- Hip Surgery
Hip Exercise: Place the EZMEND in front of you, perpendicular to your leg. Wrap the soft strap around your foot and place the heel of your foot in the cup. Gently slide your foot back and forth. This motion exercises the range in motion of your hip joint and stretches the muscles in your leg. This aids the rehabilitation of the hip joint.
Knee Exercise: Place the EZMEND parallel along your leg. Wrap the soft strap around your foot and place the heel of your foot in the cup. Gently bend and straighten your knee. This motion stretches the muscles in your leg without putting weight on the injured knee which aids the recovery of the knee, hip and ankle joints.
Performing either one of the exercises, or both, helps to speed up recovery from injury or surgery through low impact exercises of the injured joint and surrounding muscles. They can also help increase overall movement and range of motion (ROM) in the joints for those seeking to combat atrophy. The EZMEND is easy to use and does not require you to put weight on your injury while keeping your joints perfectly aligned for optimal results. The two EZMEND exercises are designed to accelerate healing by:
- Increasing range of motion (ROM) in the knee, hip and ankle joints
- Increasing mobility and muscle tone
- Improving circulation
- Diminishing postoperative pain
- Preventing muscle weakness (atrophy)
- Reducing swelling
- Minimizing stiffness
- Minimizing scar tissue developing at joints
- Minimizing heel chafing

RE: Slider Board Technology
I was pleased to see the new Slider Board Technology. As you know, I used the Slider Boards quite extensively post-op for patients undergoing hip and knee replacements. This technology was extremely helpful in the post operative period, as it allowed the patients to increase their range of motion and also strengthen muscles around the hip and knee. I also had the impression that encouraging the use of the Slider Board, seemed to diminish post-operative pain and swelling. From a practical standpoint it was very helpful to have these patients go home with the Slider Board. It allowed them to work at their own pace and was a worthwhile supplement to their physiotherapy.
