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.

Our Founder and CTO, Henry Hoffman continues to innovate, challenge and lead the neurotherapist community through research, methods, products and protocols to make sure no patient is left behind a false plateau.  We've helped patients get back to active daily living YEARS after they stopped traditional post-stroke treatment because they were told they could no longer improve and their insurance suddenly stops.

The Saebo team is incredibly dedicated and committed to our mission.  They are passionate about our patients and making sure they have the right products and services to meet their needs.

Finally, our customers reach out to us every day - telling us how much they love our products and are elated at how they've impacted their lives.  This, THIS is why we do what we do - and it's why I joined Saebo to accelerate growth and help more patients!

It's Spa Day! And a reminder, our campaign closes on May 31st!

5 months ago

Greetings Saebo Fans!

We've mentioned several new product launches and expansion into new markets.  Our SaeboSpa™ or as we call it, the Spa, provides extremely safe, low-level electrical stimulation designed to improve sensation, reduce spasticity, improve function, and decrease pain in the foot.

The Spa provides circumferential “under water” nerve stimulation that is consistent, comfortable and evenly distributed throughout the affected area using specialized waveforms can also treat additional conditions including peripheral neuropathy and nerve pain disorders.

This, from one of our happy stroke survivors:  

I just wanted to let you all know that I normally use the SaeboStim Spa after dinner / supper, and before bed, however yesterday, my schedule got a little messed up, so I did the Spa...just before dinner.  It was such a nice day that I did several laps around our neighborhood, almost 2 kilometers each lap...I decided to go on one last lap, once I finished the Spa treatments.  Well, you would think that after all day, and already over 4 kilometers of walking, that it would be more difficult, and tiring, but it was quite the opposite.  There was absolutely no effort to walk.  

Now's the time to consider investing in our mission to leave No Patient Behind!  We are excited about this movement into the pain market and look forward to more exciting testimonials.

No MAS!!!

5 months ago

Hello Saebo fans!

Last week, we talked about the SaeboStretch™, one of our four marketing leading products:

  1. SaeboStep™

  2. SaeboGlove™

  3. SaeboStretch™

  4. SaeboMAS™

Today I’ll be talking about the SaeboMAS™ (or as we call it, the MAS). 

The MAS is a dynamic mobile arm support system is a zero gravity upper extremity device specifically designed to facilitate and challenge the weakened shoulder and elbow during functional tasks and exercise drills. 

The MAS is for patients suffering from neurological and orthopedic conditions and who exhibit arm weakness by offering much needed support and facilitation to assist, as well as challenge, the involved shoulder and elbow during functional tasks.

What can patients expect when using the MAS?

  1. Because of the zero-gravity technology, once the client is positioned in the MAS, immediately he or she will notice the arm feels less heavy and the movement is more controlled.

  2. With a weightless arm, the client will experience less fatigue and compensation and require fewer rest breaks during exercises.

  3. Oftentimes, spasticity in the hand will be reduced while unweighting the arm due to less effort and exertion. This may be important when attempting to perform self-care tasks involving the affected hand.

Why is the MAS such an important part of post-stroke therapy?

  • Following a neurological or orthopedic injury, it is common for clients to experience impaired arm and hand function resulting in decreased strength, coordination and range of motion. Oftentimes, clients are unable to support or move their arm in order to perform exercises necessary for proper recovery.

  • If the arm has limited use, this may lead to impaired communication to the brain, further limiting function and movement following a neurological injury, such as a stroke.

  • Unfortunately, most clients do not receive enough range of motion exercises – either during therapy or at home – necessary to retrain the brain and gain functional range of motion. The lack of movement may also lead to increased pain and joint problems which further decreases the potential for proper arm recovery. For this reason, the MAS is the perfect solution to add to the recovery tool box.

  • The MAS removes gravity so the client’s arm is unweighted allowing for improved movement and function. By allowing the MAS to support the arm, clients can perform exercises to strengthen the weakened shoulder and elbow. This allows the patient the opportunity to perform highly repetitive exercises and functional tasks that would otherwise be impossible.

  • Since the MAS supports the arm during functional tasks and exercises, it reduces the amount of hand-over-hand assistance the therapist or caregiver must provide.

  • The MAS is fully adjustable offering different levels of assistance, depending on how much support the patient may need. By simply turning a knob, the tension can be adjusted to offer more or less support. This feature is very helpful as the patient’s recovery may vary at times.

  • The MAS has a graded tension scale that is easily visible. This allows the therapist and/or patient to track and measure progress.

  • Because the system is height adjustable, it offers the ability to perform exercises and tasks in many directions and planes.

  • It comes with a comfortable and bendable forearm support to custom fit various-sized clients and a removable liner for proper infection control..

Why are we excited about the future of the MAS?

  1. The MAS serves the global rehab “robotics” market - projected to grow at a 19.4% CAGR to reach US$754.2 Million by the end of the analysis period, the U.S. portion of this market is estimated to be US$253.1 Million, or 38.78% of the global market as of 2021. (https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/global-rehabilitation-robots-market-report-2022-market-to-reach-1-8-billion-by-2026-from-566-5-million-in-2020--301519012.html) 

  2. Our gross margins are exceptionally high for the MAS.

  3. The MAS is a category leading product with a defined market.

It’s an amazing product.  Don’t take our word for it, here’s a sample of what our patients have to say:

“Absolutely adore using the SaeboMAS! It has made treatments so much more effective with my adult neuro patients!”

