As well as sitting out, early mobilisation promotes independence, discharge and helps you return to normal activity of daily life.

It also helps to ease/prevent wind pain, prevent chest infections and blood clots.  You will be encouraged to mobilise 4 times a day and your physio will advise you on what support you need. We will aim for you to be able to mobilise 60m in each mobility session. Once you are independent, you may be required to complete a stair assessment prior to discharge. Your physio will discuss this with you close to discharge home.
