What's So Important About Full Knee Extension?

Research shows that a lack of terminal knee extension (end range - not just 0 degrees or straight, but hyperextension) leads to increased risk of arthritis. Limited knee extension is a common impairment in people who have poor outcomes after knee surgery – whether it be a TKA, ACL, partial menisectomy, etc. For athletes, achieving full knee extension is an important factor (of many) in predicting a successful return to sport.

What People Say


"One of the things that correlates to poor long term outcomes after knee surgery has always been a loss of knee extension, making full knee extension range of motion a priority. Patients often struggle to work on this independently at home, or have been forced to purchase a complicated and expensive device. The Knee Terminator is a very simple device that allows patients to easily perform low load long duration stretching on their own. It’s a great tool for clinicians to use in the clinic and to recommend people to purchase on their own for home use due to how affordable it is."
