GET A PIECE OF SAEBO
Stroke is the #1 cause of long-term disability with a market size that is projected to double between 2010 and 2050.
As healthcare costs skyrocket, Saebo’s affordable home-based rehabilitation products improve patient recoveries while lowering the short- and long-term costs of care.
A proven track record with 17 patents awarded, a network spanning six continents and over 40 countries, and $44 million in net revenue to date.
Saebo is dedicated to bringing accessible, affordable, mobility solutions to all. Committed to “leaving no patient behind” Saebo sets out to create products that could benefit every patient. Saebo’s revolutionary product offering is based on the latest advances in rehabilitation research. From the SaeboFlex to the SaeboMAS, Saebo provides innovative and affordable rehabilitation products.
Saebo has grown into a leading global provider of rehabilitative products created through unrelenting leadership and a strong network of clinicians around the world. As we help over 600,000 clients regain function, we aim to make our newest products more accessible than ever.
Every 2.1 seconds, someone in the world suffers a stroke. For those who are lucky enough to survive, overcoming paralysis can take months or even years of intense therapy.
Too often, patients are treated in facilities that do not offer the latest advances in stroke rehabilitation technology. Then, they are often sent home with no effective home program and without the tools and resources they need to recover. Most at home stroke rehabilitation technology is overpriced, ineffective, or too complicated for home use.
All along the way, doctors routinely misinform stroke patients about the potential for additional recovery. Many patients are told that they have reached a recovery “plateau” and additional progress is no longer possible.
Without help, patients experience worsening paralysis, decreased range-of-motion, increased pain and depression, and a deteriorating quality-of-life.
Making matters worse, even in developed countries like the U.S., insurance rarely covers the cost of long-term therapy or innovative rehabilitation products.
The latest research demonstrates that it doesn’t have to be this way. Today, we now know that recovery can continue for many years, even decades, but only if patients get the help they need.
Saebo creates effective, safe, and affordable products allowing every patient to maximize their neurological recovery, from the clinic to the home.
Each of our exclusive, easy-to-use products is designed and vetted by experienced, practicing clinicians.
Our products are backed by years of clinical research and designed for simple use at home.
Our FDA approved and non-invasive devices are affordable, even to those without insurance coverage.
Our portfolio of products help stroke patients overcome a variety of impairments and maximize their recovery.
We have a product or service for every patient looking to improve their recovery at home.
And, because our products are guaranteed to be effective, affordable, and easy-to-use, patients can order any product on our website and enjoy a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee. We also provide a free evaluation, expert advice, and follow-up clinical support with each order.
Our lifetime net revenue is at over $44 million and we’ve seen tremendous growth to-date across our B2B and B2C sectors:
A distributor network spanning 6 continents and over 40 countries
17 Patents: our innovative product designs have been awarded 17 different patents by the US Patent Office
FDA clearance: our products has already satisfied FDA pre-marketing requirements or are regulated as class I devices, which are exempt from premarket requirements
Global adoption: Our products have been used by an estimated 800,000 patients in more than 4,000 hospitals around the world.
Additionally, our products are recommended by the 10 top rehabilitation hospitals in the US (as ranked by US News and World Report). Our products and treatment approaches have now been featured in 20 different medical textbooks and publications, authored by the top neurologists and professors around the world. Saebo products and programs are featured in numerous university curriculums around the world.
Our very first product, the SaeboFlex, was recently put on permanent display at the London Science Museum alongside other breakthrough medical technologies such as penicillin and the first MRI.
The Business Model
With over $44 million in net revenue to date, Saebo has a well-established multi-channel business model.
We sell products directly to the end-user through our D2C e-commerce platform. This platform leverages clinical expertise, producing educational content that generates over 250,000 website visits per month. This has paved the way for our significant digital footprint.
Another primary revenue stream is our B2B channel. We sell products directly to hospitals and treatment centers for use in the care of their patients.
We also sell our products through various domestic and international healthcare providers and medical product distributors. This hybrid approach leverages a wide network of international distributors, who can then leverage their insurance networks and/or provider networks to navigate local compliance and logistics issues.
We have seen steady growth to-date across all of these channels:
90% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for products sold to US patients through our ecommerce platform since 2017.
27% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for direct-to-patient unit product sales between 2013 and 2018.
10% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for equipment sold to hospitals between 2013 and 2018.
And our multi-channel approach is now delivering scalable, capital-efficient growth opportunities based on falling customer acquisition costs and increasing customer lifetime values. Our current cost-per-acquisition is around $45 and our estimated lifetime value is about $300 per customer and rising.
Saebo is a well-established leader in the neurorehabilitation market for a significant population of stroke survivors:
Consistent, long-term growth in the worldwide market for stroke rehabilitation products will be driven by a number of factors including:
And finally, with COVID-19, we have seen an increased incidence of stroke. Particularly with pandemic restrictions, there is an increased urgency and demand for effective in-home therapy.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
