Why the CPM Machine Failed to Solve Knee Surgery Recovery
The Continuous Passive Motion machine (CPM) does not increase a patient’s range of motion or strength. It does not or shorten recovery. It doesn’t help, and can often hurt a patient’s knee.
The X10 Knee Machine is not a CPM machine. It relies on an entirely different mechanism. It does not hurt to use, and is the only machine that builds range of motion and strength. The X10 reports patient data wirelessly so surgeons and other professionals can monitor daily progress.
The CPM machine is a story of failed early research and technology. If you are interested in the enormous body of research about the Continuous Passive Motion machine click here (as compiled by orthopedic surgeon, Dr. David Halley).
