Oceanside, NY, July 24, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Saebo-Flex technology allows patients with very little hand and arm function to immediately begin performing task-oriented activities that result in new pathways to the brain.
Oceanside Care Center remains the only place where stroke-rehab patients in Nassau County can benefit from the special style of rehab made available by Saebo-Flex technology. For years Oceanside Care Center has offered top notch stroke-rehab for people from all over New York State. Since acquiring the Saebo-Flex, the only one of its kind in the area, OCC has taken it’s stroke-rehab to an even higher level.
Stroke is the leading cause for long-term disability in the United States. It affects no less than 700,000 Americans every year, who are often left with little ability to use their hands effectively. Saebo-Flex is a custom built orthosis that is mechanical yet not electric. It positions the wrist and fingers in advance of functional activities. With the help of Saebo-Flex, a patient can grasp things by flexing his/her fingers.
“The Saebo-Flex is a big draw,” explained Kellie O’Connor, Director of Admissions at Oceanside Care Center. As the only sub-acute in the area offering this technology, there is no doubt we have a leg up on everyone else when it comes to stroke-rehab.”
