Continuous Passive Motion (CPM)

IMG_6736

At Sports Centre Physiotherapy we now offer a CPM Knee Unit for rent. The CPM unit can be rented out on a monthly basis and will be set up specifically for you by our qualified staff.

What the CPM does:

The motorized CPM device gradually moves the affected joint through a prescribed range of motion for an extended period of time. Passive range of motion means that the joint is moved without the muscles being used. Continuous passive motion devices are generally used after surgery, such as Total Knee and Hip Replacements, both in hospital and at home.

Benefits of using a CPM:

• Decreasing soft tissue stiffness
• Increasing range of motion
• Promoting healing of joint surfaces and soft tissue
• Preventing the development of motion-limiting adhesions (scar tissue)
