Early Mobilization

Our unique Early Mobilization Program with features such as Microshifting and Mobi-Lift® helps patients recover earlier and saves significant costs to the hospital.

Challenges

  • Risky to move the patient due to their serious condition
  • Longer stay of immobile patient
  • Complications associated with long hospital stay
  • Increased costs for the hospital