“I am an occupational therapist who works with patients recovering from stroke and traumatic brain injury, and the SaeboMAS is a very important asset to me. Once patients begin working with the SaeboMAS, their functioning improves even when they are not using it. It allows patients to really get those repetitions done, so that they can build back strength and the brain can begin to retrain itself. With the SaeboMAS, I show my patients that they can do the work, and then just watch them progress.”

Disclaimer: These testimonials may not be representative of the experience of other customers and are no guarantee of future performance or success.

If you have any questions about the MAS or other products, clients and markets, please let us know.

No Plateau!

It's not a Stretch to say....

6 months ago

Hello Saebo fans!

Last week, we talked about the SaeboGlove™, one of our four marketing leading products:

  1. SaeboStep™

  2. SaeboGlove™

  3. SaeboStretch™

  4. SaeboMAS™

Today I’ll be talking about the SaeboStretch™ (or as we call it, the Stretch). 

The Stretch is designed to help:

  • Neurologically-impaired clients maintain or improve motion while minimizing joint damage and pain.

  • Individuals suffering from spasticity to stretch comfortably and safely resulting in increased motivation and compliance.

Why is the Stretch different from current traditional splints?

  1. Protects your Joints:

    1. Traditional splints are made from hard/rigid material that do not allow for any movement of the fingers. The Stretch has a unique dynamic hand piece that allows the fingers to move through flexion due to increased tone. The same technology safely repositions the fingers into extension. The Stretch includes three different hand pieces that offer various grades of resistance so you can further match your patient’s specific needs.

  2. Positions the Hand.  The Stretch provides maximum positioning utilizing the following:

    1. Proprietary new strapping system that utilizes key anatomical points of control to maximize control and insure an intimate fit.

    2. Malleable wrist and thumb mount allows the therapist to further customize the fit.

    3. New non-slip strap material and design helps facilitate keeping the fingers in the desired position.

    4. Breeth-O-Preen covering allows moisture to wick away, enhancing skin integrity and hygiene.

    5. Palmer padding to help maintain the integrity of the arch.

Key attributes of the Stretch:

  • Patented stretch technology with three interchangeable energy-storing hand plates.

  • Proprietary strapping system that utilizes key anatomical points of control to maximize control and insure an intimate fit.

  • Malleable wrist and thumb mount allows Therapists to further customize the fit.

  • Comfortable non-slip cover and straps to keep fingers in the desired position.

  • Straps sewn to cover to maximize proper positioning and ease of donning.

  • Adjustable thumb system to allow for radial and palmar adduction/abduction.

  • Special padding to help maintain the integrity of the Palmer arch.

  • Cover features a zipper closure which can easily be removed for cleaning.

Why are we excited about the future of the Stretch?

  1. The Stretch serves the global upper limb prosthetic market - estimated to be $687.73 million in 2020.  This market is forecasted to grow at 4.24% CAGR to $1 billion by 2030. (https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/upper-limb-prosthetics-market-A12065) 

  2. Our gross margins are exceptionally high for the Stretch, allowing us to explore international markets and channel partners with enough incentive to support a tiered model.

  3. The Stretch provides almost instant relief and improved function for our clients, creating raving fans and testimonials beyond just stroke rehabilitation.

It’s an amazing product.  Don’t take our word for it, here’s a sample of what our patients have to say:

“I had hand surgery and was told to purchase something that would hold my hand flat. I ordered a SaeboStretch and another brand that was just a piece of plastic with Velcro (it was much cheaper) but once the SaeboStretch came in I knew I had the best. If I ever have to go through this again this would be the only brand I would purchase. It is excellent! The splint lets your hand flex a little and it is soft.”

“Thank goodness, I ran into your site. I have tried different braces and the Saebo does what I wanted from a brace. I have MS and needed something to help me straighten my finger; from turning inward to a fist. This is helping in keeping my fingers straight. Thanks!”

“This brace is great. I was in a wreck about 8 months ago that left my right arm paralyzed. My hand is already trying to contract. I ordered this brace about 2 months ago to see if it would help prevent my hand from contracting. My husband had to help me initially to get the brace formed to the correct position but now I am able to put it on by myself with my left hand. It is very comfortable and keeps my hand in a natural position with my fingers straight. I am also very pleased because I feel like I have more control of my arm when I’m wearing it….. normally my hand and arm is just flacid but when I have it on it holds my arm straight like it should be instead of just flopping around. I can already tell that my fingers are a little straighter and I don’t even wear it as much as I should. It really is helping prevent “wrist drop” and contractures from developing in my fingers, thumb and wrist. Also it’s not big and bulky looking and all the straps keep it in place like it is supposed to be. Sometimes I even sleep in it. I am very happy with this purchase. It was definitely worth the money and I would recommend it to others who are having similar issues.”

Fits like a Glove!

6 months ago

Hello Saebo fans!

Last week, we talked about the SaeboStep™, one of our four marketing leading products:

  1. SaeboStep™

  2. SaeboGlove™

  3. SaeboStretch™

  4. SaeboMAS™

Today I’ll be talking about the SaeboGlove™ (or as we call it, the Glove). 

The Glove is designed to help those recovering from:

  • Mildly Affected Neurological Clients: These clients exhibit some finger extension, but not full. They may exhibit mild hypertonicity, 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 tone may be more prevalent. They are typically in the outpatient setting.

