published on: 15.12.09
The Velo is a perfect upgrade of the well-known ComfortLine therapy chair. It offers the possibility for the patients to be active during dialysis. The Velo can be mounted very fast and easily because of the unique interface.
Many studies have shown that exercise before, during or after dialysis is very helpful for a good mood and physical condition of patients. The trai¬ning has a positive influence on the cardiovascular regulation (blood pressure and heart frequency) which can reduce the number of medicine for patients. Also a positive influence on the patient’s psyche has been observed during various studies.
