Maintain joint Movement of muscle flexibility, or muscle group circulation with external assistance.
can be used for inducing functional ranges of joint motion and sensory feedback to maintain or improve neuromuscular function after complete or incomplete SCIs, respectively.

Pendular exercises and self-assisted shoulder flexion are common passive exercises
that have been previously reported in a rehabilitation protocol (Millett, Wilcox, O'Holleran, & Warner, 2006) and were chosen to represent the passive phase of rehabilitation.
Robotic devices assist patients in performing repetitive tasks (active or passive exercises
), addressing several poststroke rehabilitation purposes (e.g., functional training; joint flexibility maintenance and joint stiffness reduction; prevention of muscle/tendon shortening with related deformities, pain, and alterations in muscle-tendon unit mechanics; enhancement of somatosensory and proprioceptive input; reduction of edema, deep venous thrombosis, decubitus ulcers, and pain by promoting circulation) [11,16-19].
He was taught to practise hydro-oleo therapy using any vegetable oil to keep the area hydrated, along with passive exercises
for ulnar clawing.
We concluded that immediate reduction of hip joints and early passive exercises
followed with active-assisted range of motion were very useful for a successful treatment and for an early full-weight bearing mobilization.
Despite his chronic hypertension, Enrile is able to sleep well, eat his hospital rations and do passive exercises
in the morning.
The microtraumas in the soft tissues resulted from forced passive exercises
and muscle weakness (imbalance) create a mechanical stress at the muscle-tendon junction.
