About me+™ Recovery Series
The me+™ recovery series, provides information and support about the importance of movement and physical activity after ostomy surgery.
Many patients are worried about harming themselves by doing physical activity, when in fact there are so many benefits to being active. To address this, we developed the me+ recovery series which is based-on gentle movements - guiding users through their recovery after ostomy surgery and beyond.
The me+ recovery series provides patients important information on:
- Lifting and moving safely
- Strengthening the pelvic floor
- A 3-phase core and abdominal series.
The me+™ recovery series consists a host of materials including: three phases of recovery handbooks with a progression of gentle movements and a complementary collection of videos.
As part of the me+ program, ConvaTec offers a movement and recovery series designed to help guide your patients through their recovery after ostomy surgery and improve long term success.
