Early mobility programs work
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."
