Arjo Mobility Gallery resources

Our Mobility Gallery resources

The Arjo resource centre is an online library that hosts all the most up-to date and comprehensive assets that we have available on the Mobility Gallery. Each of these assets is available to the public and aims to provide additional resources to assist caregivers, patients, residents, relatives and care home facilities.

Mobility Gallery booklet

The Mobility Gallery booklet unpacks the five levels of functional
mobility by relating them to five individuals – all people you could
expect to meet in your everyday life. Not only does it help you
become familiar with the mobility issues which face residents,
patients and their caregivers, but it also gives you a clear framework
for assessing their unmet needs in the facilities and wards where they
live and work.

Mobility in care
The booklet brings each character to life with crisp illustrations and
descriptions. At a glance, you get a clear impression of their level of
independence and its impact on their daily lives. The booklet covers
four types of care which are impacted by mobility:

• Long-term care
• Acute care
• Bariatric care
• Special care

Educational posters

With their clear design and minimal text, the educational posters
display the five characters of the Mobility Gallery along with the
Positive Eight, which illustrates the connection between mobility
and quality of care. Each poster focuses on one of the characters
from the Mobility Gallery, and shows their four variants based on
the four types of care impacted by mobility:

• Long-term care
• Acute care
• Bariatric care
• Special care

Mobility Gallery posters

The Mobility Gallery posters depict each of the characters from
Albert to Emma, focusing on their level of mobility and the care
that they need to receive. There are five posters in all. Four of them
show all five characters in each type of care:

• Long-term care
• Acute care
• Bariatric care
• Special care

The fifth poster depicts the Positive 8, which clearly illustrates the
connection between mobility and quality of care.

Mobility Gallery clinical references

The methodology which underpins the Mobility Gallery is based on peer-reviewed clinical and research evidence. This is essential. Not only does care need to be high quality, but it also needs to be safe for patients and residents and the people who care for them. Along the entire care pathway, the mobility and independence of residents and patients plays a major role in decision-making for caregivers and facility managers. So, they need an assessment tool they can trust.

The Mobility Gallery reference document details the evidence supporting the Mobility Gallery and the Positive 8, which illustrates the connection between mobility and quality of care.
