This 30-minute continuing education course will introduce you to the basic principles of the SaeboStretch, evidence-based research concerning the purpose and use of dynamic splints for neurological recovery, and reasons to avoid static splinting for the upper extremity with spasticity. This introductory CEU course is intended for medical professionals (e.g. OT/OTA, PT/PTA, Physicians, Orthotists) directly related to the rehabilitation of a patient or client. To participate in this course and receive credit, the participant must be a licensed, treating clinician. Following completion of this course and a ≥80% score on the quiz, the learner will receive a certificate. You will have 90 days to complete this course. This course will provide evidence-based research on splinting for upper limbs with spasticity, why the SaeboStretch is designed to assist clients with spasticity, and why dynamic splinting is required for clients with spasticity in their hand.


Upon Completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the stretch reflex and spasticity

  • Identify and/or explain EBR related to splinting neurological patients

  • Identify and/or explain EBR related to stretching for neurological patients

  • Discuss EBR and application to preparatory activities for therapy purposes

  • Describe what the SaeboStretch is and its components

  • Describe the features and benefits of the SaeboStretch


  • Brief overview of the evidence-based research behind the stretch reflex and spasticity

  • Brief overview of the evidence-based research behind splinting a spastic upper limb

  • Reasons why static splinting does not work for neurological recovery

  • Introduction to the SaeboStretch

  • Brief overview of the evidence-based research behind dynamic splinting for the neurologically impaired upper limb

  • Review of presentation handout for quiz

  • 10-question quiz
