The Importance of  Early Ambulation

Rehabilitation as a Philosophy of Care to Improve Clinical and Economic Outcomes


Based on the popular presentation, this book discuses the clinical benefits, historical practice, and economic factors of early ambulation. 

The first step toward addressing this challenge is to begin thinking of rehabilitation, not as something confined to a specific location, or hospital department, but as a philosophy of care.

This detailed guide includes:

  • The Risks of Bedrest
  • Strategies for Early Mobility Intervention
  • Economic Benefits of Early Ambulation
  • Vapotherm Transfer Unit as a Tool for Ambulation
These guidelines are based on Vapotherm’s assessment of peer-reviewed published literature, physician interviews, and physiological modeling.