  • 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 hypertonicity. They are typically in the inpatient setting. A majority will require electrical stimulation with the Glove.

  • Orthopedic Clients: This group typically has a diagnosis of radial nerve palsy/brachial plexus injury/fractures. They exhibit wrist drop and lack finger extension strength.

Issues the Glove will address:

  1. Helps clients suffering from neurological and orthopedic injuries incorporate their hand functionally in therapy and at home.

  2. The proprietary tension system extends the client’s fingers and thumb following grasping.

Key attributes of the Glove:

  • The Glove is a light and comfortable splint that allows an impaired arm and hand to regain function.

  • Normally, clients that have suffered a neurological injury such as stroke are unable to open or extend their fingers and their hand often is in a clenched or closed position.

  • The Glove assists with hand opening and closing (grasping and releasing).

  • The fingers and thumb are opened by a tensioner mechanism that looks like soft elastic bands. The tensioners are easy to put on and take off and offer multiple attachment sites for each finger, to customize the amount of help the client may need to open and close their hand. Individual tensioners may also be removed as the client makes progress.

  • By opening and closing the hand with the Glove, clients can retrain the brain and strengthen the muscles needed to perform daily tasks. It can also prevent tightening of the hand and shortening of the muscles, which can limit hand function even further.

  • “If you don’t use it you will lose it.”  With the client using his or her hand early and often following the injury, further loss of movement can be prevented and a faster recovery may occur.

Why are we excited about the future of the Step?

  1. The Glove serves the global upper limb prosthetic market - estimated to be $687.73 million in 2020.  This market is forecasted to grow at 4.24% CAGR to $1 billion by 2030. (https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/upper-limb-prosthetics-market-A12065) 

  2. Our gross margins are exceptionally high for the Glove, allowing us to explore international markets and channel partners with enough incentive to support a tiered model.

  3. The Glove provides almost instant relief and improved function for our clients, creating raving fans and testimonials.

It’s an amazing product.  Don’t take our word for it, here’s a sample of what our patients have to say:

Saebo has helped me regain movement in my left hand after thinking I wasn’t going to regain any movement. I have used the SaeboMAS mini and the SaeboGlove together and it really helped. I am now able to open and close my hand and now relearning to use my hand in everyday tasks. I can not thank Saebo enough for the products they do and I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs that little extra help. With a lot of repetitions, hard work, and determination you will definitely see results.

I have used the SaeboGlove with several patients with stroke and TBI and am impressed by its usefulness in regaining function and motor control. As an occupational therapist, I am always looking for methods for patients to carry over their efforts in a home program and this has been the perfect device for that.”

I love this glove! I’m able to grasp things now with the glove on! It makes my life so much easier. I definitely recommend it to people who have a hard time extending their fingers.”

It felt so awesome to actually be able to use my left arm and hand for something again. I am seeing continued improvement and I am not going backward. I wish all stroke patients were introduced to these devices immediately after the stroke. I was seven months out before I began this therapy

From the moment I put on the SaeboGlove, I could feel muscle sensations in my left arm and hand that I hadn’t felt in almost 50 years!!

Great news!

Hello Saebo fans!

We just received our fully consolidated and reviewed financial statements from our accounting firm.  As we had reported in our last Start Engine update, and now confirmed by our accounting firm, I'd like to highlight a couple key results!

  1. Consolidated Net Revenue for 2021 was up 13.3% over 2020, to $4.6 million!
  2. Consolidated Gross Profit for 2021 was up 18% over 2020, to $2.9 million!
  3. Consolidated Gross Profit Margin for 2021 grew to 63.2%!

These results are incredibly encouraging considering the world was still in a COVID fog during 2021, yet we grew revenue and margin.

Our outlook for 2022 continues to be extremely positive and we are excited about new products, markets and continued growth in our best selling products!

Thanks for all your support.

Hello Saebo fans!

I had the pleasure of interviewing Guy and Jane Harvey, Saebo clients and two of the most inspiring people you'll ever meet.

Guy suffered two life-threatening strokes in 30 days back in 2016.  His journey back, Jane's inspiring love and support are the stuff of legend.

Guy continues his journey.  He's found Saebo products to be a big part of his recovery.  So much so, he started a company to inspire and educate others about how the right tools, perseverance and loving support can impact recovery for stroke survivors.

Guy and Jane's story should be a movie.  Consider their episode of the No Plateau Podcast (to be released in May) the trailer :-).

Enjoy.

A Step in the right direction...

6 months ago

Hello fans of Saebo!

This is my first post as CEO of Saebo.  I’ll be sharing thoughts on products, the market, and our key milestones over the coming weeks. It’s an exciting time to be joining the company.

Saebo offers a wide variety of products and services for stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI) or other neuro-related conditions.  

Over the coming weeks I will highlight four of our best-selling products, all considered to be the most advanced and capable in the world, for their designated applications.

  1. SaeboStep™
  2. SaeboGlove™
  3. SaeboStretch™
  4. SaeboMAS™

Today I’ll be talking about the SaeboStep™ (or as we call it, the Step). 

