EMI / Early Mobilization in ICU


Early mobilization is essential for a patient's physical and mental recovery in the Intensive Care Unit. EMI enables simplified early mobilization by improving the cable organization, wireless patient monitoring, and guidance.

When Early Mobilization is performed, the wireless monitoring device provides the patient's freedom of movement. The EMI projector guides the ICU staff, patient's relatives, or the patient through the exercise by projections. The EMI software gathers all information about the patient and creates a patient-tailored mobilization plan for fast and effective recovery in the ICU.
