A custom-fabricated orthosis that is nonelectrically based and designed to accommodate patients who have neurological impairments such as stroke is available through Saebo Inc, Charlotte, NC. The SaeboFlex is built to allow patients with neurological impairments to incorporate their hand functionality into therapy and at home by supporting weakened wrist, hand, and fingers. The company’s site notes that the mechanical SaeboFlex positions the wrist and fingers into extension in preparation for functional activities. The user is able to grasp an object by voluntarily flexing their fingers.

The product’s extension spring system is intended to help assist in reopening the hand to release the object.