The Step is designed to help those recovering from:

  • Stroke
  • TBI
  • Spinal-cord injury
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Orthopedic injuries

Issues the Step will address:

  1. Ankle/foot weakness
  2. Gait abnormalities
  3. Difficulty raising the foot due to reduced function or “foot drop, drop foot”

Key attributes of the Step:

  • The Step consists of a lightweight, uniquely designed foot drop brace that provides convenience and comfort while offering optimum foot clearance and support during walking.
  • The Step was designed to replace uncomfortable, stiff, or bulky splints that go inside the shoe as well as poorly manufactured braces designed for outside of the shoe that lack support and durability.
  • The Step can even be worn comfortably with the majority of male or female shoe styles. Individuals can use their favorite shoes by ordering the accessory kit to enable footwear without eyelets to be modified.
  • The Step is fully adjustable and designed to provide a comfortable yet secure fit for most patients. Our unique design requires no cutting or trimming and can comfortably fit all patients with an ankle circumference between 6.5 inches and 11 inches.

Why are we excited about the future of the Step?

  1. The Step serves the largest population of an enormous and growing market.  The global orthopedic braces market is forecasted to grow at 5.8% CAGR to $4.6 billion by 2027. More patients are ordering these products online and soft & elastic braces, where the Step would reside, is expected to grow at the highest rate during this period. (https://www.marketsandmarkets.com/Market-Reports/orthopedic-braces-support-market-24806829.html) 
  2. The Step is priced below expensive custom orthotics, so affordable.  It’s also value-priced above cheap elastic braces, conveying superior function and durability.
  3. Our gross margins are exceptionally high for the Step, allowing us to explore international markets and channel partners with enough incentive to support a tiered model.
  4. The Step provides almost instant relief and improved function for our clients, creating raving fans and testimonials.

It’s an amazing product.  Don’t take our word for it, here’s a sample of what our patients have to say:

Our Saebo experience was a wonderful one…I had tried an AFO and found it unmanageable. It was so unforgiving and uncomfortable that I did not use it. After my hip replacement surgery, I was having a difficult time walking. We found the Saebo website and checked it out immediately. …I wore the brace to physical therapy and my therapist was really excited about it and her clients that it will help. Several qualities are exceptional. One is that you can put it on without help and adjust it for maximum support. Another is that it is comfortable all day. The eyelets are ingenious. All in all my wife and I are thrilled.”

I love your brace. I had a full orthotic for 13 years and have been using this for almost 2 years. Someone stopped me in a store and told me about this great product and it has truly changed my life. It changed my walking pattern and I can walk sometimes without my cane. People and doctors are amazed and I recommend your product to everyone.”

In the past I have used a carbon steel AFO brace that slides into my shoe. I used it sometimes, but not all the time because of discomfort. It was also hard to find a shoe to slide it into. I also bought a Bioness electronic brace for over $600. This was okay but after a while I got a lot of skin irritation under the electrodes. I could really only wear it a few hours a day, but I needed to wear it all day. Plus, I had to find wider pants to fit over the brace. The SaeboStep is reasonably priced and I am very pleased with it. Actually it’s the best brace that I have used so far. I am actually using it everyday! I actually WANT to put it on.”

I am a physical therapist specializing in spine rehabilitation. I have a patient that has drop foot and today she came in using this drop foot brace and I was impressed by how good she looked and ambulated. Her balance and quality of gait improved significantly. very simple to adjust and to install in all kinds of shoes. Great product I recommend it!!”

I had a custom, ceramic, ankle-foot orthosis made for $2500. This turned out to be like a medieval torture device – an expensive one too! It was so uncomfortable. Then I saw the SaeboStep on the Saebo website and it looked much more comfortable so I decided to try it. The SaeboStep is far superior to the other device I was using which caused my heel to come crashing down when I would go up and down steps. What a difference this makes. I am so grateful to the engineers at Saebo for their innovations. Keep up the good work!

Welcoming another new member to the Saebo team!

Saebo has a big focus this year on branding and education. We want to become the leaders when our customers think of stroke rehabilitation products AND help through their journey. We know that it is important to offer resources and education for our Survivors to continue on their journey OR start back on their journey. Therefore to continue our focus on content creation we have hired a Content Manager to join our team. Meet Carly Russo. Carly's first official day with Saebo is March 7th and we couldn't be more excited to welcome her.



Carly studied Multimedia Journalism at Florida Atlantic University and recently received her digital marketing certificate from the University of Vermont. Carly has written for a plethora of topics from music, medical recruiting to sporting-related topics. She will be tasked with helping us grow our community through content, interacting on our social channels and who knows... maybe launching a podcast!



Please join us in welcoming, Carly! 


Stroke survivors use Saebo products in innovative ways to enhance their recovery!

7 months ago

We launched the SaeboStim Spa a month ago and the early signals from our survivors are indicating this product is helping them! Watching the clever ways survivors adapt through their recovery journey is what gives us at Saebo the energy to invent new ways to help.


Alfonso and his wife, Bertha cleverly utilized two buckets to achieve a more comfortable spa-like experience for his hand treatments (OK.. added that for effect but has recovery ever also provided you an opportunity to enjoy the moment and moisturize your skin?). Their setup has allowed Alfonso the ability to use this tool in his recovery kit for both his hands and feet.



Every day survivors are pushing the boundaries of what is possible in their recovery and it is the continued drive that our Survivors have that encourages us to keep developing new ways to serve them.

