Abstract This paper describes the use of continuous passive motion (CPM) in 14 knees with stiffness after total knee replacement. CPM resulted in a significant increase in flexion and also reduction of flexion deformities. This increase occurred in both rheumatoid and osteo-arthritic patients. The mean increase during CPM treatment was 26°. There was a mean loss of 10° with a minimum follow up of 6 months following CPM treatment.
