This trial will investigate whether using reminder alarms with a wireless activity tracking device (Fitbit) will increase daily ambulation in individuals who have just had colorectal surge...
Extramammary Paget's disease (EMPD) is a rare cutaneous malignancy that mainly affects the senior population. There is a relatively high risk of postoperative complications from surgery in the senior ...
Our institution implemented a protocol known as thoracic enhanced recovery with ambulation after surgery (T-ERAS) in thoracic operations. The objective was early ambulation starting in the postoperati...
Ambulation while on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is critical to facilitate native pulmonary recovery for patients with acute respiratory failure and is a prerequisite for listing for lun...
This randomized controlled study investigated the feasibility of early ambulation after liver resection and the effect of the amount of activity on postoperative recovery.

Procedure to accelerate the ability of a patient to walk or move about by reducing the time to AMBULATION. It is characterized by a shorter period of hospitalization or recumbency than is normally practiced.
Food derived from genetically modified organisms (ORGANISMS, GENETICALLY MODIFIED).
Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.
A dominantly inherited muscle disease that begins in early childhood and is characterized by severe myotonia (delayed relaxation of a muscle) after forceful voluntary contractions. Muscular hypertrophy is common and myotonia may impair ambulation and other movements. Myotonia typically becomes less severe with repetitive voluntary contractions of the affected muscles. Generalized myotonia (of Becker) is an autosomal recessive variant of myotonia congenita that may feature more severe myotonia and muscle wasting.
