Living means moving. With an early initial mobilization, seriously-ill patients increase significantly their chances of recovery. Furthermore, a German guideline says, that mobilisation should take part within 72 hours after admission to intensive care.
Early and initial mobilization play a decisive role in rehabilitating patients in intensive care. The therapy and mobilization chair Mobilizer® Medior has been developed precisely for this purpose. Featuring a patented length adjustment system and seat tilt, the chair facilitates verticalisation of the body in one continuous movement, allowing the patient to be mobilised and moved into a standing position at a much earlier stage in their rehabilitation. With our therapy chair Mobilizer® Medior, an early mobilization is safe and reliable even with ventilated intensive care patients. The Medior combines the functions of a recliner, a wheelchair and a standing bed. It can be moved to the hospital bed in lying position and adjusted to its height. With a transfer aid like our rollboard, the patient can be securely transferred to the Mobilizer® by nursing staff. Now, the patient can then be moved gently, securely and ergonomically over the sitting position into a standing position.
The mobilization process reduces typical diseases that occur after longer immobility of patients, thus reducing the risk of their developing pneumonia. Due to the accelerated recovery process and the reduced maintenance effort, enormous economic savings can be recorded: patients can be discharged sooner, hospital rooms can be re-used more quickly.
