Guldmann Rehabilitation

Early mobilisation enables the patient to start rehabilitating sooner.


Rehabilitation through early mobilisation

Hospitalized persons spend most of the day in bed which may result in severe health consequences.

Immobility increases the risk of pulmonary embolisms and skin complications, as well as loss of muscle mass and strength, which influences length of hospitalization and life functions after discharge.



Intensive Care

  • Respiratory consequences: pneumonia, atelectasis and pulmonary embolism
  • Constipation
  • Incontinence
  • Tissue injury and pressure sore
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Reduced muscle strength and muscle mass
  • Reduced physical fitness
  • Reduced balance especially for the aged patient

It is therefore a high priority to mobilise patients very early, often during their hospital stay.

Early mobilisation will enable the patient to start rehabilitating sooner and will enhance recovery after surgery by improving circulation and reducing the risk of infection and other complications.

Challenges to this goal include risks such as patient falls and a high level of assistance is required.
Ceiling lifts with the correct slings can support early mobilisation and training of the hospitalized patient in a safe way for both the patient and staff. ICU, medical, orthopaedic and bariatric patients can all benefit from using the ceiling lifts and slings.


Standing Exercise Sit to Stand
Active Trainer ensures the patient and physiotherapist’s safety when the patient is training getting up into a standing position from the edge of the bed. It can also be used to create different standing exercises for the end of the bed.
Rehab Push Up Exercise Exercise Bands
When using a Multi Support sling it is possible to progressively challenge the patient and adapt to the patient’s current level of function and provide the amount of assistance you want the patient to have. The sling can be used for training pelvic lift (bridging), pushups, hands and knees (quadruped), developmental postures, stability, stretching and active therapeutic exercise and more.
Exercise Bands

By combining two familiar products – a ceiling-mounted hoist and an elastic training band – and using the new GH Positioning Lock from Guldmann, it is now possible to set up something akin to an exercise machine in the patient’s hospital room.

Intensive Care

The Guldmann Basic Sling is ideal for checking whether the patient is stable, e.g. when seated on the edge of the bed. If the patient becomes dizzy, they can quickly be moved back into bed without manual lifting.

When a patient needs to be mobilised the Guldmann Active Trainer Sling will ensure safety at all stages. Having the Active Trainer Sling in a ceiling hoist can make balance training safer for the carer as well as the patient. It is possible for the patient to get full weight bearing – making them feel secure and also allowing them to move about without falling.

The staff can help and supervise without any risk of spinal injury caused by sudden falls or loss of balance.



The delivery of care in rehabilitation presents challenges to the direct health care provider who must compensate for mobility and self-care deficit.

Patient-handling tasks such as transfers, positioning, lifting, ambulation, and activities of daily living are therapeutically aimed to increase endurance, make joints less stiff, strengthen muscles, reduce pain, and improve coordination and balance.
