S 962-2 VIS-A-VIS
Sitting up in a conventional hospital bed can be very painful, e.g. after abdominal surgery. But this is exactly when such patients mobility should be increased. After all, compensatory care can lead to increased need for care, requiring more time and effort and a longer length of stay.
The Vis-a-Vis supports the patients mobility at an early stage by enabling a proper seating position, with the feet firmly on the ground. The patient is mobilized in a forward direction by only one caregiver; this promotes faster convalescence.
