The AbdMoRe project (2016 - 2020)

The AbdMoRe project will evaluate if enhanced mobilisation after surgery using innovative digital methods at the hospital and a new model for physical rehabilitation in the primary care can lead to decreased frequency of readmission to hospital due to less postoperative complications in patients that have undergone major abdominal surgery due to cancer.

This project is part of a larger project ”Early up and Go” with the overall aim to evaluate if very early and structured mobilisation and rehabilitation can improve respiratory and physical function and thereby reduce complications and enhance recovery after abdominal surgery due to cancer. A further aim is to improve methods for mobilisation at the ward by the use of feedback and wearable sensors.
