A new stimulation device called the SaeboStim Micro is now available for neurological patients limited with arm and hand function. The SaeboStim Micro provides low-level sensory electrical stimulation to the arm and hand using a specialized Electro-Mesh Garment. The unique Electro-Mesh material is not only soft and comfortable to wear at rest, but also during activities. Clients suffering from impaired function, weakness and spasticity can benefit from the much-needed stimulation.

The Electro-Mesh Garments consist of a glove (hand stimulation) and arm sleeve (arm stimulation). The conductive material is made of silver treated nylon fibers blended with Dacron®. The stimulation is delivered into the Garments by a uniquely designed stimulator widely used in scientific studies.

 

Why use Sensory Electrical Stimulation?

  • Impaired function from a neurological injury such as stroke typically result in both sensory and motor deficits.
  • Limited use of the upper limb can lead to impaired sensory communication to the brain (touch, feel, aware of joint movement).
  • Providing low-level sensory stimulation (i.e., without producing a muscle contraction) to the hand and arm, can increase signals delivered to the brain leading to increased corticomotor excitability.
  • This form of treatment primes the cortex which may lead to improved sensory/motor recovery, function and cortical reorganization.
