Hocoma and Saebo Partner to Deliver Compact, Affordable Rehabilitation Solution for Upper Extremities

ZURICH & CHARLOTTE, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hocoma and Saebo today announced a partnership to improve the training
possibilities for patients with moderate to mild impairments of the
upper extremities. Together, the SaeboMas Mini and the ArmeoSenso
deliver an easy-to-use, compact solution at an affordable price.

“Saebo is committed to helping patients around the globe achieve a new
level of independence,” said Henry Hoffman, co-founder of Saebo.
“Together with an industry leader such as Hocoma, we believe we can
maximize the potential of our affordable and evidence-based solutions.”

“We are very excited to be working with Saebo,” said Hocoma CEO and
co-founder Dr. Gery Colombo. “Neurological disorders afflict thousands
of people each year and by teaming up with another leading player in the
industry, we expect to be able to help even more patients recover faster
and with better long-term outcomes than conventional rehabilitation
therapy can offer.”

In the future, Saebo and Hocoma plan to deepen their partnership.
Further solutions are expected to be optimized so that they complement
each other as perfectly as the SaeboMas Mini and the ArmeoSenso. Dr.
Gery Colombo added: “Our ultimate goal is to provide all patients with a
compact, affordable rehabilitation solution – regardless of the specific
body parts affected by neurological damage.”

The new partnership can be experienced live at Rehabweek in London from
July 17-21.
