Indianapolis. Tampa. Orlando… New Jersey anyone?
If we cannot get X10 to you, maybe you can get to X10.

The X10 Knee Recovery System™ has been helping knee patients since 2010, at first only in the state of Michigan. Now we can get X10 to people in 19 states. People use X0 for recovery from a single or bilateral knee replacement (pre-hab and rehab), to avoid a Manipulation Under Anesthesia, or to recovery after a Manipulation Under Anesthesia. Additionally X10 can be the right in-home recovery solution for ACL surgeries and Patella Fractures. For those beyond our core geography the best solution is to come to us in one way or another. A few accounts of knee recovery tourism are presented here.
They come from all four corners, near and far, criss-crossing this beautiful land of ours, because they felt inspired and empowered. Who are they? What do they want?
They are Ed from Pennsylvania, who searched for the very best recovery for his bilateral knee replacement surgery — yes, both at once. Ed wanted a fast rehab /recovery so he could get back to his active life. Finding value in flying to Orlando, Florida, he was set up for success with an X10 “Home” Knee Recovery Program, remote coaching sessions, and he was off to his amazingly speedy recovery! In this case, a temporary home in paradise, complete with palm trees and sunny weather. His full story is truly one for the record books!
For a patient from Louisiana, it was her mother who was researching options to help her daughter increase her knee’s mobility after surgery. Well, thanks to mom, she drove a few states over to be with her and ordered an X10 Recovery as well. Time spent with family, and focused attention on her knee for just a few weeks, made this journey all worthwhile. Her desire to climb mountains and view beautiful summits was brought closer to fruition with every recovery session and her X10 Coach cheering her on.
Jodi from Los Angeles experienced a sudden fall, resulting in weeks of immobility to put it all back together, which created a “sticky knee, that found hope in this great recovery tool X10. Jodi flew to Indiana to be with family and improve her range of motion. She was so inspired by others who utilized the gentle recovery system to regain their range, their strength, and their lives back. Now she’s determined to get HER life back, one leg-sweep at a time on the X10.
Nancy and Cathy came to X10 from Arizona (See Cathy’s video below). The X10 was a life-changer as you will see. In fact Cathy has become like a family member for our recovery team in Michigan. She helped pave the way for future knee recovery tourism for many in need of our help.
So here we are, and there YOU are. Is there space between? Quite possibly. We are a private, made-in-America (made in Michigan) company serving the Midwest, Florida and the Northeast. Can we strategize and find creative ways to help your recovery with X10 happen, if you want it? You bet! Anything is possible!
Be encouraged by these true stories, these wonderful people. Where there’s a will, and a strong “want to,” there is a way.
Remote Coaching, Wherever You are on X10
For our knee recovery tourism patients the age of telemedicine is here — combining the worlds of smart phones, tablets, and smart robotic rehab machines that put more control in YOUR hands. When you run your X10 machine we can see what you are doing so we can work with you very closely no matter where you are. It’s truly an exciting time!
What to expect from an X10 Knee Recovery Program? Typically, it’s 2 – 3 weeks of dedicated time for a successful knee recovery. People who’ve had the best results will use X10 for three sessions a day, 30 minutes each. By utilizing smart tech, we can remotely view, talk, text, and coach our clients throughout their recoveries. Our X10 Coaching Team supports you to make improvements and track your progress, also providing helpful “tips and tricks” for you to get the most out of the entire program, beginning to end.
You won’t have to travel to get X10 forever. We’re growing each day to reach more people in need of our remarkable program. But for now, consider a trip to beautiful Michigan, sunny Florida or one of the many other states where we CAN get X10 to you. Let us help you get back to yourself, back to full strength.
The X10 Meta-Blog
We call it a “Meta-Blog” because we step back and give you a broad perspective on all aspects of knee health, surgery and recovery.
In this one-of-a-kind blog we gather together great thinkers, doers, writers related to Knee Surgery, Recovery, Preparation, Care, Success and Failure. Meet physical therapists, coaches, surgeons, patients, and as many smart people as we can gather to create useful articles for you. Whether you have a surgery upcoming, in the rear-view mirror, or just want to take care of your knees to avoid surgery, you should find some value here.
