Who We Are
First Hand Experience
Our Origin Story
Amy Livengood is a nurse that experienced firsthand the frustrations associated with the lack of time and extra staff required to safely mobilize a patient with multiple medical devices. Being convinced, however, that early mobilization leads to better patient outcomes, Amy and Joe Livengood, MD, decided to design a practical solution geared towards making the whole process easier and safer for both the patient and their attending medical staff. Working with a team, they engineered a device that simplifies the process of patient mobilization. Their vision was to empower patients to walk and take their vital equipment with them rather than be confined to their hospital bed because of their equipment.
Originally branded the PACE, the LIVENGOOD mobi patient mobility system has been improved from numerous design revisions sparked by feedback from nurses, physical therapists, doctors, and most importantly patients. The mobi patient mobility system is a patient-centric mobile headwall (equipment consolidator) that promotes early patient mobility. The system allows all equipment, gasses, medicines and supplies to travel with the patient as they ambulate. The mobi patient mobility system provides a better way for hospitals and caregivers to speed recovery time for patients while increasing service capacity up to 30%. The mobi patient mobility system provides Hope for the Healing through safe early patient mobility.
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.”
“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.”
“We are so excited that the mobi helped us ambulate our very first vented patient.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Mobility is Life, the mobi platform will help patients move again.”
“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.”
“We walked a vented patient with the mobi and it was awesome! This helped her physically and emotionally.”
“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.”
