We look after your recovery through supervised and carefully monitored exercise programmes.
At iMude, our qualified Biokineticists will assist you in your cardiac rehabilitation needs. Exercise forms part of a cardiac rehabilitation programme whether it is for the prevention or recovery thereof.
We are an outpatient facility where we form part of your multidisciplinary team getting you back on your feet – basically, we take care of your exercise needs and fitness requirements.
After you received the go ahead from your Cardiologist/Specialist/Doctor, we will design a programme for you and supervise you all the way during this programme. Cardiac programmes usually stretches over a 12-week period.
At your first visit we will take an in-depth history of your condition, medication, training routines and goals. This is followed by a very easy physical assessment including blood pressure, heart rate, a posture assessment, flexibility tests and some basic functional tests.
Possible tests include a 12-lead advanced ECG test (this is where we connect some wires to your chest and you do a submaximal test – this gives us an indication of your heart activities), spirometer and oxygen tests, cholesterol and blood glucose test and body fat percentage distribution throughout your body. The data from our very comprehensive questionnaires and tests then helps us to determine your starting point and end goals.
During workouts our patients will be monitored with hear rate monitors, blood pressure readings, ECG and O2 and lung function testing (randomly)
Our facility has back up emergency services available and we are in contact with various Cardiologists/Specialists/Doctors that supports our facility.
