What is CPM is used for?
CPM, or Continuous Passive Motion, is a postoperative procedure designed to aid in recovery after joint surgery. 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.
Passive range of motion means that the joint is moved without the patient’s muscles being used. 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.
