What Is The X10™?
TO GET X10 FOR YOUR RECOVERY CLICK HERE.
The X10 is an advanced computerized machine used in your own home. Since its introduction the X10 has enabled thousands of patients to quickly regain two of the most important functions following knee surgery… range of motion and strength, without pain.
The X10 speeds up recovery of both range of motion and strength so much that restoring the range of motion requires 3-4 weeks on the X10 vs. six (6)+ months for standard therapy.
When used for both pre-surgical and post surgical strengthening X10 can more than restore the full preoperative strength in seven weeks. With typical physical therapy there is a 50% deficit at one month and a 30% deficit for one to more than 10 years.
Why is this so Important? Range of motion is important because it determines the potential to engage in activities. Strength is important because it enables you to actually do the activities.
To simply get up from a chair you need slightly more than 90 degrees range of motion, but unless your legs are strong enough to lift your body you cannot get up from the chair without using your arms.
Why Must Range of Motion Be Quickly Restored?
Regaining range of motion is a race against scar tissue formation. Scar tissue is a dense fibrous connective tissue that cannot stretch. It forms in the very early postoperative period. Scar tissue can be disrupted and prevented from forming during the first few weeks when it is immature. If not disrupted, it permanently limits your daily activities.
The ideal time for patients to make great progress is early, before scar tissue matures into thick fibers. However, many patients are not able to make use of the first few weeks post-surgery because of pain, putting their recovery at risk. The X10 bypasses this problem because it causes no therapeutic pain allowing patients to begin restoring their range of motion the day after their surgery.
