The cutting edge SaeboGlove helps clients suffering from neurological and orthopaedic injuries incorporate their hand functionally in therapy and everyday tasks at home. The tension system extends the users fingers and thumb following grasping, and can be easily adjusted as required. The lightweight, low-profile functional design allows comfortable wear and usage throughout the day.

You may not be appropriate for the SaeboGlove if you exhibit one or more of the below:
|Dimensions||9 × 8 × 2.8 in|
The SaeboGlove is an orthoses with an elasticated tension system that extends the clients fingers and thumb following grasping. The spiral forearm design supports and secures the wrist for individuals exhibiting wrist drop.
The SaeboFlex is a high profile, out-rigger style splint made from durable rigid parts used to support and assist individuals with increased spasticity during exercise. The SaeboGlove is a low profile splint made from soft fabric and semi-rigid parts used for patients that do not exhibit spasticity or where it is only mild. It is designed for every day use as well as exercise.
The SaeboGlove parts do not have the material strength needed to re-extend the digits following grasping of a client that has increased spasticity. These clients would need the SaeboFlex.
There are 3 groups of clients that typically qualify for the SaeboGlove:
Mildly Affected Neurological Clients: These clients exhibit some finger extension, but not full. They may have used the SaeboFlex, but are no longer challenged by it. They may exhibit mild spasticity, but not enough to prevent them from extending their fingers to some degree. They still suffer from hand function impairment including fine motor control, weak finger flexors, and/or weak extensors. Numerous repetitions may be difficult due to weak finger extension strength and endurance. Thumb and index finger spasticity may be more prevalent.
Moderate/Severely Affected Neurological Clients: This group exhibits very minimal or no active wrist/finger extension and are very low tone or flaccid; they are not impeded by spasticity. Electrical stimulation combined with the SaeboGlove may be required with some users in this group to initiate grasp.
Orthopaedic Clients: This group typically has a diagnosis of radial nerve palsy/brachial plexus injury/fractures. They exhibit wrist drop and lack finger extension strength.
In order to qualify for the SaeboGlove, clients should exhibit some ability to squeeze. If the client cannot squeeze (curl fingers), then electrical stimulation to the finger flexors to facilitate squeezing can be provided. In addition to demonstrating active finger flexion, clients should not exhibit spasticity in the hand. If clients demonstrate more than mild hypertonicity in the wrist and fingers, then the SaeboFlex would be required.
As clients make progress with their upper limb recovery, it is common to see improvement with spasticity and better movement in the wrist and fingers. When this occurs, the SaeboGlove may be more appropriate for their next stage of treatment as it allows for use in every day tasks, not just exercise.
