Knee Glide™ Becomes Latest Exclusive OPTP Product


OPTP has partnered with physical therapists Robert Schrupp and Bradley Heineck to bring the new Knee Glide™ physical therapy exercise tool to market.
 
The Knee Glide, an easy-to-use rehabilitation tool, provides safe exercise for both the lower and upper extremities at home or in the clinic.
 
Patients simply place their foot or hand on the plate for easy movement back and forth along the track. The device slides smoothly and securely, allowing for low-impact exercise.
 
Minimal strength is required to move the Knee Glide, making it ideal for anyone recovering from knee replacement or surgeries (ACL, PCL), hip replacement or fracture, shoulder replacement or surgeries (rotator cuff, etc.) or stroke. It is also safe for those with arthritis or risk of falling, since exercises can be performed in a seated or supine position.
 
Specific benefits of use include: 

  • Increased range of motion
  • Improved joint strength
  • Promotion of synovial fluid
  • Increased blood flow
The Knee Glide also features a convenient carrying handle and weighs just three pounds, making it easy to transport. The carrying handle can be used to attach the device to the wall for added stability during shoulder exercises. Each purchase includes an insert with exercise instructions.
