Buckland Day Hospital Total Knee Replacement Class


  • Post operative knee replacements who have been discharged out of hospital

  • No infections present within knee

  • Medically stable
  • Able to tolerate an exercise class

The class is run on Mondays between 11.00 – 11.45.

The class is a circuit based group and the individuals are expected to work at their own level at each station. The individual will have the range of movement and strength in their knee monitored at each class and will be discharged when they have achieved full strength and a functional range of movement (aiming for 90° flexion) or have reached a plateau. The individual will be referred back to the Consultant where problems arise.  

One to one sessions will also be offered when the person can not attend the class due to the time, if they can not tolerate a class type activity or are post MUA and require CPM and more intense therapy.
