Post knee surgery rehab now has a new machine to increase range of motion (ROM) and strength in a matter of 3 weeks. That leaves you with more functional rehab with a physical therapist. Learn about the x10 knee therapy machine with PJ Ewing.
The X10 is a specialized knee rehab equipment co-developed by his dad and a coworker of the orthopedic surgeon who invented knee replacement surgery. The x10 machine is about the size of arecliner and goes usually into a patients home for 2-5 weeks. It helps prepare the knee for surgery butusually is used to regain Range of Motion post knee replacement , patellafracture or ACL surgery as well as rebuild the strength.
He discusses how the computer and the knee apparatus can sense the resistance in real time, pain and end range of motion, ROM, and then adjust in real time to maximize where you are and then increase it all in pain free motions. The company has coaches and doctors that oversee each treatment and can tweak the program for each person each visit.
The machine can sense the resistance decrease and it has been programmed to know that might be because of pain. So it holds it there for 10 seconds and alternates to flexion and extension terminal end points.
Usually a patient is doing this pain free treatment 35 minutes a day, 3 times a day so it doesn’t take but a couple weeks to get your range of motion (110-115 degrees) back (without having to have a MUA of knee scar tissue) and so your physical therapy is now on walking and strength instead of regaining painful ROM.
