An interview with Dr. Carl Freeman about CPM, X10, Pre-hab and patient results after knee replacement. We also discuss the new “arthroplasty results” study authored by Dr. Roubal and Dr. Freeman as well as a recent research publication by Dr. Calatayud about the value of Pre-hab before surgery.
We examine the Continuous Passive Motion machine for knee surgery recovery. Robert Salter (MD) and John Saringer (an engineer) commercialized the CPM in 1978. Extensive research and clinical references included here.
Everyone else thought Nan’s recovery was done. Her bend was “good enough”, her pain was gone, she should “be happy” with the results she had. Nan did not agree.
The last thing she expected were knee Manipulation Under Anesthesia complications… in Lois’ case a patellar tendon tear. A lady with a great attitude and a fascinating life story this is Part 1 of a two part interview. We interviewed Lois right after her Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) and we will chat again after she completes her full recovery.
The incidence of Knee Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) can be as high as 8% of all surgeries. The rate of having a second MUA has been reported to be 25%. The question then is what next after Manipulation Under Anesthesia. Dan’s solved it with the X10 Knee Recovery System.
