Early Mobility Walker

From ATWiki

Abstract

Mobilizing intensive care unit patients has been shown to improve their health outcomes by shortening their healing time and length of hospital stay. However, getting these critically ill patients up and moving can be a challenge. Through our work with ICU staff from the Medical University of South Carolina, we have designed an early mobility walker that provides support to the patient and ease of use for the clinician. Unlike our competitors, we have created a design that provides patient access directly from the bed, collapsibility for easy storage in limited hospital space, and support for a variety of medical equipment commonly found in the ICU.
