Arjo enables mobility
The human body is made to move. At Arjo, we believe that high quality of care and positive clinical outcomes begin by improving patient mobility.
Movement helps patients recover faster. It also increases their independence and sense of dignity during the care process. When staff is given the right conditions for increasing patient mobility, while using the right equipment and care skills, the risk of injury is reduced. Job satisfaction increases and general well-being improves. Moreover, improved clinical outcomes and higher quality of care also enable improved financial outcomes.
With our experience, knowledge and products, we work to contribute to a sustainable healthcare system. Our philosophy – Positive Eight© – is based on each patient’s specific needs and creates a positive chain reaction, which benefits everyone in healthcare.
Improved results for all
Arjo has for many years emphasized the importance of mobility throughout the healthcare process. Increased mobility drives a chain reaction of positive results for both the patient, caregiver, and ultimately also the healthcare providers. Arjo’s Positive Eight© philosophy illustrates the clear connection between mobility and a patient’s physical and mental well-being.
