Dedicated Treatment at Home

Virtual Cardiac Rehab

What is Virtual Cardiac Rehab?

You want to live a long life and stay as healthy as possible. If you have had a heart attack or suffer from cardiac problems, staying healthy is critically important. Unfortunately, because of our busy schedules and lack of resources, such as time and money, it's hard to visit the gym every day to do exercise or attend regular rehabilitation sessions at a hospital or another clinic.

This is where virtual cardiac rehab (VCR) comes in: Hela makes cardiac rehab easily accessible so you can attend sessions regularly and take care of your heart health.

What Does Virtual Rehab Look Like?

Hela is an Online Treatment Option that Works

You interact with real people and professionals who guide you through an immersive, virtual environment. The platform is accessible from any device, and Hela tailors the cardiac rehab exercises to your specific condition.

Some people may not engage physically with others due to age, illness, disability, or simply lack the desire to do so. Hela has found that this technology gives people who otherwise would not have been able to access care at all the chance to improve their physical and mental health and wellbeing by practicing exercises in a virtual community.

Advantages of Our App

  • We offer physiotherapy in online groups of eight people to increase adherence to the program by offering you peer support.

  • These groups are live-streamed and not prerecorded to increase your sense of belonging and engagement during class.

  • We encourage your community engagement with discussion boards, group messaging, and direct messaging, all of which decrease depression and increase accountability among participants.

  • Medical Influencers post brief video clips daily to give health tips and encouragement to you.

  • We have an easy-to-understand Hela Health Insights Scorecard that uses visual illustrations to communicate your current health.

  • We have an outstanding buddy system so you can invite loved ones and your volunteer support system to take part in weekly calls and discussions.

How to Get Started?

It’s easy to get started as a patient on the Hela app. All you need is your healthcare provider's permission. Then, enter your basic information and answer questions about yourself.
