Continuous Passive Motion (CPM) devices are used during the first phase of rehabilitation following a manipulation, soft tissue surgical procedure or trauma. CPM's constantly move the joints through a controlled range of motion; the exact range is dependent upon the joint and controlled by the user by following physician’s instructions. In most cases the range of motion is increased over time. Speed, pause and other variables can also be programmed.
The goals CPM usage are:
Control post-operative pain
Provide passive motion in a specific plane of movement
Protect the healing repair or tissue
Helps prevent scar tissue formation
Improves Range of Motion (ROM)
Improve joint recovery
Improve surgery success
CPM's mechanisms of action for aiding joint recovery are dependent upon what surgery is performed. One mechanism is the movement of synovial fluid to allow for better diffusion of nutrients into damaged cartilage, and diffusion of other materials out; such as blood and metabolic waste products. Another mechanism is the prevention of fibrous scar tissue formation in the joint, which tends to decrease the range of motion for a joint.
CPM therapy benefits patients by facilitating earlier motion and earlier return to normal function. These patients also have less pain, swelling, edema, and reduction of scarring/adhesion formation. OrthoSTAT, Corp. provides CPM equipment for the Ankle, Elbow, Hand, Hip, Knee, Shoulder, Toe and Wrist.

A Knee Walker or Knee Scooter is a three or four-wheeled alternative to crutches or a traditional walker as an ambulation aid. It is known by many other names, such as a knee cruiser, knee caddy, orthopedic scooter, podiatry scooter or leg walker.
Over the years it has taken on many forms, from small-wheeled devices suitable for indoor use to larger sturdier units capable of use outside on grass or paved surfaces. Today’s version is usually a lightweight, foldable design that, with the knee flexed, supports the shin of the unusable limb. The opposite foot makes contact with the floor or ground, providing propulsion.
The objective of the scooter is to create a safe, comfortable, and easy-to-maneuver alternative to the traditional crutch. Prior to its introduction, those experiencing foot surgery, bunionectomies, gout, below the knee amputations, diabetic ulcers and wounds, as well as foot sprains, or fractures had no choice but to limit activity during rehabilitation. Their only options were crutches, a traditional walker, a wheelchair or bed rest.
The scooter does have limitations that may make it unsuitable for some patients, such as those with leg injuries above or near the knee. It cannot negotiate stairs, and is significantly heavier and more difficult to load into a vehicle than crutches.
