Wesley Medical Research announces cardiac rehabilitation research to care for the hearts of patients on Valentine’s Day, which is also Heart Research Day.

Researchers at Wesley Medical Research are investigating better ways to improve patients’ heart health and rehabilitation this Valentine’s Day, which is also Heart Research Day.

Eligible patients at The Wesley Hospital will be given an opportunity to participate in research to help determine the feasibility, safety, adherence and efficacy of high intensity interval training in hospital-based cardiac rehabilitation.

“Our team plans to investigate whether high intensity interval training is safe and practical in our cardiac rehabilitation program and whether it leads to greater improvements in fitness, heart disease risk factors, body fat reduction, and long-term exercise adherence for our patients,” says Miss Jenna Kirchner, the research project chief investigator, who is also an exercise physiologist and sports dietitian.
