Saebo, Inc. is a medical device company primarily engaged in the discovery, development and commercialization of affordable and novel clinical solutions designed to improve mobility and function in individuals suffering from neurological and orthopedic conditions. With a vast network of Saebo-trained clinicians spanning six continents, Saebo has helped over 100,000 clients around the globe achieve a new level of independence.
In 2001, two occupational therapists had one simple, but powerful goal – to provide neurological clients access to transformative and life changing products.
At the time, treatment options for improving arm and hand function were limited. The technology that did exist was expensive and inaccessible for home use. With inadequate therapy options often leading to unfavorable outcomes, health professionals routinely told their clients that they have “reached a plateau” or “no further gains can be made”. The founders believed that it was not the clients who had plateaued, but rather their treatment options had plateaued.
Saebo’s commitment – “No Plateau in Sight” – was inspired by this mentality; and the accessible, revolutionary solutions began.
Saebo’s revolutionary product offering was based on the latest advances in rehabilitation research. From the SaeboFlex which allows clients to incorporate their hand functionally in therapy or at home, to the SaeboMAS, an unweighting device used to assist the arm during daily living tasks and exercise training, “innovation” and “affordability” can now be used in the same sentence.
Over the last ten years, Saebo has grown into a leading global provider of rehabilitative products created through the unrelenting leadership and the strong network of clinicians around the world. As we celebrate our history and helping more than 100,000 clients regain function, we are growing this commitment to affordability and accessibility even further by making our newest, most innovative products more accessible than ever.
Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to restructure its neural connections at any given moment. It allows nerve cells to adjust their formation in response to novelty and challenged.
This video talks about the key principles of neuroplasticity and the 6 simple ways to increase neuroplasticity.

What if your brain at 77 were as plastic as it was at 7? What if you could learn Mandarin with the ease of a toddler or play Rachmaninoff without breaking a sweat? A growing understanding of neuroplasticity suggests these fantasies could one day become reality. Neuroplasticity may also be the key to solving diseases like Alzheimer’s, depression, and autism. In this program, leading neuroscientists discuss their most recent findings and both the tantalizing possibilities and pitfalls for our future cognitive selves.

Welcome to the Northern Brain Injury Association’s webcast on ‘flooding’, created to help you assist survivors of brain injury who are experiencing flooding by teaching them to identify their triggers, control their exposure and manage their anxiety.

And for those suffering from a TBI it can be difficult to explain how they feel inside.
Every 21 seconds, one person in the USA sustains a brain injury.
And each year over 2.5 million Americans visit the emergency room after suffering a traumatic brain injury, with an estimated 282,000 require hospitalization.
While every TBI is different, and everyone will experience their injury in a unique way, “The Invisible Rain Cloud” attempts to explain some of the common symptoms and feelings an individual may face in their life after brain injury.
The video was created by New York brain injury lawyers De Caro & Kaplen, LLP (https://brainlaw.com), who have been advocating on behalf of individuals suffering from a brain injury for over 30 years.

[VIDEO] Woman with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Improves with Neurofeedback — Even Over 9 Years Later – YouTube
April has suffered debilitating symptoms for over nine years since an illness left her with a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). After just six weeks of neurofeedback, she has experienced significant improvement. This interview with April, her daughter, and Mike Cohen of the Center for Brain Training explores the power neurofeedback can have in people’s lives, even many years after a brain injury occurs.
Neurofeedback, or brain training, can help people suffering repercussions of traumatic brain injury, post-concussive syndrome, and stroke.
A transcript of the video is available below:
A: She is a walking miracle for sure.
A: I mean, even now if you look at her actual MRI or anything, there is so much damage that people thought that she should be a vegetable or something like that by now. So after she got out of the hospital she couldn’t read, she couldn’t write, she had no depth perception. She was very out of it. She didn’t remember our names or anything like that.
M: What are you both seeing change since you’ve been training your brain with the neurofeedback?
Ap: My communication is lot better. My finding direction is a lot better.
A: I think she’s becoming more of herself again. She’s getting some of her personality back. She has always been pretty feisty. She keeps going no matter what happens. She seems to be getting a lot better. She can tell her right from left, which is a big deal. She is becoming a lot more sharp, I guess, mentally. She definitely has a ways to go, but this is improving her for sure. I think that a lot of things are possible with her because, before she got sick, she had so much drive and she was very inventive and creative and never let anything in life stop her. She’s still like that now, but she is really having a hard time putting her thoughts together and being organized, and the sharper her brain gets, I think that she could take that a long way.
M: When I met you, one of the things I noticed, April, was that you were almost like in a fog.
Ap: Yes. I’m much more alert.
M: So you are better able to communicate with other people now?
Ap: Yes, much better. Sometimes I have to hear what they said, and I can hear what they said but I couldn’t process it all. This is very encouraging. It’s amazing how I am seeing the brain come back around.
M: Did any of your doctors ever mention anything like this?
M: Did any of the other therapies ever help your brain like this?
M: I am just excited for you that your brain seems to be waking up.
M: Is that what it seems like?
Ap: Yes, in so many ways. I mean, I had other things; it’s very interesting, like the taste and the smell. You know, that didn’t really work.
A: Yes she had no taste, no smell for the most part. Even her vision changes all the time. Like when she goes to the doctor, everything is different all the time, so they can never give her glasses or contacts that actually work the whole time, which is really interesting, but it seems like since she has been doing the brain therapy, some of that has been coming back.
M: And you are interested in medical and going to a med school, is that right?
A: Yes, definitely. So the brain is definitely something that I am really interested in now, especially after seeing this, because doctors don’t seem to use this, like you had said, so I would definitely be interested in learning more and seeing how far you can go with it.
What is Neuroplasticity? Dr. Matthew Antonucci from Plasticity Brain Centers of Orlando, Florida gives us a breakdown of what the term really means.
