Arjo Mobility Gallery
The Mobility Gallery is an assessment and communication tool based on different levels of functional mobility; from completely mobile and independent residents/ patients, to those who are entirely bedridden, named in alphabetic order from Albert to Emma. The Mobility Gallery will aid development of a higher standard of care, stemming from insight into - and monitoring of - the requirements and preconditions for this type of care, as well as for the well-being of caregivers. Choices relating to care are mostly based on resident/ patient assessments, and we must recognise the fact that there is no such thing as a typical resident/patient. In order to plan our residents/ patients’ care, these choices need to be conscious and well balanced. In other words, as well as tailoring care to the individual, there also needs to be some sort of standardisation and classification system. The five levels of mobility are the basis of the Mobility Gallery. Stimulating mobility and ultimately respecting passivity is crucial from a quality of care perspective.
