The machine features a leg cradle, where you will place your leg. They also have hand controls so you can adjust the settings on the machine, and so that you can start the session. The straps are typically Velcro, which are easy to put on and take off. You will also be able to program the machine to determine the range of motion. It’s important to make sure that you follow the therapist’s instructions when using the machine, so you do not overdo it on your knee during the first few days after surgery. While the CPM machine is typically for knees, there are also models that work for the elbow and the shoulders. They work in much the same fashion.
How cpm machines work
The patient will place his or her leg into the machine, which will then slowly and carefully move the knee. Make sure that the knee joint is right above the pivot, and then strap it into the machine. Once you start the machine, it will slowly move up and down in order to provide you even and constant movement. When you finish the session, all you need to do is to press stop and then wait for the machine to return to the starting position. Un-strap the leg and lift it out of the machine.
About cpm machines
A CPM machine, or a continuous passive motion machine, is a type of therapeutic machine that has a very specific use – as therapy for knee joint recovery. The device is useful after going through orthopedic surgery, as it can help to reduce swelling and inflammation, as well as the stiffness that many patients suffer from after the procedure. It will gently move and flex the knee joint so that it can maintain movement. Those who undergo therapy with the machine typically have a greater range of motion, and lower pain than those who do not go through it.
