Know Stroke Podcast -S4E3-Henry Hoffman On this episode we were joined by Henry Hoffman,MS,OTR/L co-inventor and co-founder of Saebo, Inc. We were introduced to Henry through Dr. Carolyn Brown, a previous guest of the podcast in season one. Saebo, Inc. is a medical device company primarily engaged in the discovery, development and commercialization of affordable and novel clinical solutions designed to improve mobility and function in individuals suffering from neurological and orthopedic conditions. With a vast network of Saebo-trained clinicians spanning six continents, Saebo has helped over 100,000 clients around the globe achieve a new level of independence. About our Guest: Henry graduated from D’Youville College in Buffalo, NY in 1997 with a Masters degree in occupational therapy. Since graduation, he has worked in a variety of settings including home health, acute, sub-acute, and outpatient rehab. Prior to leaving Burke Rehabilitation Hospital in New York, he worked as a clinical specialist in orthopedic medicine and manual therapy of the upper quadrant. Henry left Burke in the fall of 2002 to co-launch Saebo. This was a great discussion and as co-hosts we share a common mission with Henry to continue to dispel the believe that stroke recovery has an end when a “plateau” is reached. Listen in to learn how Henry and his team are on a mission to offer new affordable treatment options that deliver tangible results, and offer hope and support for continued recovery and improved function.

Ukraine and our first asynchronous Stroke News Update “On the Road” Episode

Season 3 Episode 6 -On The Road! Before we get to our "Stroke in the News" this week we would be remiss not to pause and reflect that this episode is being recorded asynchronously amidst the backdrop of war in Ukraine. As we all finally sense an end to the COVID-19 crisis, we find ourselves in the midst of another one, and the extent of which is still unclear. It is hard to put into words what it means to watch the invasion of a sovereign nation, and honestly we’ve all struggled with the immediate human costs and certainly more lives will be senselessly lost.  Also realizing the  potential implications of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, we have found hope in the strength of the Ukrainian people and we stand with them in support of democracy.  In the news...Boston Accents?  Give us a review if you like the  pure content of this podcast, but don't pick on Bostonians (and David)  please if you find Boston accents "irritating"- this was in the news this week...Resources mentioned in this episode: ISC Stroke Connection- Post Acute Rehab After Stroke-Getting it Right and why I believe they should have worked harder to offer this free for survivors.  My opinions here on The Know Stroke Blog  Healthline reporter Cathy Cassata article on Peloton Instructor Bradley Rose Stroke with PFO spotlight  UConn.
