Collection: Continuous Passive Motion for Rent CPM

Continuous passive motion for rent CPM devices are used during the first phase of rehabilitation following a soft tissue surgical procedure or trauma. The goals of phase 1 rehabilitation are: control post-operative pain, reduce inflammation, provide passive motion in a specific plane of movement, and protect the healing repair or tissue. Continuous passive motion for rent CPM is carried out by a CPM device, which constantly moves the joint through a controlled range of motion the exact range is dependent upon the joint, but in most cases the range of motion is increased over time.

Continuous passive motion for rent CPM is 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. One mechanism is the movement of synovial fluid to allow for better diffusion of nutrients into damaged cartilage and diffusion of other materials out; such as blood and metabolic waste products. Another mechanism is the prevention of fibrous scar tissue formation in the joint, which tends to decrease the range of motion for a joint.

The Chattanooga Optiflex 3 Continuous passive motion for rent CPM Machine is designed to provide anatomical motion for all types of CPM Knee Patients: Pediatric, Athletic and Bariatric.

Continuous passive motion for rent CPM Knee replacement, also known as knee Arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability, most commonly offered when joint pain is not diminished by conservative sources and also for other knee diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. In patients with severe deformity from advanced rheumatoid arthritis trauma, or long-standing osteoarthritis, the surgery may be more complicated and carry higher risk. Osteoarthritis does not typically cause knee pain, deformity, or inflammation and is not a reason to perform knee replacement.

Other major causes of debilitating pain include meniscus tears, cartilage defects, and ligament tears. Debilitating pain from osteoarthritis is much more common in the elderly.

Knee replacement surgery can be performed as a partial or a total knee replacement. In general, the surgery consists of replacing the diseased or damaged joint surfaces of the knee with metal and plastic components shaped to allow continued motion of the knee.

The operation typically involves substantial postoperative pain and includes vigorous physical rehabilitation. The recovery period may be 12 weeks or longer and may involve the use of mobility aids (e.g. walking frames, canes, crutches), range of motion knee braces to enable the patient's return to preoperative mobility. It is estimated that approximately 82% of total knee replacements will last 25 years.

or people who have had total knee replacement without complications, continuous passive motion has been shown to provide clinically relevant benefits. Continuous passive motion for rent CPM does improve long-term function, long-term knee flexion, knee extension in the short or long term. In unusual cases where the person has problems which prevent standard mobilization treatment, then Continuous passive motion for rent CPM may be useful.

There are limited occupational therapies that are fully supported across a spectrum of patients. The fundamental movements provided by the , potentially allows for a remedial and fast progressing therapy. This is according to the University of California. This is an untapped potential for stroke patients that needs to be further explored, according to the same source. are a rare form of therapy that directly correlates the amount of use to the amount of progress. It is easy to neglect at-home therapeutic exercises for various reasons, but Continuous passive motion for rent CPM can be used while watching television or doing anything stationary. This ability to multi-task therapy with recreational activities hold higher promise for patients completing the therapy at home. Completing the therapy at home is just as important as prescribing it. That is why some studies suggest physical and occupational therapy yield better results with the use of units. 

Most Surgeon Doctors recommend the following Knee CPM Devices.
