Medical - Medical (general) / Swiss patient report
German term or phrase: AUF
This appears on a patient report from a Swiss hospital. We have:

Abklärung:
Diagnose: Ausriss M. rectus femoris
AUF: 100% von.... bis..... (no entries)
Therapie:
etc.

Since it's capitalized, I'm wondering if it's an acronym for something or if it simply means that the patient is "up and around," as opposed to being bedridden.
