What are CPM motion splints?
CPM motion splints (Continuous Passive Motion) are externally powered motion splints that enable passive joint mobilization, e.g. after surgery. Therapy with a motorized motion splint ensures pain-free and gentle movement of the joints without strain. The use of a motor splint directly after surgery usually shortens the healing process and helps to become mobile again quickly.
The movement parameters (extent, speed, duration of therapy, etc.) are determined by the attending physician or physiotherapist. The motor splint can be used both in the hospital and in the home environment. Treatment must begin immediately after surgery.
