What is it?

A multidisciplinary team (physician, physical therapist, dietitian and psychologist) works with you for a period of six months to achieve a healthier life style and lower body weight.

  • The rehabilitation physician who coordinates the programme looks at the data that were provided by the referring physician. They will request further tests if required to guarantee a safe start of the programme. The rehabilitation physician will continue to coordinate the medical supervision throughout the entire programme.
  • Under supervision of an experienced physical therapist, you will train at a safe pulse rate. Heart rate monitors are available for use during the exercises. Exercises are done in a group, in a pleasant atmosphere, where there is an opportunity to exchange tips as well. Twice a week you will be doing your utmost.
  • Through the updated food pyramid, you will learn, in collaboration with the dietitian, how to make responsible choices when composing your meals. The programme consists of four individual consultations and two group sessions.
  • Two information group sessions under the supervision of a psychologist are included. These will look at, among others, behavioural change, motivation and types of eating behaviours.

You can find all the information in the leaflet at the bottom of the page.
