Reduced Length of Stay

Studies have shown that increased ambulation can reduce patients’ length of stay by up to two and a half days.[1] By consolidating patient equipment on the same device both bedside and during ambulation, the IVEA makes it possible for staff to ambulate more patients more often, to help speed recovery.

Ambulation Rates Key to Recovery

Without adequate mobilization a patient can lose up to 5 percent of muscle mass daily.[2] In fact, the main variable driving functional dependency, cognitive decline and functional loss is the number of days of bed rest in the hospital.[3]

With increased ambulation patients not only retain function, they also gain a greater sense of independence and control over their own recovery. For hospitals focused on quality patient care, improved outcomes and better resource management, the IVEA can be an effective means to safely reduce their patients’ length of stay.

This was wonderful. The patient with two chest tubes and IV pumps was walking the halls with ease.
