St. John of God Subiaco Hospital and SportsMed Subiaco have come together to create a safe and effective Cardiac Rehabilitation Pathway for individuals who have experienced a cardiac event or undergone cardiovascular surgery. This 6 week program is designed to reduce your risk of further cardiac issues while improving your fitness and overall quality of life.
After an individual assessment to determine your suitability for this program you will be placed into a group of 6 to 8 participants who will meet twice a week under the supervision of a physiotherapist experienced in cardiovascular rehabilitation.
During this program the patient will be coached, monitored and encouraged to continue their exercise when they are at home. Each patient will have the training program tailored to their specific needs and goals.
