Concept 2 roweringMon, 06/27/2022 - 12:43PM
7I am a 70 yr old male almost eight weeks post surgery (HeartMate 3) and starting to exercise. Previous to my surgery I exercised with a Concept 2 rowing machine a few times a week, interspersed with treadmill and weights. In cardio rehab we are using free weights and treadmill/bicycling/recumbent steppers almost exclusively.
I really enjoyed rowing, and no one seems to have any information regarding LVAD patients using a rowing machine. Does anyone have any experience or advice for this activity for LVAD patients?
