The TheraPacer™ CPM is a quiet, lightweight, computer-controlled continuous passive motion (CPM) device that provides customized therapy to patients recovering from TMJ surgery and dysfunction.

Continuous passive motion is the therapeutic technique of slowly moving a joint without using your own muscles. Motion is the only way to heal joint tissue.

The TheraPacer CPM is an effective and safe choice for joint rehabilitation and recovery to prevent scarring, trismus, and ankylosis.

Following surgery, the TheraPacer CPM promotes development of joint function and helps create a functional joint structure from surrounding tissues. The TheraPacer CPM also offers static progressive stretch therapy for patients suffering from tight tissues and scarring. Static progressive stretching incrementally increasing and holding joint stretches to elongate the tissues around the jaw for increased range-of-motion.

The TheraPacer CPMs are an anatomically correct mandibular CPM device. It is transportable and can be used in the home or workplace. The TheraPacer CPMs are hospital safe and offers programmable start point speed and range of motion.
