Biomedical engineering students participate in an international conference
Under the supervision of the Head of the Biomedical Engineering Department, Prof. Dr. Wissam Kazem Hamdan and Prof. Dr. Saad Mahmoud Ali, a group of students from the Biomedical Engineering Department participated in an international conference and obtained approval to publish the research in a Scopus magazine.
The research dealt with the study and discussion of current issues related to components, designs, manufacturing, and processing methods of a continuous passive motion (CPM) machine. Review and study the latest research and studies related to continuous passive motion machine (CPM) design and related study of lower extremity diseases, advantages and complications of the operation. The design, development, and manufacture of a simple, lightweight continuous passive motion (CPM) machine was implemented as an effective method to help relieve knee pain through physical therapy. The design and manufacture of many parts of the machine involved the use of ANSYS 18.0 mechanical design software. 3D printing has been carried out. The efficiency of the CPM device, with its three speeds, has been tested and tested on many paralyzed patients as a result of strokes, risks after knee surgery, and severe pain in the lower extremities. The device has been shown to significantly help patients in reducing pain, the risk of DVT after knee surgery in increasing the joint's range of motion, and in reducing the length of hospital stay.
