a CPM (continuous passive motion) device attached to one of your legs intermittently over the next three days.
An optional portion of the study is available to help determine if moving the leg repeatedly with a mechanical device helps prevent muscle loss and weakness. In this optional portion of the study, the subject would have a CPM (continuous passive motion) device attached to one of the subject's legs intermittently over the next three days. Without any effort from the subject , the machine would move the subjects leg back and forth (flexing at the hip and the knee) repeatedly.
This machine is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat patients after they have knee replacement surgery to help preserve the range of motion of the joint while minimizing risk of damage to the joint from more intensive exercise. The use of the device for this study is investigational.
