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.
