Sara Combilizer

There is significant clinical evidence supporting that early patient mobility as part of an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) rehabilitation program help counter the effects of ICU acquired weakness, which in turn improves the patient recovery process and long-term functional outcome. (Morris 2007)

With Sara® Combilizer, due to its exceptional positioning flexibility, even patients that previously deemed high risk or inappropriate to mobilise can easily be mobilised to a standing, sitting or supine position in a secure and comfortable way. This includes patients with low attention and level of consciousness, poor trunk stability, mechanical ventilation and hemofiltration lines in groin. (Dueck 2010, McWilliams 2013)

Getting out of bed – early, carefully and efficiently

There is clear clinical evidence of the positive physical effects on early mobilisation, giving mobility and exercise therapy by having the patient sitting and standing out of bed, already in the ICU, By getting mobilized out of bed already during the first days within the intensive care unit and even under mechanical ventilation, patients do not only get better physical stimulation, such as stronger muscles and skeleton, better vascular and respiratory function; in addition the risk of patients acquiring delirium is reduced. (Brahmbatt 2010)

The dimensions and powered multi-function design of Sara Combilizer support the ICU patient to get out-of-bed mobilisation therapy, while at the same time providing ergonomic working conditions and minimal physical strain on the caregivers.

With Sara Combilizer mobilisation therapy is secure and efficient, both for the patients and the caregivers.

The patient is secured by a handling belt system that eliminates risk of falls, and other built in mechanisms enables a quick repositioning of the patient to a supine position if an emergency situation occur.

Due to its design and dimensions, transfer of the patient to and from Sara Combilizer is secure and quick, minimising the resources needed to prepare the patient for mobilisation therapy.



Reducing length of stay

Intensive care, especially initial care using mechanical ventilation, involves high cost. Early mobilisation can help reduce the length of ICU and hospital stay, cutting cost and improving financial outcomes (McWilliams 2013, Lord 2013)
