Cardiac Rehabilitation

Cardio training is the key part of cardiac rehabilitation in cardiovascular diseases and generally recommended as patient reconditioning during recovery after surgery and in the wide range of medical conditions

Problem

Without regular cardio training (exercise) cardiac rehabilitation may not be effective in preventing disease relapses and hospital readmissions. The generally recommended dose of exercise is 2.5 to 5 hours of moderate intensity physical activity every week. 

However, participation is generally low as only 20-30% attend the standard 12-week cardiac rehabilitation programs, whereas the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted face-to-face model of care.

Self-managed cardio training in moderate intensity such as fast walking poses risk of falls and injuries. Fatigue is another barrier to achieve sufficient dose of cardio training in aged and clinical populations.

The MedExercise-C (cardio) series of devices and corresponding exercise therapy stations

facilitate cardio training in clinically sufficient doses by making it safe, convenient, and engaging. Attaching devices to standard chairs and beds provide patients with ongoing access to safe training at their usual environments including hospital wards and homes.

 

Wireless sensors in the pedals measure 

user activity in standard 'walking' units such as numbers of step and distance. Gamification of activity such as playing active videogames 

makes exercise engaging. Remote monitoring of patient activity via online portals allows care providers to manage their patients at distance.
