" After seeing the slider in action and the interactive game that patients /customers can engage with whilst performing their rehab,
I would recommend it.
It has the potential to facilitate compliance with exercise as well as being a good distraction from any pain they are experiencing at the time."
Surgeons everywhere should shout a loud hurrah at such a device which enables patients to help themselves and so enhance their prospects of recovery.
I have been using the Slider for about 4 weeks, and have realised a significant improvement in my knee muscles. My surgery for a total replacement is next week and I feel confident that i will have a much speedier recovery.
I ‘m so pleased that I decided to take on The Slider System of pre-op exercise and would like to thank Dr Sampath from the bottom of my heart, for allowing me to continue with it past my designated time requirement.
From the very start I have found it enormously helpful in making me exercise my arthritic knees (both are due for replacement). I found the six exercises easy and do-able, and relatively quick. Since starting, my knees have been less stiff and painful, and my thigh muscles more toned. Post op this will put me in a much better position to be mobile again.
I would recommend The Slider System to anyone with arthritic knees without reservation. Thank you once again Dr Sampath and congratulations for developing this invaluable tool.
I would like to thank you most sincerely for the use of the Slider before I had my full knee operation, and also for allowing me to continue with the exercises after the operation.
My physiotherapist is pleased with my progress, and stated that at this stage of my recovery I am in a much better position than many other people are, which I am confident is down to persevering with the Slider exercises."
Many thanks for your help,"
Before my knee surgery I had the opportunity to take part in a 2 week trial with the slider.Not only did the slider build my muscles around my knee but also gave me a little bit more flexibility. I had full knee replacement 9 days ago,and now realise the benefit of having used the slider prior to my operation. The physitherapists remarked how well I was moving my knee. Thank you to Shameem for allowing me to keep the slider as I am benefiting post operationally.
Great piece of equipment. My legs feel stronger and balance has improved after 4 weeks.
I was asked to test out the Slider by the RJAH as I was due a total knee replacement. I found it very easy to use and quickly saw the benefits of regular use. I have strengthened the muscles which support my knee and this has helped in my day to day life. It is an amazing piece of kit and I would strongly recommend that anyone who has problems with their knees should seek to try it. The exercises are relatively easy, but can have a dramatic effect... The games on the tablet are fun and make the time go very quickly. I think all physio depts should look at stocking this device for relevant patients. I am truly grateful for having had it on loan and for the difference it has made. My surgery has been delayed due to a cancer diagnosis, but because I have done the exercises my knee is in a better place and I am able to wait that little bit longer for my surgery. Many thanks for everything.
My dad was given the Slider to trial whilst awaiting a knee replacement at the RJAH NHS hospital. He is a bit of a technophobe (hence me writing the review for him). So I was amazed that he accepted the tablet and slider to trial. It seems a fantastic bit of kit and seems to be making a real difference for his knee, the exercises and games are both engaging and challenging for him. …As he is due his operation very soon, he is enthusiastic about his rehabilitation and believes the slider will help a lot with it.
He is extremely thankful and grateful for the use of the slider and is looking forward to being able to compare the pre-and-post-operation data to measure how much it has helped along the way.
