Stage: Covid-19 care

In the recovery phase without ICU admission, posture optimization is important, in addition to respiratory rehab.

Early mobilization can be intensified (Source: NPI Knowledge in Motion). In addition to the many bedridden patients in the Covid-19 department, there will also be mobile patients who can get out of bed but are not yet fully mobile. Here, too, mobilization is important for muscles and joints.

Patients will have to learn to recognize and explore their physical capabilities again. There are several options for doing this safely from a chair or wheelchair.

Tracking the recovery process can be supported by various software solutions that are as close as possible to what you already use. The well-known 'Excel lists' are prevented and the suitability for (later) research is guaranteed.
