Progressive Mobility® Program Clinical Outcome Goals


We've designed the Progressive Mobility® Program to help make it easier for you to implement an early mobility protocol in your ICU. It's built on the most recent clinical evidence, checked by national thought leaders, and provides the practical tools you need to get your patients moving. Using the Progressive Mobility® Program may help your patients in many ways:

  • Lower costs from fewer ventilator days.

  • Fewer penalties from unplanned readmissions.

  • Reduced mortality.
  • Fewer complications from respiratory infections, delirium and pressure ulcers.

  • Reduced costs from shorter length of stay.
Early mobility protocols similar to Progressive Mobility Programs have consistently shown reductions in ICU LOS, Hospital LOS, Ventilation Duration, VAP/VAE rates, and overall costs.2
