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