Corona Virus Updates 

We make ICU Beds and more specifically a very special one that helps with ARDS patients and therefore particularly helpful for Corona Virus Patients.  

  • Early Mobility decreases Vent days by 1.5 days for patients with ARDS (Source PADIS guidelines Society of Critical Care Medicine 2018) presented from expert ICU rehab panel during APTA webinar Saturday March 20, 2020

 

  • Early Mobility decreases ICU days by 2 for patients with ARDs (Same source)

 

  • Early Mobility for patients who are ventilated can take several people (Risk of exposure, use of multiple sets of PPE)

 

  • Patients who are Covid positive cannot be discharged to Post-acute care settings. They must stay in the hospital until they can go home. 

 

  • Use of The TLB enables  Early Mobility with 1-2 staff. The BED does the lifting. 

  • Use of the TLB frees up staff to do other things
