Sensory Stimulation. Boost arm and hand recovery.

The SaeboStim Micro provides sensory electrical stimulation (SES) to the arm and hand using a specialised Electro-Mesh Garment. The unique Electro-Mesh material is not only soft and comfortable to wear at rest, but also during activities.


The Garments consist of an elbow sleeve (arm stimulation) and glove (hand stimulation). The material is highly conductive and is made of silver treated nylon fibres blended with Dacron®. The stimulation is delivered into the elbow sleeve and glove by a uniquely designed stimulator. Clients suffering from impaired function, weakness and spasticity can benefit from the much-needed stimulation.

Are You Stimulating the Affected Arm Enough?

  • Acute patients with hemiparesis only USE THEIR AFFECTED UPPER LIMB an average of 3.3 HOURS PER DAY. Lang, C. J of Neurol Phs Ther, 2007.


  • During sub-acute rehab, stroke survivors completed activity-related arm training for an AVERAGE OF 4 MINUTES PER SESSION during therapy. Hayward, KS & Brauer, SG. Clinical Rehabil, 2015
  • Acute patients less than 14 days following stroke USED THEIR AFFECTED LIMB ONLY 38 MIN. (7%) OF A 9-HOUR DAY. Berhhardt, J. J Rehabil Med, 2007.



  • Research shows that stroke survivors perform very few ARM MOVEMENTS during therapy ranging from 23 TO 32 REPETITIONS PER SESSION. Kimberly et al. J Rehabil Res Dev, 2010, Lang et al. Arch Phys Med Rehabil, 2009.

Improve Function. Improve Life.

Impaired function from a neurological injury such as stroke may result in both sensory and motor deficits. Limited use of the hand or arm can typically lead to impaired sensory communication to the brain (touch, feel, aware of joint movement). Research shows that sensory electrical stimulation (SES) can be an effective treatment strategy for improving sensory and motor function.


With SES, the main goal is to maximise input by providing stimulation at very low-level (i.e., without producing a muscle contraction). Studies show that providing SES to an impaired nervous system can prime the cortex ultimately leading to improve neuroplasticity, motor recovery and function.

Why use SaeboStim Micro?

  • Decrease spasticity
  • Improve motor function
  • Increase sensation
  • Improve inattention and neglect
  • Increased cortical plasticity and motor excitability
  • Decrease swelling and pain
  • Normalise hand temperature

Prime the Brain. Enhance 

neuroplasticity. Elevate recovery.

Improved outcomes are associated with increased excitability of the affected hemisphere. Interventions that focus on re-balancing the communication between both hemispheres are likely to lead to improved recovery.


Priming is a technique used to enhance the brain’s ability to re-balance the 2 hemispheres following a stroke. Priming interventions include invasive and non-invasive techniques and can be administered prior to or during therapy.
