The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is an important part of healthcare in Europe. The vulnerable patients admitted in ICUs require intensive care to survive. Early mobilization is crucial for these patients because it contributes to improve and maintain their physical capacity.
In October 2020, SilverFit, Erasmus MC, the Gelre Hospitals Foundation and technical partner Cogvis from Austria, started the two-year IC-MOVE project to develop an innovative system with digital exercises in the form of games, with the aim to support early mobilization in intensive care.
SilverFit and Cogvis are responsible for the technical development of the IC-MOVE system and will work closely with ICU-specialists from Erasmus MC and the Gelre Hospitals Foundation.
The IC-MOVE system can support both patients and healthcare professionals in the early mobilization process. In addition, the IC-MOVE project will facilitate the involvement of the immediate family of ICU patients to enable an increase in exercise frequency and helping in the recovery of the patient.
The project is funded by Eurostars and co-funded by EUREKA member countries and the European Union Horizon 2020 Framework Programme.
