Reasons to Invest

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.

Leaving no patient behind

Saebo is dedicated to bringing accessible, affordable mobility solutions to all. The revolutionary product range is based on the latest advances in rehabilitation research. 



Through unrelenting commitment to creating innovative products and a strong network of clinicians around the world, Saebo has grown into a leading provider of rehabilitative products. Saebo has helped over 600,000 clients regain function and aims to make new products more accessible than ever.  


OUR LEADERSHIP


Decades of Diverse Expertise

The Saebo team is made up of exceptional leaders in both business and medicine, poised to change the lives of patients around the world. 




THE PROBLEM


Stroke rehabilitation equipment is overpriced, ineffective, or too complicated for home use

Every 2.1 seconds, someone suffers from a stroke.  For survivors, overcoming paralysis can take months, or even years, of intense therapy. Patients are often treated in facilities that do not offer the latest advances in therapy, then are sent home with no effective program, tools, or resources needed for recovery. Most at-home stroke rehabilitation technology is overpriced, ineffective, or too complicated and insurance rarely covers the cost of long-term therapy.



Many patients are told that they have reached a recovery plateau and that additional progress is no longer possible. Without a strong recovery plan and continued support, patients can experience worsening paralysis, decreased range-of-motion, increased pain, and depression.



The latest research proves 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. 

THE SOLUTION


Saebo is effective and affordable

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. 


WHAT WE DO


Reimagining recovery

From the hospital to the home, our products and services support patients each step of the way.  Our patient-targeted solutions are designed to meet three simple criteria: 

  1. Proven Efficacy: every product we sell is backed by science and years of clinical research
  2. Affordability: we focus on making every product as affordable as possible
  3. Ease-of-use: our products are vetted by clinicians with years of hands-on experience helping patients in real-world settings 



Saebo is also committed to educating patients and clinicians around the world about the latest advancements in treatment and how our products can help. The Saebo Academy is approved by the American Occupational Therapy Association to provide accredited continuing education courses to clinicians. To date, more than 20,000 therapists have participated in our educational programs worldwide.




BUSINESS MODEL


A multi-channel distribution system, secured with high lifetime value

With over $44 million in net revenue to date, Saebo has a well-established multi-channel business model. Saebo utilizes both B2B and D2C sales to ensure our products are widely available. In addition to selling to both patients and care facilities, we also sell our products through various domestic and international healthcare providers and medical product distributors. 


We have seen steady growth across all 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.



OUR TRACTION


A trusted brand with global reach

Saebo is synonymous with at-home recovery and our expansive network proves it. We have distributors spanning 6 continents, 17 U.S. recognized patents, FDA clearance, and an estimated 800,000 patients using our products across the world.


Our products are recommended by the 10 top rehabilitation hospitals in the US (as ranked by US News and World Report) and have been featured in 20 different medical textbooks and publications. Saebo products and programs are discussed in numerous university curriculums around the world. 



THE MARKET


Stroke is the #1 cause of long-term disability worldwide

Saebo is a leader in the neurorehabilitation market. Consistent, long-term growth in the worldwide market for stroke rehabilitation products will continue to be driven by a number of factors including:

  • Increasing stroke incidence levels due to changing demographics and lifestyles. As people live longer, they are more likely to have a stroke at some point in their lives.
  • Increasing stroke survival rates due to advances in acute medical care. A growing number of survivors means more require post-stroke rehabilitation.
  • Increasing demand for new technologies due to advances in neuroscience. 

Additionally, with COVID-19, we have seen increased urgency and demand for effective in-home therapy.



WHY INVEST


We’ve helped 1 million stroke patients. 79 million to go.

To continue to provide life-changing solutions for those suffering from impaired mobility and function, Saebo aims to expand global partnerships and provide accessible devices for every patient who needs them.



Our expansion focus is on new product development, lower-cost product sourcing, a sophisticated DTP digital marketing platform, and additional domestic and international distribution channels and partners. 

THE VISION


A Helping Hand For Every Patient

At Saebo, we believe every patient deserves the best help possible. That means empowering patients with the education, tools, and financial assistance they need to take control of their own recovery.



Saebo helps with more than stroke recovery. VA centers across the country utilise our products to help treat veterans with traumatic brain injuries. Our technology can improve the lives of those suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, neuropathy, and many other neurological disorders.

