundly transformed how clinicians treated neurologically impaired clients, it also offered new-found hope and success for thousands of patients world-wide," Hoffman concluded.
Use of the SaeboFlex is now taught in occupational therapy schools world-wide, and it is considered the "standard of care" for stroke rehabilitation.
