Continuous PAssive Motion
« on: November 11, 2005, 11:29:11 AM »
Hello All,

Can anyone advise me about where I could hire a CPM machine in the UK ? I have no insurance and the NHS will not provide one in my area . Any suggestions would be appreciated .

Jeanie,

Hi, do not know where in the UK you would find a CPM rental, but how it works here is you can either rent them from the OS office or you can rent them from the Medical Supply - dealers that stock the custom braces & cold therapy units.

Maybe call your OS office and ask them for information about these machines - they must know where you could rent the machines.

Good luck,

Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately the NHS will not supply a machine for home use .... they are too expensive to buy and it would be much better for me to rent one for a couple of months . However unable to find anywhere in the UK that will do so.

Cheers

Hey Jeanie,

Have a look at www.ebay.co.uk. I know you'd rather rent one than buy one, but paying out for rental over a couple of months could add up to the reduced cost of buying one second hand.
I've had a quick look for myself and at the moment, they seem to be between 220-350.
I know it's not ideal but it may be worth thinking about. I'm considering getting one and sharing the cost with a friend who also wants to use one.
The only downfall I've found so far is that they are all in the US so God only knows what cost the carriage will be!
Alternatively, you could have a look at www.emslimited.co.uk. This is a company which sells CPM machines to hospitals etc but they may be able to at least put you in touch with a Company that will rent one out to you.

Hope this helps,

Take care,

Laura,
