What Is The X10?

The X10 is an advanced computerized knee recovery machine used in your own home for recovery after nearly all knee surgeries.

Since its introduction nearly 15 years ago, 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!

RANGE OF MOTION The X10 speeds up the 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.

STRENGTH 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 (without the X10), there is a 50% deficit at one month and a 30% deficit for one to more than 10 years.

Range of motion determines the potential to engage in activities. Strength enables you to actually do the activities.


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 early postoperative period. Scar tissue can be disrupted and prevented from forming during the first few weeks after surgery when it is immature. If not disrupted, it permanently limits your daily activities.

When Should You Use the X10?

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.

The X10 Experience

  • X10 patients are relaxed, motivated and comfortable in their own homes.
  • The X10 senses when patients are approaching their pain threshold and then stops, holds and reverses, protecting the patient from sharp excessive pain, swelling, and setbacks.
  • The lack of pain encourages continued use and progress. The result is a superb recovery.
  • The X10 is user-friendly, and comes with a remote physical therapist who will be your guide to a complete recovery.
  • Additionally, we enroll each patient in our acclaimed email series The X10 Companion

The X10 not only helps you with the physical part of your healing, but with the mental part as well. Seeing continuous progress every time you are on the X10 machine keeps you motivated, inspired, and relaxed. Instead of dreading therapy, most X10 patients find their recovery to be an uplifting experience.

X10 patients quickly regain a full range of motion after surgery. They accomplish this in just a few weeks. Our patients achieve full strength in approximately one month as opposed to six months or more with standard therapy.

The X10 is available through your insurance or as a short-term rental. Most patients do not need the X10 for more than 17 days.
