Aerobic Interval Training in Cardiac Rehabilitation
Effect of High Intensity Aerobic Interval Training in Cardiac Rehabilitation

The purpose of the study is to compare home-based aerobic interval training with supervised interval training performed in groups or on a treadmill at the hospital.

Cardiac rehabilitation is usually first offered in hospitals, but there are several studies that show that home-based rehabilitation is equally efficient. How this comes out when exercise is organized as aerobic interval training is not known.

Interventional
Phase 2
Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
  • Myocardial Infarction
  • Coronary Artery Disease
Other: Exercise training
Interval training at 90% of max heart rate. Warm-up of 10-15 minutes up to 70% of HRmax, then 4 minutes of exercise at 90%. 3 minutes of active pause between the intervals. Total 45 minutes of exercise. Twice a week.
  • Active Comparator: Treadmill group
    Interval exercise performed on treadmills, supervised
    Intervention: Other: Exercise training
  • Active Comparator: Exercise groups
    Supervised and organised in groups of ten
    Intervention: Other: Exercise training
  • Active Comparator: home-based exercise
    Interval training at home, free choice of modality
    Intervention: Other: Exercise training
