Knee Pain - Global Burden
SMC™ in Post Surgical Care
What is SMC™
SMC™ or Suprakinetics™ is a revolutionary new technology born out of synergy of high end robotics and advanced software solutions.
A new paradigm in protocol design and management, allowing for advanced prevention, rehabilitation and assessment quality.
SMC™ significantly enhances the effectiveness of all recognized treatments - from surgical to non-surgical. It is a complete clinical package, very important for any of the present options and the future of treating joints pathology.
What is Leguar™
World’s first SMC™ device and an innovation in the field of high-end medical robotics intended for professionals involved with knee injuries and clinical conditions: orthopaedic surgeons and physical therapists, as well as sport professionals: athletes, coaches and scientists.
It is the first efficient way for preventing injuries, decreasing the symptoms of the knee OA and improving the result of rehabilitation. Much needed tool in medical and sports environment. It supports guided and individual treatments and efficient injury prevention in professional sport and every day life.
Leguar™ offers cutting edge performance enhancement not obtainable through conventional training or rehabilitation methods.
LEGUAR™ is designed exclusively for knee treatment. No compromise is made on account of versatility, as with all other [“multi-joint”] devices. Primary function and design focus is treatment of degenerative and traumatic knee conditions, as well as pre- and post-surgical treatment.
Two precision servo motors, each dedicated to one knee, provide the basis for extremely efficient treatment. Combined with improved exercise structure and setup, this design enables maximum performance in minimum time.
Every part of LEGUAR™ is designed to maximize exercise effect and data assessment precision as well as comfort.
DLR Leg Adapter
Dynamic Linear Response, an innovation in itself, this solution is unique to LEGUAR™. It automatically and continuously accommodates to leg movement, thus eliminating discomfort and unwanted radial forces on the knee structure. Data assessment precision is also positively affected by this innovation. DLR™, as a primary point of body-to-machine contact greatly contributes to overall user experience and unmatched level of performance.
High-end components are paired with the proprietary SMC™ drive and its algorithms. This combination gives superb performance that surpasses everything known or used so far. Leguar™ closely resembles finer human motorics and it is paramount for efficiency and active safety.
Superior looks, firmly rooted in its primary purpose, make LEGUAR™ attractive and inviting for being used extensively. Serious attention to detail further differentiates this highly efficient and sophisticated tool from the rest of the field.
LEGUAR™ provides complete know-how solutions for the user: clinical protocols exclusive to Suprakinetic™ technology, created by world’s leading experts, are embedded in the device. It enables users to achieve maximum gain in the shortest possible time. Extensive list of SMC™ specific protocols covers broad spectrum of indicated knee conditions, allowing practitioners to rapidly integrate LEGUAR™ in their daily practice.
LEGUAR™ utilizes an intuitive human-machine interface that controls sophisticated robotic solutions in an innovative way. Twin touch displays are designed for controled, guided, supervised or operator free use. Precise data recording with high frequency sample rate provides advanced analytic possibilities for professionals as well as patient and protocol management tools. LEGUAR™ can also be controlled remotely, via mobile device.
Huge number of degenerative and traumatic knee conditions created a serious need for a specific tool that can be efficiently used for treatment, prevention and additional diagnostics. Also, pre- and post-operative care has great influence on the outcome of surgical treatments. The loss of muscle strength and functional capacity due to trauma or some degenerative process has always represented a major problem for successful recovery. The primary objective, and challenge, is building muscle strength without putting unwanted strain to an injured joint.
Suprakinetic™ technology and LEGUAR™ significantly enhance all other types treatments and give that much needed advantage to doctors, patients and business owners. Embedded clinical protocols for major knee conditions are a true game changer - an all important know-how that totally redefines utility boundaries.
Considering huge resources invested in professional athletes worldwide (especially team sports like football), injury prevention and top performance become the primary concern of all involved - from team managers to insurance companies. SMC™ and LEGUAR™ are much needed professional tools that can be easily integrated in everyday training regime and greatly reduce injury incidence.
Utilization of this new technology and the knowledge behind it fulfill yet another crucial need in highly competitive sport environment - pushing the boundaries of performance even further, which is the very essence of sport. Suprakinetic™ technology and LEGUAR™ were conceived and created specifically to fulfill those needs.
Founder & CEO, Rimac Automobili
The Leguar team has managed to combine important key aspects - functionality, user experience, technology and design. What many miss is that the best device is useless without an easy and fun to use user experience. The Leguar is a pleasure to look at, touch, feel and use - due to its top-notch quality, great user interface and advanced functions.
Prof. MD Phd, Knee surgeon
There are many challenges today in approaching a patient with a knee condition - the decision whether to perform the surgery or not, what is the right timing for surgery, which technique to use, etc. - but probably the greatest challenge of all would be how to recover the patient as soon as possible and bring the patient to the same level of activity as before aquiring this condition. Thus, rehabilitation and the surgery are equally important.
We have developed an advanced technology which raised the process of dealing with knee conditions to a whole new level. The Suprakinetic™ technology has a capacity to prevent injuries, decrease symptoms of painful conditions and improve the time of returning to the same level of activity.
I am extremely happy with the process of rehabilitation in my patients utilising Leguar™ after knee surgery.

Reaching the top is a great challenge, especially considering many possible injuries. You have to keep searching for excellence in sport and the advantage of technological development is very important.
From today’s point of view, Suprakinetic™ technology is the first answer to specific challenges we are facing.
Recovering from a knee condition or surgery is a demanding process and Leguar™ is a very efficient tool for professional athletes, doctors and regular patients. It works really smooth, performs with excellent precision and has a vital place in both athletic and medical environment. Great software and HMI [human-machine interface] make it fun and easy to use.
