That is awesome!  Was your hand clenched before you started, or just non-functional? It looked to me like your hand got red on top after wearing it awhile. Is it comfortable to wear?  Was it hard to learn how to use it?  Sorry for all of the questions,but I have been trying to decide if a Saebo is right for me or a Bioness. Becky

it is relatively comfortable but should be fitted by a specialist certified by Saebo..My hand was mostly clenched but loosens up after  use.. I've been taught to turn my head to my weak side while holding my eyes on something to the left. A few repetitions loosens my left hand,My neuro chiropractor taught me that trick. Bioness is an estim device. this is purely mechanical.I have elbow and shoulder issues too.

That is very interesting about turning your head to your weak side while holding your eyes on something to the left. My husband seems to be walking the same path as you.  He so much wanted to use the Saebo glove, but it was too small.  He hasn't decided what to do about something similar. He is taking a 3 month therapy break, but doing home therapy every day and going to the gym also two or three days a week.  I saw your video.  Maybe that Saebo product will be better for him. Thank you for sharing.

look up the hanger company, they will fit your husband for the glove,right down to the fingers,then a prescription from the dr would be sent to cover the cost, if the upper arm piece is added the 

insurance will likely cover the whole thing,easier.A secret we found out although the upper arm piece is not required in every situation.I can now pickup and drop the foam balls and am beginning to do it with no device on my hand as well.Call Saebo to find the authorized rep and therapist in your area,they were very helpful to me.
