What Is The X10™?


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.

The X10 Experience

X10 patients are relaxed, motivated and comfortable in their own home. The X10 senses when patients are just 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 your own recovery coach who will be your guide to a complete recovery. Additionally we provide each patient with access to our private online discussion group, and enroll them in our acclaimed email series The X10 Companion. This email series provides each patient with a carefully timed, personalized guide to pre-surgery preparation and post surgery recovery. The X10 Companion covers topics like scar tissue management, icing tools and option, wearable fitness technology, getting a good night’s sleep, losing weight after knee replacement, and many other ways to help you turn a new knee into a new you.

The X10 not only helps you with the physical part of your healing, but with the mental 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. Click here for pictures of the X10 machine.

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.
