The electromyographic biofeedback has been associated to the classical protocol of recovery (consisting of physiotherapy and physical therapy) on an experimental lotof 60 patients. The efficiency of this method that is relatively new in our country has been pointed out by comparing the development of the patients part of the experimental group with the development of the witness lot (66 patients) which has been treated only by means of a kinetic program and physiotherapy procedures.
The comparison criteria were joint mobility (flexion and knee extension), muscular force (of the quadriceps femoris) and the parameter of the KOOS scale measured each month at all 126 patients monitored during the 6 months.
The statiscal analysis of the results shows that by combining the electromyographic biofeedback with the classical recovery method improves significantly most of the parameters monitored during posttraumatic rehabilitation (joint mobility, muscle force, recovery period).
Key words:

electromyographic biofeedback, rehabilitation, posttraumatic knee.
