Frequently Asked Questions
How can I be sure that GoKnee works?
Belmont University conducted a 2-year study on the effects of GoKnee intervention on pain, range of motion, and functional mobility after total knee replacement surgery. They found that using GoKnee as part of your knee replacement recovery, combined with traditional physical therapy services, resulted in faster recovery. GoKnee has been clinically proven to reduce the recovery time by half.

How is GoKnee different from other home exercise programs for knees?
Having access to necessary equipment in your own home is critical to making a fast recovery. While there are various knee devices on the market, GoKnee is the only product currently available that does ALL of the following:
- BOTH flexion (bending) and extension (straightening)
- Passive AND active movement
- Most products currently available only do passive movement.
- It has been proven that active movement is the key to functional recovery.
- Performs a joint mobilization at the knee
- ‘Joint mobilization’ is a skilled manual technique used by physical therapists to increase motion and decrease pain by applying specific pressure or force in various directions to help improve the mobility of a joint.
- The GoKnee device mimics the hands of the physical therapist so you can perform a ‘joint mobilization’ without a therapist present.
- Allows the patient to have full control
- This means that you get to control your own pain—you decide how much to stretch your knee and you get to choose when to stop the exercise.
- Compare this to when a therapist puts their hands on your knee and tells you to relax before they stretch your knee.
- When you are in full control, your brain feels safe because it trusts that you won’t cause harm. This control significantly impacts your knee replacement recovery.
- Strengthening of the knee muscles using ‘Muscle Energy Techniques’
- These are skilled techniques that therapists use which involve gentle muscle contractions with very little actual joint movement so that your pain is minimized while strengthening these much needed muscles.
- All-in-one lightweight and portable device
- Other knee devices on the market only target one motion.
- Instead of having to purchase multiple devices for the best recovery, GoKnee does it ALL.
Why should I consider using GoKnee as part of my knee replacement recovery?
GoKnee is the best home exercise program currently on the market for knee replacement recovery. It was created by physical therapists who specialize in knee care and is clinically proven to speed up recovery after knee replacement.
GoKnee uses the latest in rehabilitation technology and exercise principles, which are also used by elite athletes all over the world. GoKnee is like having your physical therapist in your home every day, guiding your recovery.
In addition to speeding up your recovery, GoKnee can be a cost-effective solution for individuals with high co-payments and limited insurance coverage for physical therapy following knee replacement surgery. It reduces the total number of PT visits needed, saving you money.
For example, if your co-payment for a physical therapy visit is $40 and the surgeon has ordered 3 sessions per week for 4 weeks, the out-of-pocket cost could be $480. Or, maybe your insurance only allows 20 total physical therapy visits per calendar year for any injury, surgery, or recovery. If you use all 12 physical therapy visits your surgeon ordered for your knee replacement recovery, then you only have 8 remaining for the rest of the year. This leaves little room for an accident or another surgery later in the year that requires physical therapy.
When should I start using GoKnee?
Ideally, GoKnee would be used for months leading up to your knee replacement surgery. Research indicates that your post-surgical recovery will be predicted by your pre-surgical functioning.
However, if you are learning about GoKnee after your knee replacement surgery, then no worries! GoKnee has helped individuals make significant gains even years after their knee replacement surgery. The key is to get started, and the sooner the better!
How much does GoKnee cost?
GoKnee can be purchased by individuals for $449.00 USD. The cost includes the device itself and the customized, evidence-based exercise program that goes along with it.
We understand that knee replacement recovery can be expensive with physical therapy co-payments that range from $30-$60 per visit, time off of work, and transportation to and from physical therapy appointments. Cutting recovery time in half from the comfort of your home can significantly help reduce the expenses related to your knee replacement recovery.

How will I know what exercises to do?
After purchasing GoKnee, you will receive an instruction sheet with 3 easy-to-follow steps. These steps will grant you access to our customized exercise videos.
Simply click ‘play’ on the first video and follow the directions. The exercises are guided by a physical therapist who will tell you what to do, how long to do it for, and why you are doing it. The entire exercise session will take you less than 25 minutes to complete.
If for any reason you do not have access to these videos via the internet, we are happy to provide a paper copy or a DVD. Simply send us an email.
Are there any risks to using GoKnee?
Absolutely not! We know that the decision to have knee replacement surgery is not to be taken lightly, so we believe it’s imperative to not do anything that could risk injury to your ‘new’ knee.
GoKnee is only used when you are in a seated position and the device is completely in your control. In fact, the device is designed to break apart if not used properly.
As physical therapists, our primary objective is to ensure your safety while promoting a quick recovery. This is why safety was incorporated into all aspects of GoKnee, from the device design to the exercise program.

Why is GoKnee “revolutionary”?
When it comes to knee replacement surgery, medical advancements are being made and implemented daily. Unfortunately, until GoKnee was invented, there were little to no advancements made surrounding post-op recovery.
A procedure that used to require several days in the hospital can now have patients returning home the same day as surgery. Rehabilitation after knee replacement surgery has also significantly changed, but not for the betterment of the individual.
Individuals used to receive up to 3 hours of therapy, 5-6 days per week in an inpatient rehabilitation facility after knee replacement surgery. Now, due to insurance and reimbursement changes, most individuals are sent home after surgery with referrals to outpatient therapy or home health therapy, both of which are up to 1 hour, 2-3 days per week.
As a result, intense therapy after total knee replacement surgery is no longer an option for many individuals, even though it is necessary for a steady recovery process. This leaves a huge gap in the amount of therapy that patients need to fully and optimally recover from this challenging but much needed procedure.
GoKnee is here to fill that gap! Our device and exercise program take a comprehensive approach to knee recovery, addressing the physical and neurological components required to speed up the recovery process. GoKnee is clinically proven to cut recovery time in half, revolutionizing the way we will treat knee replacement recovery in the future.
At GoKnee, we encourage you to share the information from our website with your orthopedic surgeon and physical therapist so that we can help bring effective recovery methods to all patients.
Who created GoKnee?
GoKnee was created by three physical therapists with over 60 years of combined physical therapy who had a passion for improving the quality of their patients’ lives. What started off as a solution for one patient struggling after knee replacement surgery has now become a solution for millions of Americans.
