"mindset" behind the "XCLevation" design

"XCLevation" is pronounced "excel-evation".

When XCLevation was first created, it was focused on ACL injuries. If you're familiar with ACL anatomy, the "X" represents the reconstructed ACL crossing the PCL. The "three horizontal bars" represents the idea of raising the bar in setting new goals to achieve milestones in your recovery, and taking the next step towards achieving them.  The letter "X" in the "XCL" acronym represents a variable, as XCL includes ACL, MCL, PCL, LCL knee injuries.
