PS1 Pronation / Supination CPM

The leading portable forearm device features include:

  • CE certified
  • Full range of motion (0° – 90° pronation and supination)
  • Unique anatomically correct motion for patient safety
  • Two force settings for customized treatment
  • Easy to operate
  • Fully ambulatory and portable, battery operated
  • Durable, lightweight design
  • Reverse-on-load patient safety feature
PS1 Pronation / Supination CPM Device
The PS1 Forearm Pronation / Supination CPM is a portable device for delivering the proven benefits of CPM treatment to the forearm. Continuous passive motion has demonstrated over the years its ability to help patients regain postoperative range of motion and avoid the negative effects of immobilization. By gently moving the forearm through a controlled pronation/supination range of motion, the PS1 can effectively help prevent postoperative stiffness of the distal and proximal radial-ulnar joints and the soft tissue connecting the radius and ulna.
Range of motion is adjustable from 0 to 90 degrees of pronation/supination. A torque isolating feature ensures anatomically correct motion over the entire range of motion which will  reduce increased stress on the joints and increases patient comfort. The safety feature of two reverse-on-load force setting options allow the force of motion to be customized for optimum treatment results.

Durable, lightweight construction and ease of use makes the PS1 ideal for both hospital and in-home environments. The unit is easily attached to the patient, and can be worn comfortably for extended periods of time to ensure the full benefits of CPM treatment. Patient compliance is further enhanced by the PS1’s portability. A rechargeable motion controller and convenient shoulder sling allow the patient to be fully ambulatory during treatment.

Contraindications
Do not use the device if any of the following are present: untreated or uncontrolled infection, unstable fractures or hemorrhaging.

Indications
Immediate postoperative management after the following, where indicated:

  • Distal radius fractures (when stable)
  • Fractures of the radius and ulna
  • Fractures of the radial head

About us

Company details

In the late 1970’s, Dr. Robert Salter conducted research that indicated moving a joint as soon as possible following surgery allowed the patient to recover mobility and function more quickly. By moving the joint immediately after surgery, the synovial fluid necessary for nourishment of the joint would continue to circulate which does not happen when the joint is immobilized.

Along with John Saringer, an engineer, Salter designed the first CPM device designed for use on rabbits. Rabbits have many of the same traits as human beings. Based on the performance and the potential of early CPM models, John Saringer started Toronto Medical Corporation (TMC) and began manufacturing CPM devices which are a precursor to the well established OrthoAgility® line.
