Watch this video to learn about the advantages of mobilization and the downfalls of bed rest following hospitalization, especially in the elderly.
It is common knowledge that exercise has a positive impact on health. However, the misleading notion that bed rest is best when you are in the hospital is a major barrier towards recovery, and can lead to health issues that are unrelated to the reason for being in the hospital in the first place.
The MOVE ON ARTIC (Adopting Research to Improve Care) Project aims to implement mobilization strategies to increase the mobility of patients and reduce length of stay in hospitals.
