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.
