Keeping the patient in position can be a struggle during physical therapy sessions. The VersaSlider, designed by a PT, aims to help control hip rotation in order to help the patient decrease muscle substitution and achieve full knee extension.
The slight heel elevation provided by the VersaSlider gives clearance under the knee so that ice can be applied or a brace can be secured without the assistance of the patient or another therapist, notes a media release from Madison, Miss-based VersaSlider.
In addition, the VersaSlider can serve as a TKE roll, therefore reducing the need for extra bolster rolls in the clinic. Its ultra-slick base slides easily on most surfaces and can substitute as a powder board, enabling the patient to perform multiple exercises without having to maintain proper hip position or requiring the need for additional assistance by a physical therapist.
