The Background

The Forum and Workshop „Cardiac Rehabilitation Center“ introduces the cardiac rehabilitation treatment concept as an essential part of modern, ICF based rehabilitation treatment programs (ICF: International classification of functioning, disability and health. WHO 2001).

Cardiac rehabilitation developed steadily in the Western countries and already there is a common understanding about a standard treatment concept. Cardiac rehabilitation follows a phase-model: The rehabilitation starts at in hospital stage and is continued immediately after the release from the hospital as an inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation treatment in specialized cardiac rehab clinics. After the first 2 rehabilitation phases done in the clinic environment, Phase 3 focuses on a lifelong secondary prevention program in outpatient heart sport groups at home - focusing mainly on exercise therapy/MTT treatment to maintain the physical condition.

Main target of cardiac rehabilitation is - in accordance with the ICF concept -  to restore impaired body structures and functions and overcome limitations in regards of Activity and Participation of the patient.
The multidimensional rehabilitation concept for cardiac patients consists of somatic, educative, psychological and social components. Training and physical exercising to improve and maintain the cardiovascular capability plays the major role within Phase 2 and 3 of cardiac rehabilitation.
