CPM (Continuous Passive Motion) Unit

 CPM Unit

Your knee is a joint.  All joints are designed to move.  Your CPM unit is to be used to passively move your knee through a specified range of motion.  This passive motion stimulates the healing process of your knee as well as helps to limit excessive scar tissue adhesions that my hinder your recovery.


If a CPM machine is ordered after surgery, Dr. Lowe will give specific instructions to your caregiver.
