Product Description

CPM, also called continuous passive motion, is a device that is used to gently flex and extend the knee joint. The CPM machine can be used after surgery to allow the knee joint to slowly move. The initial thought was that CPM would improve motion following knee replacement surgery, as well as other knee procedures, and eliminate the problem of stiffness. By placing the knee in this device soon after surgery, scar tissue would not develop, and the problem of stiffness would not be a concern.

Many health insurance carriers cover most, if not all, of the rental/leasing fees associated with using a CPM machine for the first crucial 2+ weeks after knee surgery. Check with your carrier and orthopedic surgeon prior to surgery to determine your options. For best results, pair a CPM machine with a continuously fed cryo (cooling) system such as a Breg Cryo Cuff <tm>.

As of February 18, 2005, I'm 2 weeks post-op from ACL reconstruction (patellar autograft) surgery with repairs (removal of damaged portion) to both my medial and lateral meniscuses. Thanks to the CPM, cryo cuff system, lots of at home exercising and a good bit of luck, I reached 115 degrees flexion and 0 degrees extension just 3 days post-op at my first physical therapy (PT) session. And 2 weeks post-op (today), I now am at 130 degrees flexion (just 5 degrees shy of the generally accepted "full flexion" range for post-op knees). Highly recommended for keeping the knee limber, flexible and active, particularly during that first week when every movement takes twice as long and hurts five times more than you expect.

The Flexmate CPM machine, which this one appears to be, is extremely quiet. You can easily sleep with it running, although you may develop a crick in your neck due to having to sleep on your back. The neck cramp is worth the increased flexion in your knee, though!

Over priced ? Just rent , I do know it's a must.
I just had knee replacement and I am renting one $47 a day. So for several weeks renting is a better deal. My insurance is helping. Not sure by how much. I can say this is a godsend, if knee doesn't move it hurts like crazy. I am sleep with unit running. Not using one of these will cause scar tissue so bad you will be back in surgery room so they can force knee to bend. Your asleep while it's done but must deal with pain for not using machine as instructed. I was told it like snapping a 2x4 in half . So be sure to use and have a good healthy recovery!

Keep looking I found this at 2,300 on other web sites so if you have to purchase one this is not the place. Keep looking and you will easily find a better price. I agree with rent if you can. These things are so overpriced.
