Lead the industry for exceptional knee recovery

Most Facilities Are Unknowingly Missing the Mark When It Comes to Post-Operative Knee Care

We get it – you’re focused on exceptional knee surgery procedures, entrusting the recovery process to an aftercare team. The problem is that the moments directly after surgery can make or break your patients’ chances at reclaiming full function – and most operation teams aren’t providing the immediate post-operative care they need.

Neglecting this vital period can lead to long-term complications for your patients, such as persistent limping, increased risk of reinjury, reduced mobility,  and an inability to regain full knee strength. These issues can tarnish your surgical team’s reputation, as patients often link post-operative challenges directly to the surgery.

We believe your patients – and your facility – deserve to be better equipped.

After all, when your patients are unhappy with their recovery, that becomes your reputation.

Revolutionize Recovery

Introducing RIET Protocol and the LRU Pillow

Here’s the key to regaining full knee function: post-operative care that focuses on edema prevention immediately. Less swelling allows your patients to maximize function by promptly and aggressively working on knee flexion and extension range of motion earlier (within 1-2 weeks of operation).

After extensive research, testing, and a combined 30+ years of experience as an Orthopedic Surgeon and Knee Therapist, we discovered a game-changing aftercare process your facility can implement to improve patient outcomes and enhance your reputation for knee surgery excellence. 

It involves two components: the RIET Protocol paired with the LRU Pillow.  


the process

RIET Protocol

The foundation for a successful knee recovery is swelling control and early knee range of motion. RIET (Rest, Ice, Elevate, Therapy) Protocol prioritizes preventing inflammation before it is too late so your patients can maximize their knee function post-surgery.

the tool

LRU Pillow

While CPM, pillows, and foam blocks can undoubtedly elevate your patient’s knee, they do not effectively hold the knee in terminal extension. The scientifically designed and proven LRU Pillow allows post-operative patients to comfortably elevate their knee while holding it in terminal extension, mitigating swelling and maximizing the opportunity for early knee motion.

Implementing the RIET Protocol using the LRU Pillow at your hospital or outpatient center ensures consistent, industry-leading results for knee surgery patients.

Hear from Dr. Matt, an Orthopedic Surgeon who has successfully implemented the RIET Protocol using the LRU Pillow at his hospital.

Providing The Best Knee Surgery Outcomes Is Reliant On Early Post-Operative Care

Swelling hinders patients from rehabbing their knee range of motion to the optimal degree for comfortably walking, going up stairs, lifting grandchildren, and returning to the life they love! Immediately following surgery, patients must follow the RIET Protocol to prevent edema before it’s too late.
