Mobility-promoting care intervention

In the Valens Clinic, the patients specifically have their movement promoted, thanks to the care team's development of mobility-promoting care intervention. Patients are treated on the floor in a mattress warehouse. They go from lying to sitting/standing and vice versa, several times a day. In this way they learn and integrate individual movement patterns and possibilities. In clinical practice, intervention promises a positive effect on these people's movement abilities, orientation and perception; and ultimately on the quality of their life as well.