For today’s update, we are honored to feature Bianca Sun. Bianca has been with Saebo for eight years and has recently been promoted to National Director of Hospital Sales. Bianca started her career helping organic chemists make synthetic compounds such as pharmaceuticals (sounds complicated 😊 ), but we are so glad she fell into a 15-year technical sales career instead. Bianca will use her experience and extensive knowledge of Saebo’s products and customers to engage our customers in the hospital & clinical setting.

Bianca has a passion for helping people who have pain or other disabilities get better without the help of pharmaceuticals. She never stops thinking about the uses for our products and even helped her father in law who suffered from a frozen shoulder. Her father-in-law suffered from a frozen shoulder as a result of a heart attack. He was in debilitating pain and felt he had no other choice but to use pain medication. She suggested he use the SaeboStim One instead. After three months, he regained 90% function and never had to use the pain medication!

Sky’s the limit with the ideas Bianca brings to the table, and we can’t wait to see her shine in her new role!

Saebo 2021 Highlights and Exciting News for 2022!

7 months ago

Dear Saebo Shareowners and Friends –

 

 

We have LOTS of exciting news to share next week, including our first annual letter to shareholders.  But first, let’s take a quick look back at some highlights from 2021:

  • Orders bounced back to pre-pandemic levels, but with a better, more profitable mix of products.
    1. Operating Gross Margin (i.e., after backing out one-time gains due to accounting adjustments) grew to a healthy 57.33%, a remarkable increase of 299+ basis points.
    2. Operating Gross Profit increased 17.3% to $2.39 Million.
    3. Total Gross Profit (including the aforementioned one-time accounting adjustments), increased a whopping 21.9% to $2.49 Million.
    4. And all this without a price increase . . .
  • US Direct-to-Patient orders through our eCommerce site were up another 23% vs. 2020 (and with a 3-year CAGR of 47%!)
  • We ended the year with $450K in cash and $200K available on our line of credit; and with the completion of the current (and potentially final) SE funding round, we anticipate having around $1MM in cash/LOC available for growth as we move toward profitability in 2023.

 

So, while we already made a number of growth investments in 2021:

  • New and improved SaeboStep
  • Additional customer service/sales staff
  • Additional inventory to deal with supply chain issues
  • Investment in the recently launched SaeboStim Spa
  • Additional digital marketing spend
  • Regulatory spend so we can sell more products in more countries internationally

 

We are about to embark on some serious growth initiatives in 2022.

 

Watch this space for DAILY growth initiatives and activities starting this week.

 

Remember, with Saebo, there is NO PLATEAU IN SIGHT!!!

More on our NEW product the SaeboStim Spa

8 months ago

Following a neurological injury, it is common for clients to experience impaired foot or arm function resulting in decreased sensation and/or strength. If the affected limb has limited use, this may lead to impaired communication to the brain, which includes sense of touch, feel, or awareness of movement. Unfortunately, most clients do not receive enough training or stimulation to the affected side which is needed to maximize recovery. For this reason, the SaeboStim Spa is the perfect solution to add to the recovery toolbox.

The SaeboStim Spa consists of 3 components.

  • The first component is the foot or hand bath which consists of 2 equal size bays. Water is filled to cover the entire foot or hand prior to treatment.
  • The second component is the stimulator, complete with an LCD touch screen controls. The stimulator controls the intensity of the stimulation that is sent to the foot or hand via the lead wires.
  • The last component is the black and red rubber lead wires that travel from the stimulator and submerge into the water of each bay. The electrodes do not contact the skin and are submerged in the water near the foot or hand. They are the pathways that provide the electrical current, which you control.

In addition to providing low-level sensory electrical stimulation for clients suffering from stroke and other neurological injuries, the SaeboStim Spa’s specialized waveforms provide treatment for additional conditions including peripheral neuropathy and nerve pain disorders. This breakthrough device can calm the nerves and increase blood flow which allows the nerve cells the potential to recover.

We are off to a great start! So far we have sold 43 SaeboStim Spa units and had our best sales day, selling 16 units yesterday!

Exciting News! New Saebo Product Out Now!

8 months ago


At Saebo, we are thrilled to announce our new product the SaeboStim Spa. This product falls within our electrical stimulation product line but focuses on the feet. The feedback from our customers on electrical stimulation for other extremities is positive in helping them continue their recovery journey. This product is a natural step in servicing the customer’s foot needs and is paired perfectly with one of our fastest-growing products the SaeboStep.

The SaeboStim Spa provides extremely safe, low-level electrical stimulation designed to improve sensation, reduce spasticity, improve function, and decrease pain in the foot. The device works by submerging the involved foot, along with the associated rubber electrodes, into the water for a 30-minute stimulation session.


The early feedback on this product is very positive. Hear from Randy V: 

“I just finished my 5th treatment, and I have to say I believe I am showing some improvement with my gait and less swelling in my foot. I seem to be walking with less drag in my left foot. I’m surprised to see these results in such a short period of time!”

We look forward to hearing more positive customer testimonials soon!

“Saebo has offered me many options to add as valuable tools I can use daily for my in-home therapy after stroke. The customer service is excellent. I’m happy to continue using their equipment and services as I progress through my recovery, which is a lifelong process. Overall I am happy I found this company as it has given me hope that is sometimes hard to find in other places.”

 — Daniel O.


“All the reviews are 5 ***** for a good reason. The SaeboStep changed my outlook on the future and gave me independence. This brace has made it much easier to maneuver daily obstacles that I had to manage with two canes.

