Passive Range of Motion, written by Lauren Andrew Hebert, DPT, PT, OCS with input from PT's and OT's across the country, is intended to teach passive range of motion exercises to Nurses, CNA's, PT and OT students and aides, plus patient family members.
Bedridden or inactive patients require frequent range of motion exercises to maintain joint mobility and muscle flexibility and to minimize contractures that prevent recovery and make care far more difficult. These are basic patient care skills required of health care providers. Student classes, staff inservices and family member education must frequently be held to teach and review this important topic.
Passive Range of Motion provides high quality and efficient instruction on this topic. Schools for health care providers, hospitals, health care facilities, and home care providers will find this program to be an invaluable tool for teaching students, staff, and patient families this basic skill.
