Features:

Evidence-based SaeboMind treatment for rehabilitation of movement after a neurological injury such as a stroke or brain injury involves actively listening to audio recordings and imagining what it would be like to perform the activity using the affected side.

  • Choose from a variety of upper limb and lower limb every day activities in the SaeboMind Exercise Portal.
  • Total practice time ranges from 20-30 minutes for one audio file.
  • All audio files start with Introduction Meditation and end with a Closing Meditation that includes:
    • Progressive Muscle Relaxation – a mindful sequence of contraction and relaxation of muscle groups to increase awareness and develop control of muscles;
    • Deep Breathing – promotes a relaxation response to lower stress and increase focus, increasing oxygen and blood flow to brain and body;

Note: Intervention must include the introductory and closing meditation sequences for effectiveness.

Tip: For best results, each sequence can easily be performed following an initial direction by a therapist, non therapist (e.g. relative, friend, support worker) or by closely following the instructions in this manual.

Indications for Use:

  • Following a stroke or brain injury that has resulted in difficulty moving one or both sides of the bodies due to weakness or motor control impairments.
  • Must be able to concentrate for the duration of a session (20-30 minutes)
  • Listening to mental practice tends to work best on those that can:
    • understand concepts regarding mental rehearsal
    • actively listen and imagine a visual picture in the mind
    • understand (most) spoken directions.
  • You can still qualify for mental practice even if you can’t move/feel your affected limb(s).

Precautions:

There are no known adverse effects for participating in mental practice. However, it is highly important to follow the below guidelines:

  • Always perform mental practice in a chair or bed that is considered supportive, safe, and secure to avoid falls.
  • Ensure all of your assistive equipment is within reach to avoid falls.
  • NEVER STAND UP or physically perform any of the actions described during mental practice.
  • Supervision is recommended for clients with disorientation or confusion that could place themselves at risk for injury.
  • SAEBOMIND EXERCISE AUDIO FILES ARE INTENDED FOR LISTENING AND MENTAL PRACTICE OF A TASK ONLY.
  • NEVER drive or operate a vehicle unless cleared by a physician.
  • Always work directly with a skilled rehabilitation professional when physically practicing tasks that could place you at risk for fall or injury.
  • After finishing your mental practice session, it is common to be very relaxed as you come back to awareness in your room. As a general precaution, be sure to give yourself time to sit up and stretch, move your muscles, and become alert before getting out of your chair/bed. This will help to reduce the risk of losing balance or becoming light headed from getting up too quickly.

SaeboGlove FAQs

What is SaeboMind?

SaeboMind is a collection of mental imagery practice exercises for improved motor recovery. According to research, mentally rehearsing specific tasks in combination with other treatment can improve upper limb function after a neurological injury such as a stroke. Listen, visualise, and retrain your brain to perform every day tasks.

I had my stroke 10 years ago. Is it too late for me to start using SaeboMind?

Absolutely not! When it comes to your health, recovery, and physical abilities, it is never too late to try. People up to 20 years post neurological injury can benefit from mental practice exercises.

What can I (or my patient) expect?

In each mental practice session, you will be imagining yourself performing daily tasks with your affected arm, wrist, and fingers. When your mental practice sequence is complete you will go through a brief period of progressive muscle relaxation and deep breathing until you have returned to your present environment and opened your eyes.