I have drop foot on both my feet and was introduced to those awful braces from my Orthopedic MD. They are so outdated and very uncomfortable. They led to more back issues. One of my legs is shorter than the other, and his solution was to add more padding to a brace that was already not a viable solution. 

The SaeboStep gave me the balance and confidence to walk without canes. I am so grateful to Saebo for making it easy to find them online. At 75 years old, the SaeboStep brace made me feel better about myself. They are designed to be used with most footwear and are easily covered by slacks or trousers. Another good point is if you want to be fashionable.

They are a God-sent!”

 — Ingrid M.


“When I purchase a Saebo product, I am always surprised and delighted with myself. The Saebo Mirror Box is a useful tool, and it makes retraining basic hand motions (ex: opening the affected hand) much faster. The SaeboStretch is good for stretching out those spastic muscles, and over time, the affected hand begins to relax. The SaeboStim One is awesome because when you place it in the appropriate area, the "switch on" "switch off" stimulation allows the muscles to get functional/repetitive exercise. Every morning, I go on fitness walks. It's important to wear my SaeboStep because I ALWAYS step heel-toe and make myself go faster. As a TBI thriver (before the SaeboStep), I was constantly dealing with foot drop and hip swing. But over time, with wearing my SaeboStep every day, I got rid of the hip swing and step heel/toe most of the time. Another great therapy tool- the SaeboGlove! My affected hand can barely open independently. With the SaeboGlove on, grasp and release tasks are so much easier. The therapy tools included with the glove (ball and cubes) make therapy even more fun.”

 — Lynsey K.

“I have purchased SaeboGloves, a SaeboStep, SaeboGlide, Saebo Mirror Box, and extra balls for training for individual patients through Saebo’s website. The website is very easy to navigate and understand.

This past summer, I purchased a Saebo Hand Treatment Kit 2.0, which I had to do by phone and email. The representative I dealt with was very helpful and had great patience, as I had a lot of questions with it being such a big purchase. They sent me a very detailed list before I ordered, so I understood exactly what was included. They assisted from the beginning to the end of the order and also followed up to make sure I had actually received the products. I am very happy with the customer service.

In addition to this, Saebo products are amazing! They work! And- the best part is that Saebo has provided current research that shows their products work. Each product comes with a detailed brochure that tells you exactly how to use it. I also love the videos on Saebo’s website- I direct my patients to them on a regular basis.”

 — Annie H.

 

“I bought the SaeboStep for my wife who had a stroke and couldn't walk for months. With the SaeboStep, she rapidly improved her walking and recovered her ankle and left leg. In addition to its effectiveness, the SaeboStep is very convenient to put on and off, elegant and solid.”

 — Hedi L.

 

“The one-on-one video call was VERY helpful as we are navigating using SaeboMAS for the first time in our facility. All the features were explained thoroughly. We look forward to utilizing this amazing tool with our patients!”

MossRehab, a top-ranked rehabilitation hospital in Pennsylvania and top 10 in the U.S., selects Saebo!

10 months ago

Every year, MossRehab partners with the Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania to host The Brain Injury Challenge: Race for Recovery. This annual run, walk, and roll brings together doctors, therapists, nurses, case managers, patients, and family members to honor and raise money for those who suffer from brain injuries. The race raises awareness about brain injury, assists with education on brain injury prevention, education for brain injury survivors, and supports the brain injury resource line. This year, MossRehab purchased a SaeboMAS mini with the proceeds raised from the 5k race! 

The SaeboMAS mini is a lightweight, zero gravity, dynamic mobile arm support that challenges and assists the weakened shoulder and elbow during functional tasks. This compact device was specifically designed for clients suffering from neurological and orthopedic conditions resulting in shoulder and elbow weakness.

The SaeboMAS mini is the ideal home program solution to assist with improving strength, motor recovery, and independence. Additionally, this personal device allows for enhanced independence for self-care, leisure, or occupational tasks like using a computer, eating, drinking, or grooming.


Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at Saebo!

“Due to a spinal cord injury, I was left with foot drop on my right foot. Falling was becoming a common occurrence for me. Fortunately, I never experienced any serious injuries. I was fitted for an orthopedic foot brace that extends into the shoe bed and straps around the calf. I wore it several times and though it helped with the foot drop, if I wore it for long periods of time, my foot felt like it was on fire. It was very painful. I had it adjusted but never achieved any real degree of comfort and would not wear it around the house. Additionally, wearing my favorite jeans became a problem because of the bulky band that attaches the brace to the calf. I kept searching for other solutions and found a couple on Amazon that was serviceable but not with the same degree of safety. Finally, my husband found the SaeboStep via a Google search. He ordered my SaeboStep and it is wonderful. It is easy to use, safe, and doesn’t interfere with long pants or jeans. I feel secure with my SaeboStep and have been successful in finding different shoe styles to wear with it. The SaeboStep is a superior product and well made. I can attest to the fact that their customer service staff is amazing – responsive, supportive, and considerate. Of course, if I had read the directions for my new SaeboStep, to begin with, I would not have had the pleasure of interacting with Saebo’s delightful customer service. My recommendation, buy a SaeboStep, read the directions, put it on, and walk safely and confidently!”

