Each year advancements are made in every medical field imaginable making improvements in speed, efficiency and cost. Who better to revolutionize the knee recovery process than a group of physical therapists?
With over 60 years of collective experience in physical therapy, the creators of GoKnee have expertise in areas of both sports medicine and geriatric care. Although patient-goals vary greatly for these two demographics one thing remains consistent, the desire to recover quickly. Whether a patient is planning to have a procedure, like ACL or knee replacement, or suffer from chronic knee pain and stiffness, they all share common fears and dreams.
As physical therapists, the creators of GoKnee saw a need that had not been met in their industry. Knee recovery was slow and painful. The quality of guidance and equipment a physical therapist provided during a therapy session were not accessible for the patient to continue at home. Other home exercise devices only focused on one component of recovery.
After one patient realized he was not progressing as he expected, despite the frustration, sacrifice and effort he had put into his knee replacement recovery, he was devastated to learn he would likely need a second procedure. He begged for an alternative! From that request the creative wheels began to turn and GoKnee was born.
See our RESULTS
My surgeon was so pleased with my results from GoKnee, he gave written permission for me to return to work months earlier than expected.
I was so worried about my knee pain, until I started using GoKnee and was in full control – then my anxiety ended and my recovery truly began!
GoKnee is revolutionizing knee recovery.
Shehla and her team are so encouraging and supportive. It is truly like having a physical therapist in your home. Excellent customer service.
Purchased GoKnee for my mother-in-law, and she recovered quicker and gained full range of motion in a fraction of the time her surgeon was expecting!
GoKnee is like having a physical therapist at home guiding you through recovery.
After surgery I faced a mental struggle with recovery, until GoKnee gave me hope because I saw improvement after my first use.
I used GoKnee before my surgery to prepare my muscles and ligaments for the new joint, and went from feeling helpless to proactive in my recovery.
My therapist told me I was at the 12-week mark with my progress and it had only been 4 weeks.
My lack of transportation meant GoKnee was a good fit for me because it helped me recover from my own home after my knee replacement surgery.
GoKnee accelerated the recovery of my range of motion. By using the device, I had control of the pain associated with stretching my knee.
After using GoKnee, I was able to pedal a bike. That is something I haven’t been able to do in 20 years.
Six months of PT, and I still struggled to meet flexion goals. Then my surgeon recommended GoKnee, and I finally made real progress, pain-free!
I was at 0 to 127 degrees of range of motion by Week 2. I wish I could convey to people how excited I am about GoKnee.
GoKnee gives you complete control.
At my four-week postoperative follow up, my knee bend was 123 with no help and I could fully straighten it.
With GoKnee, I had control of the pain associated with stretching my knee. Because I knew I had control, I pushed harder and recovered faster.
I started using GoKnee a few weeks before surgery, and amazed my physical therapists when I achieved 120 degrees when I bend my knees.
My insurance ran out before I met my PT goals for my new knee. GoKnee was my last investment – I wish it had been my first investment!
GoKnee was so easy to use, it felt like I completed an entire physical therapy session in less than ten minutes.
When I realized I was getting one-on-one instructions from a physical therapist on the exercise videos, I knew GoKnee was a quality product.
My surgeon asked if I wanted to have my second knee replacement 3 weeks sooner than planned because of how fast GoKnee recovered my first knee.
I loved working with GoKnee. I was in control, and I really looked forward to using it every day.
The device works great, but the real magic happens when you turn on the exercise videos.
GoKnee made my recovery faster and less painful. I was amazed at how fast I got off the walker.
