"A little over 5 months ago, I had total knee replacements on both my knees. Having both knees replaced at the same time basically crippled me, and standing, walking short distances, and trying to traverse stairs was extremely difficult. My PT exercises helped, but the Kneewell was a great way to stretch my leg muscles while still sitting in a recliner. I could control the stretch, control the pain level of the stretch, and quickly increased the length of the stretches and noticeably reduced pain. At my 6 week checkup, I was walking unassisted and the Doctor was very impressed with my range of motion. I was able stop taking prescription pain medications after two weeks. Now it’s been just over 5 months, and I am biking, walking several miles and back volunteering. The Kneewell will greatly increase your range of motion with you in control of your stretch and pain discomfort."
"I have used the Kneewell with 70 post op knee patients with ages varying from 22 to 83 and have had excellent results. I have found that when I use it from the onset of therapy the patient has better early extension of the knee joint resulting in a more successful outcome. I also find that using the thigh strap to provide a longer, static extension stretch allows the patient to stretch with less pain and increase the volume of stretching time throughout the day. Our experience shows that patients who use the Kneewell post operatively have increased knee extension more quickly and with less pain compared to not using this device. We have found this device to be particularly effective in the first 2 weeks post op when they are unable to tolerate prone positions due to pain, swelling, and incisional healing."
"I used the Kneewell. Let me first thank you for allowing me some time with the device. It truly does help with the rehab work after knee replacement surgery. I was able to get my hands on it, when I was about 4 months into the rehab process, a process according to my physician, will take a year. At the completion of surgery, regaining flexibility becomes an immediate goal. Since initially flexibility is extremely limited, use of the knee stretcher would greatly enhance the healing process. I found that to be true. Upon receiving the stretcher, I used it in the evenings, basically while watching television. It did indeed help with the process of regaining that treasured flexibility."
"My patient had a badly deformed knee with a 10-15 degree flexion contracture. I just saw him back 6 weeks from surgery and he has full extension. I would definitely be interested in using the Kneewell going forward."
"I recently had a total knee replacement and found that the Kneewell was very helpful in getting my knee straight and keeping it straight at a critical time in my recovery. I used the Kneewell device numerous times daily. It was extremely valuable and helpful in extending my knee which is the most important part of early recovery. My physical therapist was impressed at how quickly my knee straightened with the use of this device. I gladly recommend the Kneewell to anyone that is having knee replacement surgery."
"I am writing to you to thank you for creating a knee surgery device to help with rehabilitation after knee replacement surgery. It’s a god send device. I personally have a daughter in law who works for a large Twin City rehabilitation center. At a family get together just lately, we were discussing as to how I was using the Kneewell device. She wanted to see the device and was very impressed with the simplicity and structure of the knee stretcher. She was surprised and wondered why she had never heard of the device before. The simplicity of the device made it easy to use even for this 80 year old. I became familiar with the device during the PT. On the last day of rehab with nothing helping, the therapist introduced me to the knee stretcher. I used it three times a day for 10 minutes at a time. My knees are not perfect, but have improved a lot. I could not even put my legs up on a hassock because of the bend of the knees, but now I can put my legs on a hassock and have them there for long period of time with little or no pain and I continue to improve with each use. This is an excellent piece of equipment. Thank You!"
