What is Saebo upper limb rehabilitation?
Saebo upper limb rehabilitation involves using Saebo products for people with arm weakness as a result of neurological conditions, to improve independence with everyday activities such as dressing, washing and eating.
Saebo products are functional dynamic neurological orthotics designed by neurological specialists to help people with limited arm and hand function begin to reach, grasp and manipulate objects in daily tasks.
Your physiotherapist at Physio.co.uk will initially assess your upper limb function to see if Saebo is suitable for you.
Your Saebo orthotic will then be incorporated into a structured treatment program which may include:
- Repetitive task practice involving grasp and release
- Practising functional activities such as dressing, grasping different objects
- Activities to promote fine motor control, dexterity and coordination
Our neurological physiotherapists at Physio.co.uk often encourage parents, teachers or family members to join in therapy sessions to help maintain carry over and participation with therapy at home. In this case your physiotherapist will teach family or carers techniques and exercises to facilitate movement during non-therapy sessions.
