How is the SaeboGlove different from the SaeboFlex?
The SaeboGlove is designed for hands that are very loose and flexible, with little - to no tone. The SaeboFlex is designed for hands that have much more tone.
The SaeboFlex is a high profile, out-rigger style splint made from durable rigid parts used to support and assist individuals with increased tone. The SaeboGlove is a low profile splint made from soft fabric and semi-rigid parts used for patients that do not exhibit hypertonicity.
The SaeboGlove parts do not have the material strength needed to re-extend the digits following grasping of a client that exhibits increased tone. These clients would need the SaeboFlex.
