Improving patient health through early mobilisation
Patient handling solutions offer benefits not only for healthcare professionals but also provide positive outcomes for patients. Studies show that prolonged immobility negatively affects almost all organ systems. In an intensive care setting, long periods of immobility increase the likelihood of pressure injuries (PI), ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), and venous thromboembolism (VTE).
Consequently, prioritising early mobilisation is critical to reducing the risk of these conditions and minimising hospital stays.
