Continuous Passive Motion
Why its prescribed – The continuous passive motion (CPM) machine is designed to help recover the range of motion in your joint, in a safe, in home setting. During your use, the motion will increase blood flow and break up scar tissue, which are both very beneficial for your recovery. The knee and ankle CPM’s can be used whether sitting or lying down, but as physician prescribed. They can be used on the couch, floor, or a bed, as long as it is a relatively flat and firm surface. The shoulder CPM is an upright chair that will be individually sized for you.
How it works – It is designed to work the joint with a continuous motion to help extend and flex throughout your rehabilitation.