— Sandra Brown

 

“I have been practicing occupational therapy for over 27 years. Saebo is the first company that I have found to provide me with a trial period for many types of equipment to determine how the equipment works with various clients. It was a great experience and allowed me to test out the equipment without having to pay for expensive equipment that may or may not work. The clinical staff was so helpful also. I was able to receive one on one training with the equipment via video call which allowed the clinician to help me to set up the equipment properly to enable the patient to utilize the equipment optimally. I feel as though the experience provided me with a wealth of information with hands-on training.”

Releasing the Tension with the Saebo Spasticity Treatment Kit

11 months ago

Spasticity is a neuromuscular condition usually caused by damage to the portion of the brain or spinal cord that controls voluntary movement. The damage causes a change in the balance of signals between the nervous system and the muscles. It is typically found in people with cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and spinal cord injury. The prevalence of spasticity for following a stroke is 17% to 38% and for following a spinal cord injury is about 40% to 78%.

 

Saebo has put together a product bundle to combat spasticity. Research shows that stretching and strengthening your affected hand can successfully reduce spasticity. With our Saebo Spasticity Treatment Kit, recovery at home just got easier. Is your hand tight? Are you struggling to relax the tone enough to open your hand? If so, the Saebo Spasticity Treatment Kit is right for you!

What’s Included?

  • One SaeboStretch
  • One SaeboStim One
  • Two sets of SaeboStim One Replacement Wings
  • Ten total pairs of SaeboStim One Replacement Gel Pads
  • Mental Practice Exercises



World Stroke Day 2021

11 months ago



Stroke is the leading cause of long-term disability. After patients survive a stroke, their risk of having another stroke increases, along with their likelihood of suffering a serious disability as a result. However, medical and technological advances have made it easier to help patients cope and recover. 

Saebo’s award-winning rehabilitation products offer stroke survivors a second chance to overcome paralysis and regain quality of life. 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. 

"The excitement of being able to do something with her hand independently after fifteen years is so huge for Kathleen and for me."

11 months ago

"My daughter Kathleen was born with Down syndrome. At five years old, she was diagnosed with a very rare neurovascular disease called Moyamoya that caused a series of strokes. After the strokes, Kathleen spent a month in a rehabilitation hospital; she regained her language and ability to walk over the course of the next year, but not her ability to use her left hand. A year later her physical therapist told us not to expect any additional improvements in her ability to use the left hand.

Kathleen is now nineteen years old and still had not regained any hand function, until recently when we got her a SaeboGlove. As soon as we put it on her tiny hand, she was beaming. Suddenly, she could open her hand and pick up blocks! Formerly she couldn’t pick up a single block or even open her hand at all. She, her therapists, and I were all so excited, saying, “Let’s try this! Let’s try that!” For the first time since she was a toddler, she was doing things with her hands without my help. She was able to hold a piece of paper in her left hand and cut with her right hand. After forty minutes, I asked Kathleen if she wanted to take the SaeboGlove off and she said no, she didn’t want to take it off. Usually, she would tire of any therapy after about twenty minutes, but she loves wearing the SaeboGlove. She is so eager to use it every day and she LOVES showing other people how it works.

The excitement of being able to do something with her hand independently after fifteen years is so huge for Kathleen and for me. Now I can dream of her becoming more independent, being able to dress, put on her own jacket. There are so many things that require two hands – even just being able to open her hand flat so she can lean on it is an important gateway to new activities. It used to take so much work just to get her hand open and now she can do it on her own, attend cognitively to everything involved in that movement, and emotionally feel the joy of her accomplishment. I can see the new connections developing in her brain already. Next Kathleen wants to learn how to play the drums. I will gladly listen to her practice all day long. We celebrate these new accomplishments with her. Kathleen never gives up. She is truly my hero!"

Mind Drives Movement. Saebo Offers Free Mental Practice Exercises for All.

12 months ago

Mental practice (MP) is a training approach in which an individual repetitively rehearses a physical skill using only their mind. All movement, sensation, and scenery have the potential to be mentally practiced. Like common strategies known as “visualization” and “imagery,” mental practice triggers the brain’s motor, sensory, and perception centers just like when performing a physical task. Mental practice deserves a top spot on the list of treatment approaches used in therapy. Research supports that MP reduces impairments and improves functional recovery when used in poststroke rehabilitation

 Saebo, Inc. is pleased to offer SaeboMind Mental Practice Exercises, a collection of audio files designed explicitly for neurological recovery. These recordings are offered at no cost to the public because of Saebo’s continued commitment to providing compassionate, evidence-based care for the individuals of the world. Access to the SaeboMind audio files is unlimited, with no purchase necessary.

The SaeboMind catalog offers many familiar activities to choose from. Examples of a few upper extremity activities include handwriting, eating food, petting your animal, and counting money.  A few examples of lower extremity activities include walking, balancing, standing up, and using stairs safely.

SaeboStep Helps All Ages Walk Easier Again!

12 months ago

“My name is Katie and I am a pediatric physical therapist. I have long thought of Saebo as a company geared towards occupational therapy for rehab of the hand/arm. Recently, I attended an in-service by a Saebo representative where I learned about the SaeboStep. Our rep Lanie noted that most clinics she has worked with had used the SaeboStep for post-stroke for helping with foot drop, so she was more than willing to let me have a trial to use with my pediatric population.

