Continuous Passive Motion Therapy or CPM is commonly
used by orthopaedic surgeons to aid in patient recovery
following injury or surgery to the joint. After a surgery,
many patients will experience pain which can lead to
a tendency to not move the joint adequately enough to
regain proper range of motion. The tissue around the
joint will become stiff due to this lack of motion and
scarring will begin to develop.
When a Continous Passive Motion machine is applied after
surgery, the joint can be moved through a range of motion
for an extended period of time. This use can significantly
reduce the recovery time by increasing the range of motion,
promote healing of the joint surfaces and soft tissues,
reduce the development of adhesions and scar tissue and
decrease stiffness of the joint.
Model 1850 CPM has a lightweight, compact
design, an integrated bed mount system and an easily
converted foot cradle for pediatric use.
