Our programme is designed to help individuals improve their quality of life and reach their full potential. Our programme runs from 6-10 weeks. During the first session your physiotherapist will assess your exercise capacity and strength, set meaningful goals and plan a programme that suits your lifestyle and current level of fitness. Your exercise programme will include resistance training, aerobic exercises and flexibility. Other components such as education, breathing control, airway clearance, nutrition and home exercise programme will form part of the programme. At each session, you’ll spend about half the time on physical exercise. This will be designed to provide the right level of activity for you. You’ll get out of breath, but this is part of the therapy. You’ll always be monitored and won’t be asked to do more than you can do safely. We offer services to all Lung Transplant candidates and recipients. It is of utmost importance that all lung transplants receive rehabilitation before and after their lung transplants. Rehabilitation prior to lung transplants focuses on optimising lower limb strength and functional status. After lung transplantation, rehabilitation focuses on retraining normal breathing patterns and strengthening recipients to the level that the recipient can live a fully active life with no or minimal active limitations.
Using various monitors, your physiotherapist will assess you and specialise a training programme that is safe and effective for you.
Your physiotherapist will supervise your training 2-3 per week and train you to exercise independently once discharged from the programme
Your physiotherapist will educate you about your condition, how to safely exercise at home and design a programme thats personalised to your needs
