Perhaps this idea of continuous passive motion may even be a helpful therapy following abdominal/pelvic surgery. I remember that the question has been asked as to whether movement is better than bed rest following abdominal/pelvic surgery. Joanne mentioned in her message today that after being in the hospital for 5 days, she went walking for 5 hours. Maybe there is something to this.
