Description

Continuous Passive Motion Machines

Continuous Passive Motion Machines (CPM) are used following various types of reconstructive joint surgery such as knee replacement and ACL reconstruction. Its mechanisms of action for aiding joint recovery are dependent upon what surgery is performed.

After extensive joint surgery, if a patient fails to move their joint tissue around, the joint will become stiff and scar tissue will form, resulting in a joint with limited range of motion, which often takes months of physical therapy to recover.

DynquestMedical.com CPM machines are designed to provide reliable, safe, continuous passive motion therapy to a wide range of patients, including children and bariatric patients.

Continuous passive motion devices are used after surgery, both in the hospital and in the home.  The motorized CPM device gradually moves the affected joint through a prescribed arc of motion for an extended period of time.
