Patient Mobility Solutions
Mobilize patients during chemotherapy treatment
Patients undergoing cancer treatments are often tethered to large IV pumps, oxygen, and catheters. These patients are motivated to ambulate, but these medical devices make ambulation challenging, often requiring multiple caregivers. The LIVENGOOD PACE consolidates all of their medical devices onto one, easy-to-maneuver, mobile device which allows them to ambulate frequently. Patients that ambulate frequently rebound more quickly from chemotherapy and radiation and have less incidence of depression.The PACE makes patients’ and caregivers’ lives much easier by drastically reducing the effort required for ambulation. Easier and more frequent mobilization leads to happier, healthier patients:
"There is evidence that regular physical activity or exercise can decrease emotional stress, blood pressure, the duration of neutropenia, thrombocytopenia, and pain. Exercise has also been shown to increase quality of life, improve V02 Max, sleep patterns, and cognition"
