The Kinex Shoulder Continuous Passive Motion (CPM) device provides Phase I rehabilitation therapy in the comfort of a patient’s home. CPM therapy is proven to provide high-quality, cost-effective care that aids in the recovery and rehabilitation process after surgery or injury, leading to improved post-surgical outcomes. Phase I rehabilitation with the Kinex Shoulder CPM can lead to fewer traditional physical therapy visits, earlier return to work and other activities, and reduced costs following shoulder surgery.
Using a motorized arm, the Kinex Shoulder CPM device slowly and accurately repositions your shoulder joint for the amount of time and degrees - range of motion prescribed by your physician following your procedure. Your joint heals safely, while soft tissue stiffness is avoided, and the integrity of the surgical repair is maintained.
1. Promotes Joint Mobility: Continuous passive motion devices help to maintain and improve range of motion (ROM) in the shoulder joint. The continuous and controlled movement prevents the development of adhesions and stiffness.
2. Reduces Joint Stiffness: By keeping the shoulder joint in motion, CPM devices help prevent scar tissue formation, which can contribute to joint stiffness. This is particularly beneficial after shoulder surgery.
3. Enhances Synovial Fluid Circulation: Continuous passive motion promotes the circulation of synovial fluid in the joint. Synovial fluid acts as a lubricant, nourishing the cartilage and aiding joint health.
4. Decreases Pain and Swelling: Controlled and gentle movement provided by CPM devices can help reduce pain and swelling in the shoulder joint, contributing to a more comfortable recovery process.
5. Accelerates Healing: CPM devices may contribute to the acceleration of the healing process by promoting blood flow to the injured area and aiding in removing waste products from the joint.
6. Patient Compliance: Using a CPM device can be more convenient and less challenging for patients compared to performing manual exercises. This may result in better compliance with the prescribed rehabilitation program.
7. Early Postoperative Use: CPM devices are often used in the early stages of postoperative rehabilitation when active movement may be limited. This allows for controlled motion without placing excessive strain on the healing tissues.
8. Customizable and Controlled Movement: The settings on CPM devices can be adjusted, by a Kinex patient care representative, to match the physician's specific needs and the patient's tolerance levels. This allows for a customized rehabilitation program tailored to the individual's condition.
9. Prevents Contractures: Continuous passive motion helps prevent the development of contractures, which are abnormal shortening of muscles or tendons that can limit joint movement.
