Exercisers, Continuous Passive Motion
Definition : Passive exercisers designed to apply controlled movements (e.g. flexion, extension, rotation) on limb joints without muscular exertion. These exercisers typically consist of an electronically-controlled electromechanism that is attached to the patient limb to provide periodic, rhythmic movements through a range of motion. Continuous passive motion exercisers are intended to prevent joint stiffness; they are used for physical therapy and rehabilitation after illness, trauma, and/or surgical treatment. Dedicated exercisers for the upper limb and lower limbs are available.
