The Origin of the X10 Knee Recovery System™
by Dr. David K. Halley
The Origin of The X10
I worked with the founder of modern hip replacement, Sir John Charnley, early in my career. It was a life-changing experience as I witnessed the revolutionary nature of Dr. Charnley’s work first hand in an extended residency in Wrightington, England. Essentially this was the birth of modern joint replacement. Many would follow, applying the genius of Dr. Charnley to hips, shoulders, ankles and, of course knees. Working directly with Dr. Charnley created the foundation on which as a young man, me, based his long and highly successful orthopedic surgery career in Columbus, Ohio.
Examining the Origin of The X10
We filmed this short interview to share our game-changing contribution to the future of knee replacement recovery, the X10 Knee Rehabilitation Machine. Here I explain the problem that has plagued orthopedic surgeons since the dawn of knee replacement surgery: patient recovery post-surgery. I also detail the medical conditions that foster the body’s creation of scar tissue after knee replacement. Finally, I explain the medical value of PMKR technology (Pressure Modulated Knee Rehabilitation and specifically X10 Therapy).
Because of Dr. Charnley and the orthopedic surgeons and medical professionals who followed him there have been thousands of updates to processes in the operating room, robotic surgeries, controls for infection, and prosthesis improvement. However it was the post surgery care that lagged behind. With PMKR technology, recovery from knee surgery finally catches up.
