Crain’s Detroit Business Publishes Article about X10 “Mend the Bend”
I am delighted to share with you a recently published article about X10™ Knee Rehabilitation. Crain’s Detroit Business did a marvelous job of capturing the entrepreneurial spirit of our organization, and the dramatic impact on patient recovery from our rehab device. Paul and I are indeed friends and we succeeded in our mission to mend the bend.
Below is a link to the article:
A few article highlights include:
- Halley Orthopedics was founded by Paul Ewing and Dr. David K. Halley.
- X10 is based on the word “extend”
- The machine uses pressure to flex the knee to the point where fluid in the knee is released thereby avoiding the buildup of scar tissue that causes knees to deteriorate after surgery.
- A computer screen displays biofeedback information, mainly pressure and
angle readings, so patients can monitor their progress and adjust the settings.
- Halley and Ewing are from rival universities; Halley from Ohio State and Ewing from Michigan.
- According to Dr. James J. Verner, “what normally takes eight to 12 weeks of physical therapy is getting done in three or four.”
