Our 8 week Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation program at latitude 33.7 Physiotherapy are gym-based programs using our cardiac equipment and light weights.
The classes are aimed for those who have long term cardiopulmonary problems or who have recently had a cardiac or pulmonary event. A individualised exercise program is created for each participant that takes into account their initial assessment findings and their goals. The classes run for 55 minutes and comprise of a mixture of full to partial weight bearing exercises. Clients who are eligible need to be have signed off by their GP to ensure they are safe to begin exercising.
New clients will require a 30minute physical assessment prior to commencement. The program will be reviewed initially at 4 weeks and then at 8 weeks we perform a discharge assessment to decide how to sustain the goals achieved during our program for the long term.
