Early Mobility Works

Early mobility programs work

Hill-Rom

Early mobility programs are designed to bring a patient through a sequence of motion exercises with the goal of baseline health.16

A recent systematic literature review by Stiller17 found:

  • 26 studies on the topic of early mobilization from 2000 – 2012
  • These showed that early mobility programs are "…feasible and safe…"
  • They …"result in significant functional benefits which may translate into positive effects on the ICU and hospital LOS."
