Assessing Force-velocity Profile: an Innovative Approach to Optimize Cardiac Rehabilitation in Coronary Patients

2019-09-30 07:07:09 | BioPortfolio


Cardiac rehabilitation includes aerobic and anaerobic training adapted to cardiovascular pathology for which cardiac rehabilitation is prescribed. It is essential to adapt the content of these cardiac rehabilitation sessions to optimize aerobic and anaerobic performance and quality of life. Improvement of the first ventilatory threshold is one of the main objectives since it illustrates the adaptation of the patient to submaximal exercise, typical of everyday life.

The research laboratory "Autonomous Nervous System - Epidemiology, Physiology, Engineering, Health" (SPA-EPIS) has an international expertise in training optimization in top-athletes. He have shown the importance of the relationship between the power-force-velocity profile and athletes performances.


In this sudy, each patient has a force and a velocity that can be optimized with training to achieve maximum power. This optimization can be evaluated through a force-velocity profile, measured from an only sprint on a cycloergometer.

The hypothesis that force-velocity profile could be used in cardiac rehabilitation in coronary patients to induce a force-velocity balance adapted through personalized sessions and regular medical follow-up.

This prospective, controlled, randomized and open label study will attempt to evaluate further the relevance of force or velocity training based on the initial force-velocity profile of coronary patients included in the cardiac rehabilitation program in the University Hospital of Saint-Etienne.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The length of the face determined by the distance of separation of jaws. Occlusal vertical dimension (OVD or VDO) or contact vertical dimension is the lower face height with the teeth in centric occlusion. Rest vertical dimension (VDR) is the lower face height measured from a chin point to a point just below the nose, with the mandible in rest position. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p250)
