What is it?
The Telehealth Exercise programs for cancer patients designed by the Kaden Centre are personalised, targeted exercise programs designed by allied health professionals – physiotherapists and exercise physiologists – grounded in medical research.
Who’s it for?
The exercise programs are designed specifically for those with, or recovering, from cancer or chronic disease. The affordable and flexible model is perfect for clients at any stage of their conditions.
Backed By Medical Research
Regular exercise after cancer diagnosis will increase survival rates by 30-60%, with the strongest effects for breast, colorectal and prostate cancers.
Emerging evidence highlights that regular exercise before, during and/or following cancer treatment decreases other adverse side effects and is associated with reduced risk of developing new cancers and comorbid conditions. To maximise safety and therapeutic effect, exercise should be prescribed and delivered under the direction of an Accredited Exercise Physiologist or Physiotherapist with a focus on transitioning to ongoing self-managed exercise

Loved by people just like you.
I would like to thank you for suggesting, creating and sending out my home exercise programme.
The format is great. The illustrations and instructions are clear, concise and easily followed. The exercises are specific to my needs and ability and at the same time still challenging. I know that any concerns I may have can be talked about during the weekly telephone follow up. Just like we do at the gym!
I do not have any exercise equipment at home, so this programme plus walking should keep the effects of the muffins at bay!
I loved the fact that the home program was designed and tailored to me. It took into account my medical history, my fitness level and even the fitness equipment I had at home. Once I started, I found it challenging and achievable, building my fitness at a steady and enjoyable pace.
