The Knee Terminator
If you are recovering from knee replacement surgery, terminal knee extension is important. Many patients are focused on their knee flexion (bending) and with good reason, you need it for function in all upright and weight bearing positions.
However, research shows that a good predictor of successful rehab is restoration of end range knee extension. That’s where The Knee Terminator comes in. It’s easy to set up, affordable, and accelerates rehab in a comfortable way.
Many patients are placed into the prone knee hang, or hanging a weight from the end of their foot while they lie on their stomach. This is a much longer lever and tends to get uncomfortable fast. Discomfort means that the knee will not be as relaxed as possible leading to discomfort and a stretch that is not optimal. The Knee Terminator hangs directly under the patient’s knee and uses two comfortable straps and a base with a diameter that fits all standard weight plates and ankle weights.
