Helping Patients Return To A Normal Life Faster
Each year, over 1,000,000 patients in the US have total knee replacements, and many others have meniscus repair, ACL reconstruction or other range-of-motion surgeries.
This number is increasing by 30 percent over the next decade.
Advances in both the design of artificial joints and surgical techniques for implantation have improved patient outcomes and extended life expectancy of the implants. With these advances have come increased pressures to shorten hospital lengths of stay and lower overall case costs.
But one of the key outcome measures – quality of life – is tied in large part to successful post-acute rehabilitation.
The GAP-FLEX® System provides a comfortable and less painful method to improve patient recovery using a brilliantly simple platform: gravity.
Patients simply drape their knee over the GAP-FLEX® for 6 minutes, walk for 2 minutes and use the GAP-FLEX® Extension Block for 10 minutes and repeat the therapy 6 times a day. Patients are consistently more compliant with the therapy, and report faster recovery. The GAP-FLEX® System has been used successfully on over 2,000 patients, with extremely positive outcomes.

Improved clinical outcomes; improved patient compliance; and improved economic outcomes. For early adopters, the GAP-FLEX® System has replaced the CPM as the standard of care for total knee replacement therapy.
“I achieved a degree of flexion in a week that took almost two months without the device. The pain and stiffness is probably only a third of what I had to deal with on the first go round.” – Female age 72
