Amsterdam, September 2002

We work with the Functional Squat System (FSS) since two years in a clinical setting. The patients that are training on the FSS differ widely, for example:
ACL ruptures, conservatively treated
ACL reconstructions
Acetabulum fractures
Total knees
Tibia fractures

Case study:
Patient of 45 years old with an acetabulum fracture, conservatively treated with 6 weeks of bed rest (7 kg traction). After the bed rest period he is not allowed to bear full weight for at least 6 weeks. In that period it is very useful to train on the FSS, because you can train quadriceps and hamstrings in a closed chain, which is close to walking.
My experience is that the FSS is useful in early rehabilitation of trauma patients, especially for patients who are not allowed to full weight bearing. Patients like to train on the FSS, because there are a variety of different programs to do.