Since then, I have used the SaeboStep with several of my older kiddos, some of who have varying forms of Cerebral Palsy. With the SaeboStep donned, I have noticed improved foot clearance during gait in the affected lower extremity and, as a secondary benefit, improvements in arm swing and truncal rotation. Some of the kids have reported that it felt easier to walk, that they enjoyed the low profile of the SaeboStep compared to bulkier SMO’s or Toe-Offs, and that they’d be interested in transitioning to this orthotic.

Thanks, Saebo!

The Revolutionary SaeboFlex On Permanent Display At London Science Museum

12 months ago

The SaeboFlex, a revolutionary hand device for neurological clients, is part of a Medicine Galleries exhibit at the Science Museum in London. Medical innovations from the extraordinary collection of Henry Wellcome and the Science Museum Group are on public display in the world's largest space dedicated to the history of medicine.

The SaeboFlex, a breakthrough hand product designed for individuals suffering from neurological injuries such as stroke, allows patients the ability to incorporate their arm and hand functionally. The SaeboFlex, sold to over 50 countries around the world, is based on the latest advances in neurorehabilitation research documenting the brain's ability to "re-program" itself through high-repetition, functional training. Each year, thousands of patients worldwide with impaired hand function are able to take advantage of the latest research by using Saebo's technology to further exercise and challenge their affected hand in therapy or at home.

"It is such an honor to have the SaeboFlex, on permanent public display at the prestigious Science Museum along with other significant historical medical artifacts spanning hundreds of years," stated Henry Hoffman, Co-Founder of Saebo.


Stroke Survivor Gives His First Thumbs Up!

about 1 year ago

“Coy’s life before his stroke on December 2, 2018, was fun and fulfilling. He gathered regularly with friends and family, was a talented fast-talking auctioneer, traveled all over to tractor shows, and raised a family of goats on a small farm. Like many other stroke survivors, Coy’s stroke caused his right dominant arm and hand to be almost entirely paralyzed.

When someone is unable to move their arm after a stroke, one of the first-line evidence-based interventions a clinician should be having their client do is learn how to do a mirror therapy program. Mirror therapy works by having the stroke survivor’s affected arm placed behind a mirror so they cannot see it. The survivor watches the reflection of their unaffected side in the mirror performing familiar, functional movements while they try to make the same movements at the same time with their affected side

While at first, it might seem like just a gimmick, in reality, this is a fascinating neuroscience rehab tool that has been proven in research but is vastly underutilized in conventional therapy centers! I have been asking my clients to commit to daily use of mirror therapy with Saebo’s Mirror Box. I told him to try to do it at least 5 times per week for about 30 minutes, and I gave him some tasks to do with his hand. 

Shortly after starting mirror therapy with the Saebo Mirror Box in my clinic and at home, Coy’s once flaccid hand showed a positive breakthrough: he could lift up his thumb! Not just once, but several times! The Saebo Mirror Box had to have been one of the jumper cables! Coy and his family are now starting to see more sparks ignite in his arm and hand. He is now able to more successfully grip his walker in his right affected hand. All of these small steps are amounting to big changes. They are also contributing to his growing personal optimism and outlook in his recovery.

I don’t see that Coy’s progress is going to slow down any time soon, and I’ll be sure to keep you posted on how he is doing in future announcements. Stroke survivors…the way I see it, just like Coy, HOPE IS ON THE HORIZON for you any day now! As with so many things in life that take dedicated commitment before you see it pay off, mirror therapy is no exception. Mirror therapy should be utilized by clinicians and stroke survivors throughout the continuum of care as an essential tool not to be overlooked.

Stroke Survivors…I want you to see it. Believe it. Achieve it using mirror therapy. Share the same spirit of my client Coy by giving a thumb’s up with him, proclaiming there is NO PLATEAU INSIGHT!”

A Closer Look at Saebo’s Dynamic Orthoses

about 1 year ago

Stroke rehabilitation gloves and dynamic splints can give patients the instant opportunity to incorporate their hands for functional grasping and releasing throughout the day.  Because patients can incorporate these gloves and dynamic splints into occupational therapy as well as everyday tasks, they make it easier to achieve independence during their stroke recovery. 

The cutting-edge SaeboGlove helps clients suffering from neurological and orthopedic injuries incorporate their hands functionally in therapy and at home. The proprietary tension system extends the client’s fingers and thumb following grasping. The lightweight, low-profile functional design is just one of the many innovative features that are offered with the SaeboGlove.


The SaeboFlex allows individuals suffering from neurological impairments, such as stroke, the ability to incorporate their hands functionally in therapy and at home. This unique orthosis positions the wrist and fingers into extension in preparation for object manipulation. The user is able to grasp objects by voluntarily flexing his or her fingers. Once the fingers relax (stop gripping), the extension spring system assists in re-opening the hand to release the object.


The revolutionary SaeboStretch dynamic resting hand splint helps neurologically-impaired clients maintain or improve motion while minimizing joint damage and pain. Saebo’s energy-storing technology allows individuals suffering from spasticity to stretch comfortably and safely resulting in increased motivation and compliance.


Saebo’s dynamic orthoses are an excellent choice for helping clients protect their joints while improving mobility and function. For more information, please visit our website at www.saebo.com

The SaeboGlove is Life-Changing for All Ages

about 1 year 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.”

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

about 1 year 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 year 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.

Saebo Product Gives Hope

about 1 year 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

over 1 year 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!

over 1 year 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!

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

over 1 year 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

over 1 year 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!

over 1 year 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!
