Each level of mobility is personified in the characters Albert, Barbara, Carl, Doris and Emma. The image in the centre of the circle represents the functional level of mobility of the resident or patient, from independent to dependant, whilst the different colours represent the potential risk to the caregiver when providing assistance without the suitable equipment.
Understanding how your resident or patient can contribute to their mobility, as well as safeguarding caregivers from injuries is essential in helping to find the right equipment and care processes to facilitate or maintain mobility.
Assessing mobility levels
The Mobility Gallery uses five colour coded icons to communicate the level of functional mobility of the patient/resident from independent to dependent.
The Mobility Gallery enables you to visualise risk through the coloured circles. These communicate the potential risk of physical overload to a caregiver using the ‘traffic light’ risk scale, where green is a low risk and red is high risk.
Identifying opportunities for improving/maintaining mobility:
The Mobility Gallery enables you to identify the correct equipment to promote mobility
and improvement or maintenance of function and mobility.
Pinpointing quality care solutions:
The Mobility Gallery can help assess the correct equipment to promote functional mobility in daily tasks and transfers.
Evaluating facility outcomes
The Mobility Gallery can help to Identify type and volume of equipment needed to promote efficient workflows and outcomes.
Understanding the different patient/resident functional levels with the help of the Mobility Gallery, can assist in guiding the Arjo research and development team on future planning.
