Previously, the advice to patients with heart problems was to rest. Today, there is sufficient evidence that a lack of physical exercise doubles the risk of heart disease. It appears that a more active lifestyle reduces the risk of heart disease.

We teach you what exercises are best for your condition. You can train as a group or individually, always under the guidance of a qualified physiotherapist. The rehabilitation is aimed to help remove the fear of an active exercise regime, and improve your quality of life.

In Medifit, patients can enjoy a state of the art cardiac rehabilitation program under supervision of the cardiologist Dr. J. Braat.

After coronary angioplasty or bypass surgery you can recuperate physically and mentally with specially trained physiotherapists. The whole program is designed and supervised by me and is written according to the guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology. In order to be able to help as many people as possible we also created special programs for those with Angina Pectoris, Heart failure, poor exercise tolerance and those with overweight or hypertension.

All patients (and their families) who suffered a myocardial infarction or had a defibrillator implanted are also offered psychiatric counselling. If requested a dietician can offer advice towards losing weight in a healthy way.
