The IdealKnee™ was developed on the IdealStretch™ frame and originally adapted for use in treating post-operative flexion contractures in ACL and knee replacement surgery by Dr. Donald Shelbourne and the Shelbourne Knee Center, Community Hospital. His 30 years of treating and researching post-operative success has built an outstanding level of respect with his peers, who are subsequently adopting the Ideal Knee and incorporating it into patient treatment protocols.
Dr. Shelbourne imparts the same observations in his frequent lectures and with the patients he treats.
“Many knee surgeries can be avoided and many physical issues can be improved simply by putting in the hard work to increase range of motion in the knee.”
“You can’t fully recover from any knee surgery and expect long-term success without regaining full range of motion.”