The SaeboGlove is Life-Changing for All Ages

29 days ago

“My son Tavion suffered a grade four brain bleed at birth. As a result, he has struggled with right-side hemiplegia his entire life. Over the course of his eleven years, he has become the king of doing things one-sided. It was nearly impossible to get him to use his right hand in play, at school, or in daily tasks. This started to change three months ago when Tavion received a SaeboGlove.

Since he began wearing the SaeboGlove I have seen marked improvements in Tavion’s ability to pick up small things, grasp objects, and in his range of movement. What is most remarkable is that these improvements are apparent whether he is wearing the SaeboGlove or not! Although Tavion wears the SaeboGlove for much of the day, he is starting to incorporate his right hand in activities even when the SaeboGlove is off. These changes in the strength and flexibility of Tavion’s hand are paving the way for new levels of independence for him. This is what every mother wants for her child.

The SaeboGlove has been life-changing for us. I just want to scream to the world that it is definitely the best product so that every parent of a child with hemiplegia will know about it.”

— Tavion’s Mom

Combining Saebo Solutions to Improve Hand Function. You Won't Believe the Results!

about 1 month ago

Research has shown that the SaeboGlove combined with electrical stimulation can improve upper extremity function in subacute stroke patients with little to no hand movement. Through the use of these technologies, clients that exhibit no hand function can immediately obtain functional use very early on. Many clients can go on to make meaningful hand recovery and may no longer require the assistance of these devices long-term.

Step 1: Apply electrical stimulation to the thenar/hypothenar and long finger flexors.

Step 2: Apply the SaeboGlove.

Step 3: Strengthen finger flexors by triggering stimulation while using the SaeboGlove.

Step 4: For continued improvement, use the SaeboGlove (or SaeboFlex) to perform grasp and release tasks with and without electrical stimulation.

Step 5: Strengthen finger extensors while on stretch (initially) to maximize firing.

Watch the video below to see how you can improve function in a flaccid hand in just 5 easy steps, using Saebo’s innovative rehabilitation technology. The video features a patient with NO finger flexion and NO finger extension prior to applying the Saebo devices. You won’t believe the results!

Electrical Stimulation Can Help Survivors

about 1 month ago

Electrical stimulation therapy is a treatment with a multitude of uses. It can help prevent atrophy and build strength in patients with injuries. It can help restore function and reduce edema, especially after a stroke. With electrical stimulation, the patient can maintain muscle tone and strength that would otherwise waste away from lack of usage and has given patients with neurological damage a better quality of life. 

In electrical stimulation, non-invasive electrodes are placed on the patient’s skin, causing the targeted muscles to contract. A mild electrical current is sent to an area of the body that is receiving unclear, few, or no signals from the brain after a stroke. This stimulates the body’s inner electrical system, inducing new connections to be formed in the brain and, in turn, allowing for greater control of the particular area of the body. Electrical stimulation works by mimicking the natural way the body exercises its muscles. 

In some cases, spinal cord injury or stroke, patients are often left with pain and the inability to use parts of their bodies. Electrical stimulation can revive connections in the nervous system over time so that controlled mobility is regained and chronic pain is relieved. Repetitive treatments can potentially nudge these areas back to life, giving patients renewed the ability to use limbs or suffer less pain. 

Electrical stimulation works for many patients with neurological damage, but it is important to be aware of the cases in which this type of treatment should not be used. Electrical stimulation therapy is unsafe for people using a cardiac pacemaker or defibrillator.

Knowledge is Power

about 2 months ago

Saebo is committed to advancing the clinical profession through high-quality, evidence-based education. Here at Saebo, we believe knowledge is power. In August of 2020, we launched our online education site, Saebo Academy. Saebo Academy offers therapists and clinicians FREE self-study continuing education units (CEUs). These courses are nationally approved by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), a gold standard for educating and supporting rehabilitation professionals.

Saebo believes it is important to have the most effective and proven tools at a therapist’s disposal, and the CEUs help our users build a comprehensive treatment program for their clients.  Along with the Saebo Academy, therapists and clinicians can find clinical presentations, webinars, Saebo research, product information, training portals and videos, and clinical support, all within our website. We know that therapists and clinicians play a vital role in helping clients regain their ability to live independently and confidently. That is why we provide our clinicians easy, accessible resources and provide our therapists and clients with evidence-based products. There truly should be No Plateau In Sight.  

Saebo Product Gives Hope

about 2 months ago

At 31 years old, Mimi Duffy quickly found herself in a fight for her life.

