Early Mobilzation

Early mobilization as soon as medically safe during a recovery from critical illness has been shown to improve long term outcomes for the patient, decrease repositioning needs, expedite discharge and reduce re-admissions.

Designed to Reduce Time Spent in Bed

Seating Matters chairs have been clinically designed to help aid early mobilization and reduce the need for time spent in bed.

How Our Products Can Help

The prescription of correct seating as part of the treatment package often enables early mobilization by supporting the patient to get out of bed earlier and therefore positively impacts their clinical outcome.

Muscle Breakdown

Muscle Breakdown

Bed rest results in 12% loss of muscle strength each week, intensifying to 50% loss after 3-5 weeks.1 Therefore, encouraging the patient to sit in a chair as early as possible into their treatment can be a key factor in order to preserve muscle strength.

Reducing Healthcare Costs

If a person remains in bed, their mobilization can be delayed. This can lead to many secondary complications including pressure injuries and an increased length of stay.
