The main advantages of CPM methodology

The main advantages in the application of CPM methodology (Continuous Passive Motion) during the post-operative period
The application of CPM methodology (Continuous Passive Motion) in the first weeks after a intervention of orthopedic surgery, has to be considered important in order to assure to the patient a correct recovery of the joint mobility.

Passive mobilization has, between its first purposes, the aim to prevent the stiffness in order to grant an efficient return to the correct joint functionality.
If we are in front of an intervention of orthopedic surgery, this kind of therapy avoid the formation of scars, which can provide narrow-movementness.

This kind of therapy represent a valid alternative to manual mobilisation; the correspondence between articulations and mechnical joints of CPM devices, permit to produce to the patient a fluid, precise and direct movement, respecting the physiological degrees which have to be recovered (picture 1).

The application of this kind of physical therapy operate through a "wake-up" action to the joint; the CPM devices which are present on the market, have features able to increase progressively the physiological degrees which have to be recovered.

In addition, the CPM methodology permit to obtain anti-infiammatory effects, reducing the localized swelling.
The therapy through CPM mobilizers is usually introduced in rehabilitation protocols of knee, hip and ankle.
Even if some people believe that passive rehabilitation is not necessary to a correct recovery of the joint's mobility, passive mobilization is introduced in rehabilitative protocols as a compulsory step, very important to follow.
Since years, are born professional roles who rent these CPM devices at home, for patient who exit from hospital; the patient, in this way, can have his therapy without move to a physiotherapy center. It's always important to follow what is suggested by the physiotherapist or by the surgeon.