One morning, she awoke to what she believed was a common migraine headache. However, the ordinary soon turned into the extraordinary after her husband found her unresponsive on their bed.

A CT scan at the hospital showed substantial bleeding in the area between her brain and the thin tissue that covers it, otherwise known as the subarachnoid space. Unbeknownst to her loved ones, Mimi had suffered a major hemorrhagic stroke in her brain stem, paralyzing her entire right side.

She was immediately admitted to the ICU; she was in a coma and on a ventilator. Her prognosis was not good – doctors predicted to her husband, Chris, and her immediate family members that she would spend the rest of her life “locked-in,” a condition where the person is aware and awake but unable to move or verbally communicate.

That was more than two years ago. Today, Mimi finds herself immersed in therapy sessions and making strides toward becoming the independent woman she once was with the help of her SaeboFlex.

“The device not only gives me hope, but it also gives my once useless hand, purpose,” explains Mimi. “Thanks to the SaeboFlex, the range of motion in my right arm and shoulder are significantly improved. I can now do things I never thought I would be able to do again, such as move my right hand across my body to the left, turn my wrist over, and grasp and release objects with my hand.”

With the assistance of the SaeboFlex, Mimi is moving closer toward accomplishing her goal of returning to 100% mobility. Tasks she once found unattainable, now seem possible with a lot of practice, a concept that can be a challenge for a past salesperson who was constantly on the go and in a hurry.

“My ‘new’ body slows me down in life, but the SaeboFlex is helping me speed up my recovery,” said Mimi. “I would whole-heartedly recommend it to people like me. It’s helped my mind remember how it feels to use my hand and given me important options, such as working my fingers and providing me with the tools needed to perfect every movement I used to do on a daily basis.”

— Mimi Duffy, Stroke Survivor

TALENT + CAPITAL = GROWTH

4 months ago

When we began our Start Engine Campaign, we felt like we had a really solid Sales and Marketing team in place, but knew we needed to add in a few areas. If you’ve read through our Campaign page, been following our “Updates” and looked over the Q&A in our “Comments” section, you’ll know that we are cash flow “break-even” from operations and that we are using the funds we are raising primarily to grow.

So, we wanted to give you a quick snapshot of how we are investing the money we’ve raised so far:

Talent

Any company is only as good as its staff, and we’ve added some good ones recently to continue our growth.

New Director of Digital Marketing and Ecommerce – After an exhaustive search reviewing over 400 candidates, we hired Mitch, who most recently helped grow a Consumer goods company from $5MM to 40MM in sales in 18 months and built a marketing department from 1 person to 11. Sounds like good preparation for what we need at Saebo!

New Regional Account Manager (RAM) – We promoted from within to this senior sales position responsible for selling Capital Equipment and Patient Products primarily to Hospitals.

New Territory Account Manager (TAR) – We were able to bring back a former employee into this important role facilitating Patient Product sales to consumers and therapists.

Two new Sales Admin Support staff – As our sales teams have gotten busier, they need more support to free them up to spend more time SELLING and less time moving paper and data. These are also great “feeder” positions to the TAR role as we continue to grow.

Marketing

Based on the ongoing success of our Digital Advertising and Marketing campaigns ( consistent ~5x ROAS) we have:

  • Increased our US ad spend by 50%, with no apparent decline in ROAS. If this continues, we’ll ratchet it up another 50% in another month or so.
  • Same in the UK, which continues to significantly outperform the prior year and this year’s budget.

Product

We’re also making significant investments in the Product Development and Sourcing areas:

  • We are in beta test for a “new and improved” version of one of our most popular products. Feedback from customers so far has been “amazing.” . . . and the new version will ultimately cut our COGS in half, adding well over $100K to the bottom line in 2022 and opening up new distribution opportunities.
  • We are still planning a summer/fall launch of our SaeboStim Spa (see Update #11 below) to treat neuropathy (nerve pain) common in stroke survivors, and also our first foray into the much larger diabetic neuropathy space. 
  • We have increased our inventory of some of our harder-to-source products to minimize backorders (lost sales).

While all of this is a lot of investment, Don’t Worry that we’re trying to go too fast. Our Leadership team is very experienced in managing rapid growth with a focus on incremental profit from investments (ROI) and careful cash-flow management. We have more cash on hand and available to us now than at any time in the past few years – so plenty of “cushion” and fuel for continued growth!!!

Saebo Second Quarter Sales Challenge Update!

4 months ago

Well, now we know why Saebo’s Director of International Sales wanted in on the sales challenge! 

