The immobility crisis 

The impact of immobility acquired conditions such as pressure injuries and VTE is devastating. These potentially fatal yet preventable conditions cause enormous suffering for patients and result in considerable costs for healthcare providers.

 

A lack of resources

The clinical and economic impact of immobility acquired conditions are all too clear. But unfortunately, many care providers lack the time, training, and resources to implement a prevention strategy that really works.

 

The right strategy

We empower caregivers with the right prevention strategies for their needs. Reducing the incidence of pressure injuries and VTE, safeguarding at-risk patients, and keeping people and hospitals moving towards improved outcomes.
