A patients point of view The little finger of my right hand had been frozen immovable at right angles to my palm for 8 years. Following surgery, I began using the WaveFlex CPM continuously during the day which greatly reduced post surgical pain and most days the need for pain killers altogether. My occupational therapist was amazed by the speed and extent of my recovery after just two weeks and I have no doubt I owe my speedy recovery in large part to the WaveFlex CPM.

A true original: OrthoAgility CPM devices CPM devices are available for a wide variety of joint rehabilitation, primarily synovial joints (hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow, and wrist), following surgery or trauma (including fracture, infection, etc.). It began with the first ever CPM device in 1978, and continues today with the OrthoAgility line of CPM devices for hand, wrist, forearm, elbow, shoulder, jaw, great toe, ankle and knee jointsthe latest generation of products based on the original, global-first work of Dr. Robert Salter.
Benefits of Continuous Passive Motion Across the board, studies show that the use of CPM devices (like those in the OrthoAgility line) during the first phase of post-operative rehabilitation provides a variety of benefits: faster healing, less pain, shorter hospital stays, reduced therapy costs and better end mobility results. Here are a few clinical study snapshots that illustrate the many benefits of CPM use:
After Postoperative Rehabilitation of Difficult Pediatric Knee and Elbow Problems: CPM was used to aid postoperative rehab in 7 difficult pediatric knee and elbow problems. 4 patients had joint erosion secondary to hemophilic arthropathy and 3 patients had joint irregularities associated with long-standing limitation of joint movement. Hemophilia patients did not require postoperative manipulation, had decreased hospitalization time and gained a greater ROM.Greene, W.B. - The Use of Continuous Passive Slow Motion in the Postoperative Rehabilitation of Difficult Pediatric Knee and Elbow Problems; J Ped Orthop.Vol 3, No. 4. 419-423. 1983.
After Internal Fixation of Distal Humerus Fractures: Two patients with severe intra-articular fractures of the distal humerus were treated with internal fixation and CPM. CPM aided in achieving 0-135 of elbow flexion in one patient and 30-110 in the other. Both patients had full pronation and supination and pain free elbows.Soffer, S.R., Yahiro, M.A. - CPM After Internal Fixation of Distal Humerous Fractures; Orthopaedic Review.Vol. 19, No. 1, Jan. 1990.
After Surgically Reconstructed Shoulder: The CPM group with rotator cuff repair, anterior acromioplasty or coracoacromial ligament excision with bursectomy achieved the ROM goal in 5.7 days vs. 12 days with the non-CPM group. The CPM group that had total shoulder replacement achieved the ROM goal in 8.9 days vs. 15.2 days with the non-CPM group.Craig, E.V. - Continuous Passive Motion in the Rehabilitation of the Surgically Reconstructed Shoulder: A Preliminary Report; Univ. of Minnesota Hospital.
After Total Knee Arthroplasty: For the average patient undergoing total knee arthroplasty, CPM is more effective in improving ROM, decreasing swelling and reducing the need for manipulation than is conventional therapy and lowers cost. CPM resulted in a net savings of $6,764 over conventional rehab in achieving these results.McInnes, J. et al. - A Controlled Evaluation of Continuous Passive Motion in Patients Undergoing Total Knee Arthroplasty; JAMA.Vol. 268, No. 11.:1423-1428.
After Internal Fixation of Ankle Fractures: Two groups studied. CPM group took an average of 19 weeks to return to work vs. 29 weeks for non-CPM.Davies, S. - Effects of Continuous Passive Movement and Plaster of Paris After Internal Fixation of Ankle Fractures; Physiother.Vol. 77, No. 8. Aug. 1991.
