Overview

KARD training program was developed for long-term training for competitive athletes, leisure time activities and also for patients. The training program has been based on results acquired from bicycle or treadmill ergometer. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing analysis allows to diagnose of training or rehabilitation effects. On the basis of testing results the program enables selecting alternatives of long-term physical activity that optimally suits each individual. The program is able to set the type, intensity, duration and frequency of the exercise units. The physician can modify the program which is important for patients especially. On the result of the stress test cardiopulmonary examination and physician recommendation the patient can do physical activity in home, without physician supervision, e.g. only heart rate measuring is used.
