Neuro-physiotherapy

People who have suffered a stroke, head injury or other neurological condition affecting their mobility may require neuro-physiotherapy, which is provided by our team of physiotherapists at the Oxford Centre for Enablement (OCE) in partnership with PhysioFunction.

One of the programmes that we run is the Saebo Arm Programme.

Saebo Arm Programme

The Saebo arm training programme is available to stroke patients currently under rehabilitation programmes at the Oxford Centre for Enablement.

It enables patients who have suffered a neurological trauma, such as stroke, to begin to regain some of the muscle tone and co-ordination to the affected arm.

The SaeboFlex orthosis was originally developed in the United States and is an occupational therapy tool that has proven highly effective – even for patients who were advised that their chances for improvement were virtually non-existent.
