Since the advent of knee replacement doctors understood that the operation eliminated arthritic pain, but did not restore patient to full function.

We present here the truth behind the CPM with the hope that patients who are presented with the CPM as an option for post surgery recovery will be empowered to make an informed decision on whether or not to use it. – Dr. David Halley
