- Description: Early Mobilisation routines aim at improving the recovery process of critically ill patients that are hospitalised in intensive care units. Such routines consist of passive and active progressive mobilisations aiming at reducing the side-effects derived from ICU stays. In this paper, we present e-PEMICU, an e-health platform to support early mobilisation programmes in intensive care units. Our solution is founded on motion sensors and smartphones, hence, it is affordable and easy to deploy in real scenarios. We present the design and implementation of a prototype that has been created to address real users needs. Our platform paves the way for a better and sustainable application of current early mobilisation routines.