International Sales in April were up a whopping 59.7% vs. April 2020, helped by a $21K order from Qatar(!) and nice orders from Hong Kong and Australia.  However, David is telling us that international sales in May are going to be even better!!

The US also had great sales growth, up 52.8% vs. April 2020, on the strength of record US Direct-to-Patient sales (our fastest growing and most profitable category). 

The first couple weeks of May were also strong, so the US is going to give David a run for his money!

The UK is having a great year so far, beating the budget by 133%.  Unfortunately, while their April sales beat the budget, they were only about 1% ahead of April 2020.

Just a reminder, first prize is a Curry dinner at David’s favorite Indian restaurant in London (so everyone wins!!)  

Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to accelerate our business!!


May is Stroke Awareness Month!

4 months ago


The idea of a stroke can be frightening because it comes without warning and can cause a number of life-altering disabilities. Unfortunately, nearly 800,000 people will experience a new or recurrent stroke every year, and stroke is a leading cause of disability in the United States.

Here at Saebo, for the month of May, we will be sharing stroke warning signs, tips to prevent a stroke or second stroke, helpful recovery information, stroke rehabilitation products, and so much more with our audience on all our social media platforms.

With a support team, the right rehabilitation plan and products, and a positive attitude, strokes can be beatable. Rehabilitation is key to achieving and praising all the small victories during recovery.

Saebo Announces Continued Growth Despite Global Pandemic

6 months ago

Well, it’s been a year since the COVID pandemic began.  It’s a cliché’ to say everything changed . . . . but some things didn’t, like the growth in Saebo’s e-commerce sales.  Our e-commerce channel was already growing at high double-digit percentage rates pre-pandemic, and after a brief decline when lockdowns were first implemented last March, our e-commerce sales came back stronger than ever!

- Despite rehab facilities being closed

- Stroke survivors still wanted to regain function

- So they increasingly turned to Saebo’s affordable, effective products for home rehab.

- . . . and always with a 30-day Money Back Guarantee!

That’s a 600% increase in e-commerce sales in just the last three years! Our e-commerce growth strategy is clearly working, and a significant portion of the money we raise will go to new product launches and additional marketing to increase these sales even faster!

Saebo Q4 Update

8 months ago

Saebo’s preliminary 4th quarter sales results are in, and despite the COVID-19 pandemic, our North American Patient orders are up a remarkable 13% versus Q4 prior year. This despite the fact that many of the rehabilitation facilities that refer Patient Products to us were closed, or on a very limited schedule for much of the year.  Further, online orders of Patient Products through our shopping cart were up a whopping 53% for Q4 compared to Q4 2019, and up more than 50% for the full year, demonstrating the scalable nature of Saebo’s business model, and the continued strong demand for our Patient Products. 

 

Saebo further reports that International orders, including Saebo’s wholly-owned UK subsidiary, were up 8% in Q4 2020 vs. Q4 2019. This is significant because many of Saebo’s large international markets (e.g., Germany, Italy, Benelux, UK, etc.) were also seriously impacted by COVID-19 shutdowns and restrictions in 2020.

 

“These significant increases, especially under the circumstances, highlight the company’s successful pivot in the face of COVID-19 related challenges to the US healthcare systems,” said Saebo’s President, Henry Hoffman. “By promoting and delivering our products directly to patients for in-home use, we’ve been able to help our customers around the world continue their recoveries at home while increasing the most important and fastest-growing segments of our business."

Saebo makes the impossible possible!

8 months ago

Check out this 30-second video of a UK client making remarkable gains over the holiday break with the SaeboGlove and SaeboMAS. The patient started with little hand movement. Watch how these products transformed his recovery.

The cutting-edge SaeboGlove supports a survivor’s affected hand while they move throughout their day. The SaeboGlove assists the patient with normal hand activities like grasping household items and rebuilds muscular strength in the process. The proprietary tension system extends the fingers and thumb after grasping. The SaeboGlove is based on the latest advances in neurorehabilitation research about the brain’s ability to “reprogram” itself through mass practice, task-oriented arm training. 

The SaeboMAS, a zero-gravity arm support system, takes the weight off the shoulder and allows the arm to achieve the range of motion necessary for standard tasks and exercises. This, in turn, strengthens the muscles around the arm that would have otherwise gone unused. The SaeboMAS can assist with performing the prescribed repetitive motions that fight against joint pain, muscle spasticity, and weakness.

Thank you for a fantastic first week!
