Physical therapy aid in your home This was a real find for me! After searching all over the internet and only finding a cumbersome wooden one for $270, I was thrilled to find this on Amazon! Heel slides are one of the most important exercises after total knee replacement to regain range of motion, and also one of the hardest exercises to do at home due to uneven surfaces like couch cushions. This piece of equipment makes it so easy to do in your home program and the price is very reasonable considering the importance of this exercise and the scarcity of equipment out there to enable you to do it easily from your home.

Very easy to use. This has been helpful reducing the stress and helping rehab my patients when it comes to shoulder, knee, wrist, and ankle rehab with active ranges of motion. I add ankle weights to help patient progress with light resistance especially for the shoulder and knee issues. A great addition anyone needing to use it at home or for a clinical area. Takes minimal space and using small low tech items to show patients how to keep the body moving shows them they don’t need to go overboard in rehabbing themselves and spending money on treatments once they know how to take control of their own conditions.

Helps tremendously!!! Had total knee replacement eight days ago. I have been using this since getting home from hospital. My rom today was 100. I am very pleased. I had the other knee done two years ago and did not get this rom until later on. I would greatly recommend this piece of equipment. I used the cookie sheet with the last knee. This is much easier and I believe much more effective!
