The baseline capacity is mainly assessed on the basis of the 6-minute walk test, which is done on the day you enrol into the program. If required, you will be given exercises with supplemental oxygen.
  • Strength training helps to build up muscle strength of various muscle groups in the body. This is done with the help of different weight cuffs, dumbbells, elastic therabands and pneumatic machines.
  • Breathing exercises are a part of the warm up and cool down exercises. This is to improve your overall lung capacity. It is of prime focus in all-pulmonary patients.
  • Your oxygen saturation will be continuously monitored while you are exercising. In addition, the therapist will also timely assess your blood pressure, heart rate, and exertion levels.
  • Yoga, in the form of various flexibility, breathing exercises and meditation provides relaxation, which will help you deal with the stress and improve your mental and spiritual well-being.
