Physiotherapy using the SaeboFlex
You will initially be assessed for a SaeboFlex by one of our experienced physiotherapists to see if it is suitable for you.
The SaeboFlex will then be integrated into your treatment program which may involve:

- Range of movement exercises
- Stretching exercises
The SaeboFlex allows many people with different neurological conditions to immediately begin using their hand for functional grasp and release activities and has proven results. It does however require a high level of commitment from its users in order to maximise results.
