Education Resources, Inc. is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Saebo, Inc. offering a new online course to train and certify therapists to use Saebo’s Functional Dynamic Orthoses:
Saebo UE Orthoses – Improving UE Motor Recovery Following Neurological Injury – Online Course
The certification was developed to provide occupational therapists, physical therapists and assistants with practical experience and training to incorporate the latest evidence based treatment approaches for UE neurological rehabilitation to benefit patients. The course will review current research findings related to the treatment of the hemiparetic UE, teach participants to identify which patients with a variety of diagnoses will benefit, teach participants how to correctly fit and adjust the Orthoses (SaeboFlex, SaeboReach, and SaeboStretch), as well as teach participants to establish patient specific treatment plans that can be immediately incorporated into clinical practice.
Participants may earn eight CEU hours while becoming certified.
“Our partnership with ERI comes at a very exciting time. As we strive to improve the education experience for our therapists, we recognize the importance of adding an online self-study platform. This new format provides the therapists with an opportunity to access the same effective training that is provided at our Live Certification Courses, but with the increased flexibility and ease of completing the course at their own pace, stated Henry Hoffman, Co-Founder of Saebo.”
The course includes video lecture and lab activities that may be done at the therapist’s convenience. Henry Hoffman, MS, OT/L, the inventor and co-founder of Saebo and Shannon L. Scott, OTD, OTR/L, faculty in the Occupational Therapy Program at StonyBrook University teach the course and facilitate the lab component.
Education Resources, Inc. is an approved provider for Live and Distance Learning-Independent courses by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), and has been a long-time provider of continuing education courses to help therapists improve outcomes for patients with neurological diagnoses.
