Following a knee replacement or reconstructive surgery, the first few weeks are very important in terms of your recovery. If you'd a knee replaced, it's important that you work and bend the knee to break up the scar tissue that has formed. You may feel like you can't really move or bend it at first, but if you don't restore normal motion to the joint, you may never have full functionality. With a knee CPM machine from The Medcom Group, you can reduce pain and swelling in your knee, as well as maintain and increase your range of motion.
This Kinetec Spectra Knee CPM can be rented for up to eight weeks, so depending on your doctor's recommendation and prescription, you can increase your flexibility and range of motion each day. If there is a large buildup of scar tissue in your knee, this CPM machine can help break it up through normal motion and exercise. If you've had a full knee replacement, instead of a partial, it's even more important that you work the new joint and make it feel as natural as possible inside your leg. Your doctor may recommend regular massage of the patella, or kneecap, in order to break down scar tissue and reduce swelling in the joint. Coupled with our knee CPM machine, you can be up and around in less time.
The Medcom Group wants you to have a successful recovery, and we know that it can be frustrating to work and rehab your surgically-repaired knee, but only with the proper discipline and therapy can you hope to have full range of motion, as you did before your surgery.

When Dr. Robert Salter first came up with the concept of Continuous Passive Motion (CPM) back in the 1970's, he envisioned patients with knee problems benefitting from the gentle, rhythmic motion his devices were intended to provide. Dr. Salter’s studies led to a number of revelations that, at the time, were ground breaking.1) Getting a patient’s knee moving passively, [...]
