The major cardiorespiratory diseases include high blood pressure, stroke, heart failure and all the pathologies linked to the heart’s functions. A sedentary lifestyle may increase the occurrence of these diseases, while monitored aerobic exercise constitutes some protection and rehabilitation in helping to prevent relapses. Technogym offers doctors a range of equipment and solutions that help patients maintain a healthy lifestyle, or restore their functions following heart failure.
Our recommended solutions
When treating patients with heart diseases, it’s best to select equipment that guarantees safe training, coupled with tools which will constantly monitor the disorders of the heart.
Constant monitoring and control of patients
The mywellness® key is a portable device to be worn by the patient so that you can monitor his/her progress at a distance. It also records all physical activities performed during the day.
Besides performing a preliminary analysis of the patient’s physical condition, Run MED enables you to constantly monitor the patient’s training, as it is compatible with the electrocardiogram machine and the gas analyser. Plus Run MED can be controlled directly from the ECG software that adjust the speed and slope during the exercise.
During an unmonitored training phase, your patient can use equipment that requires greater muscle involvement, such as Synchro MD and Jog Now MD. Thanks to the CPR programme, coupled with a telemetric chest strap, you can choose safe training exercises such as constant heart rate exercises.
Scientific studies have demonstrated the benefits of strength training in cardiac rehabilitation. Exercises on Leg Press Inclusive and Chest Press Inclusive help to strengthen muscles and enable the person suffering from heart failure to resume daily activities in less time.
