CPM machine (Continuous Passive Motion Machine) is a motorized physical therapy equipment used to recover a joint after extensive surgery. A CPM machine brings down blood and fluid accumulation in and around the joints that may occur after surgery or due to trauma. It also maintains normal motion of the knee after a knee replacement surgery. These devices provide an effective post-operative range of motion for the knees, ankles, hip joints, wrists, or hands with minimal effort. We carry a range of high-quality CPM machines from top manufacturers like Kinetic USA, Chattanooga Group, Bodymed, and Patterson Medical.
In the post-operative stiffness stages, the machine pumps the accumulated blood and edema fluid away from the periarticular tissues and the affected joint. This prevents subsequent joint stiffness in the first few hours or days of the surgery, bringing down risks of joint fibrosis and setting in contracture. The joint motion is important to ensure the health of the articular cartilage and is considered timely care of the joint to ensure long-term mobility.
Some other benefits are:
This physiotherapy equipment works the joint through a range of motion (ROM) without any effort from the user. The affected joint, like the knee, elbow, wrist, ankle, hand and wrist, is placed in a mechanical split and moved constantly without normal muscle function. Understanding how long to use a Continuous Passive Motion Machine will depend on the condition of the affected joint and when the patient is able to perform the movement without assistance. Usually, the surgeon puts the patient on the machine after the surgery and makes him continue until 3-4 weeks following surgery.
A CPM machine may help a person recover from surgery or injury in the following ways:
Most continuous passive machine therapy starts in the hospital and continues at home. Physiotherapists may work differently depending on their patients’ conditions. Some may recommend starting at a pre-defined flexion (usually between 0-60 degrees) and increasing flexion by 5-10 degrees each day until it reaches 110. Another may use 0 to 40 degrees to start with. The general recommendation is to use the machine thrice daily, with each session lasting two hours for a total of six hours each day.
