Customising exercise prescription for your medical condition

With medical costs rising, and reimbursement falling, the "sick care" model is broken. Over the next 20 years artificial intelligence, robotics and technological advances will change our lifestyle dramatically. This will culminate in an increase in recreational time, which in turn will result in a dramatic increase in hypokinetic diseases.

There is a need for a multidisciplinary medical and exercise hub, such as Medicise, that deals primarily with the basic elements of "preventive medicine" (health maintenance) and final phase rehabilitation. The subdivisions of sports medicine must accept responsibility of providing safe exercise programs for rehabilitation and health maintenance for society as a whole. The final result will be a reduction in health care spending on the major drain, hospitalisation.

"If we could give every individual the right amount of nourishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health" - Hippocrates (460 BC)

At Medicise, activity becomes a very important part of value-based activity living

BLOOD AND BODY FLUIDS

"The function of the individual cells within the body is dependent on the constancy of their internal and surrounding environment"

CIRCULATION

"A scientific discussion of the oxygen-transporting during muscular activity reveals that a regulation of the circulation at rest and during sub maximal exercise is not guided only by the metabolic rate; various other factors may influence the circulatory response to exercise"

RESPIRATION

"The living cell uses oxygen for its metabolism, in the course of which carbon dioxide is produced"

SKELETAL SYSTEM

"It is the supporting framework which prevents the entire body from collapsing into a heap of soft tissue; it is the protecting shell or casing for such vital, viable organs as the brain, lungs, heart, and pelvic organs; and it contains within its structures the factories for formed elements of the blood"

MUSCULAR MASS INVOLVED IN EXERCISE

"The demand on the oxygen-transporting functions varies with the size of the active muscles"

PHYSICAL TRAINING

"It may not be quite fair, but it is nevertheless a fact that the 'choice of parents' is important for progress"

ENERGY COST OF VARIOUS ACTIVITIES

"Precise information pertaining to the energy cost of different kinds of physical work is essential as a basis for an intelligent and fair administration of any rationing program in case of war or other emergencies"

TEMPERATURE REGULATION

"Changes in body temperature affect cellular structures, enzyme systems, and numerous chemical reactions and physical processes that take place in the body"
