Continuow Passive Motion (CPM) is a postoperative rehabilitation therapy designed to aid in patient recovery after joint surgery, soft tissue surgical procedure or trauma. The treatment method has been practiced for more than 30 years.
After extensive joint surgery patient attempts at joint flexion can cause considerable pain, dissuading the patient from effective joint motion. Failure to achieve proper rehabilitative flexion can lead to stiffening of the tissue around the joint. Eventually, this condition may cause intra-articular adhesion (formation of scar tissue) and extra-articular contractures (shortening of a muscle or tendon), resulting in a limited range of motion for the joint.
Passive range of motion moves the joint gradually and slowly without the use of the patient's muscles. The device is applied post-operatively and can be use in both inpatient and outpatient therapy regimens. The physician will prescribe usage, amount of motion and the rate of motion increase.Read More Visit our Products
