|Official Title:||Dynamic Splinting After Total Knee Arthroplasty: a Randomized, Controlled Trial|
|Study Start Date :||January 2009|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date :||May 2015|
No Intervention: 1
Patient will receive post-surgical standard of care treatment with standard Physical therapy and NSAIDs.
Patients will be treated with the Standard of Care physical therapy and NSAIDs as well as a Knee Extension Dynasplint that includes tension chambers.
Device: Knee Extension Dynasplint
Dynamic Splinting utilizes the protocols of Low-Load, Prolonged-Duration Stretch (LLPS) with calibrated, adjustable tension to increase the Total End Range Time (TERT) to reduce contracture. The Knee Extension Dynasplint for the Experimental group will have tension chambers delivering therapeutic treatment from the device.
- Change in Maximal Acitive Range of Mothion in knee extension [ Time Frame: 9 weeks ]
