Title: Kinex Patient Highlight
Text: "This is Lisa. She's got a new knee. How did her KinexCONNECT rehab go?"
Lisa: "I got the machine. I got on it usually got on it two or three times a day for an hour to two hours. Loved using the iPad (tablet) to have total control of the movement. I would start off low and increase it as much as I could and got to the point where I got it to bend 120 degrees, which prior to surgery would not go 90 degrees. So, it was a big help in actually making me sit down and do the bending without too much pain. And I enjoyed being able to see the progress and work up to getting it bent to 120 degrees."

"I am pleased to write this letter on behalf of TJ Kleen and the Kinex Connect knee CPM. I am an orthopedic surgeon practicing in the BPCI Model 2 program. Using this tool has saved money in the bundle and continued to have excellent results.
As patients move to the home faster these days the KinexCONNECT allows my patients to do their rehabilitation in the home setting and has resulted in patients being more actively engaged in the rehabilitation process. The video-based therapy exercises and daily medical question monitoring have been very valuable tools in avoiding readmissions. It has proven to be a cost-effective alternative and I have been able to reduce costs on outpatient physical therapy and home health while experiencing no decline in the quality of outcomes. Patients have been very happy and have reported having a great experience. I would encourage anyone to use the KinexCONNECT knee CPM.
My patients have loved working with TJ and he has been great with my staff. He keeps track of details and communicates with my nurses. I recommend TJ highly. He is a go-getter."

I wanted to let you know how much Kinex has gone above and beyond regarding [our patient's] Kinex chair. Because Kinex’s nearest rep is at least 3 hours away and is not familiar with our setup, this Wed 6/26, Kinex is flying one of our local reps up to Indianapolis to personally set up her chair which is being shipped to the [patient's] house this week. This was worked out with our local people Amy and Heather, along with and Mike Buckholdt the Kinex CEO.
Mike, Amy, and Heather - thank you so very very much for going way above and beyond for getting [our patient] the best care possible. We really appreciate all you do in support of us and our shoulder patients. You guys are the best!"

"My surgeon does not typically order CPM following a TKR, however, my wife thought it would be a good idea to request one. She recalled that CPM was very helpful in her TKR recovery two years ago.
I'm glad that we chose to request a CPM device. We were provided with a KinexCONNECT knee CPM and have been thrilled with its performance. I have found that using my CONNECT at bedtime helps me to fall asleep and results in me feeling considerably less stiff in the mornings. At just under four weeks post-surgery, I have managed a flexion of 115 degrees. I am now able to walk with a cane only and shower independently. And, I believe that by using the CONNECT device, I have been able to reduce my dependency on pain medication.
In addition to my CPM work, I receive Physical Therapy sessions twice a week. I mentioned my success with the CPM to my PT and he was quick to share his appreciation. He told me that my use of the CPM allowed him to focus more on strengthening rather than on my range of motion."
