No Capital Expense to Mobilize in the CVICU with the Livengood Subscription Program

Livengood’s “Free the CVICU” Subscription Program

Livengood Early Patient Mobility Cardiac Monitor arterial line block Pacer Catheter

Safe early patient mobility is the practice of getting patients out of bed and moving around as soon as possible after surgery or critical illness. Early ambulation of patients in the CVICU has been shown to have many benefits for patients, including:

  • Reduced risk of pressure ulcers
  • Improved respiratory function
  • Reduced muscle atrophy
  • Improved mental health
  • Reduced risk of deep vein thrombosis
  • Shorter hospital stays

Mobilizing patients leads to improved patient outcomes, improved patient satisfaction, and ambulating patients with the mobigo also leads to improved staff morale by making it easier for clinicians to implement physician-mandated mobility protocols with a significantly reduced number of staff and reduced amount of time for each ambulation.


The Capital Expense Obstacle

The data is clear. The benefits associated with the use of the mobi products for ambulating patients in the CVICU includes improved patient outcomes, reduced length of stay, greater staff efficiency and productivity, and significant cost savings. However, the biggest barrier has been the Capital Budget, as capital expenses are highly scrutinized and reserved for specialized projects.


Livengood Removes the Obstacle

Livengood can outfit all your CVICU rooms with a mobigo and all your CV-step down units with a mobilite, and there would be NO capital outlay — ZERO — on the part of your hospital.

Under Livengood’s “Free the CVICU” Subscription program:

  • There would be NO capital expense.
  • Your hospital would not own the asset.
  • Livengood would place all the units (even covering shipping) and charge a daily subscription rate of around $75 per unit for year 1 and a reduced rate for years 2-5 (expecting that your hospital can get reimbursed with other expenses as part of the patient room cost).

In addition, we encourage you to supplement any early patient mobility training that your staff may need to ambulate your patients effectively and safely. We can provide a team of mobility consultants who will train your staff in implementation of the ABCDEF bundle and early mobility practices for the range of all clinical requirements (standard CV surgery to ECMO).

If we outfit a minimum of ten CVICU rooms, then there would NOT be an additional charge for this support. It would be part of the Livengood Subscription program.

Act now and contact us to discuss how we can work together to free your CVICU and improve patient outcomes and staff satisfaction with the Livengood Subscription program.

What Customers Say


“6 months ago we implemented 12 mobis into our early mobility program. We have a very diverse population on our ICU and having the option of mobilizing them in a way that is helpful and assistive to staff while instilling confidence in the patient and family is great. We’re still working to figure out our ideal workflow but it’s given us concrete examples of how even our sicker vented patients can get mobilized safely and efficiently.”

Mark Rohlfing

“After completing a research study with the LIVENGOOD mobi on our post trauma/surgical floor, I realized its potential to decrease length of stay, help with staff efficiency and empower patients to be independent.”

Lorrie Henecke

“We are so excited that the mobi helped us ambulate our very first vented patient.”

Esther Vandermeulen
University Health System - San Antonio, TX

“The LIVENGOOD mobi is very user friendly, safe and a great solution to use minimal staff and be able to contain all of the patient’s equipment.”

Michael Saccone
Saint Joseph's Hospital - Syracuse, NY

“I think the LIVENGOOD mobi will revolutionize the way we mobilize patients in the ICU. I saw patients mobilize sooner and with less anxiety with the mobi. One young patient was even able to walk outside with the mobi and her portable vent. Having the mobi made mobility a real team effort, not just a P.T. activity.”

Terra Terwilliger
PT, DPT - Adult Inpatient Physical Therapist
Rehab Services University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview Health System

“The LIVENGOOD platform allows my patients to be active and independent without attention being diverted to multiple lines, an oxygen tank, and other medically necessary devices. It allows patients to have hope and a sense of “normalcy”, which so often is lost after trauma or surgery.”

Jessica Gilbert
Staff Physical Therapist - Medical Center of The Rockies -Loveland, CO

“Six years ago I was introduced to the LIVENGOOD mobi. This piece of equipment has been life changing for my patients. I am now able to consolidate all of the patient’s medical devices onto an easy to push mobile platform, therefore freeing up both of my hands to safely assist my patient.”

Tanya Kensley
Poudre Valley Hospital -Fort Collins, CO

“Mobility is Life, the mobi platform will help patients move again.”

Blas Villa
University Health System - San Antonio, TX

“I was at NTI in Boston (2013) and, during the exhibit portion, I wandered across the LIVENGOOD booth. At that moment, I knew our hospital needed this mobi for our open heart recovery program. I worked with a Clinical Nurse Specialist to write a grant for this product. I am so excited to bring the mobi to our program.”

Celina Adams
John C. Lincoln - Phoenix, AZ

“We walked a vented patient with the mobi and it was awesome! This helped her physically and emotionally.”

Natalie Hariel
Tulane Medical Center - New Orleans, LA

“I am a nurse in a cardiovascular ICU… Our goal for patients is to ambulate to the chair 2 hours after extubation, often the evening of surgery day. Our patients are up and walking with central venous catheters, swan ganz catheters, chest tubes, foley catheters, and with IV medications infusing. The ambulation of these patients would not be possible without the mobi walker. Every bit of equipment that these patients need can be carried on the walker while providing the stability of a standard walker… It is an essential piece of equipment for us and we couldn’t provide the care and therapies we do without it.”
