History

Advanced Concept of Fitness Training and Rehabilitation

Hong Kong population has the second longest lifespan in the world with the life expectancy of 82.04 years. However, the incidence of degenerative diseases such as stroke, cardiovascular disease and arthritis was also significantly growing in the last decade. According to studies from American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), the degeneration of health and functional abilities is mainly related to sedentary lifestyles and lack of physical training activities (ACSM Position Stands, 2009 & 2011).

Hence, the Special Multi-functional and Advanced Rehabilitation Training Centre (SMART Centre) started operation on 1 April 2014 with the aim of promoting and enhancing the concepts of “Exercise is Medicine” and “Lifelong Investment in Health” to our community.

躍動適體及健康中心We are the first rehabilitative training centre in Hong Kong which has 11 sets of HUR professional equipment for exercise and rehabilitation. The HUR machines adapt the natural transmission resistance system (NTRS) which provides optimal loading of muscles and reduces the joint pressure and muscle soreness after training. The incremental resistance adjustment can be set as low as 0.1 kg which is mostly suitable for the population with special needs or low initial fitness level. Besides, our computerized equipment has the capacity to assess the exercise heart rate, isometric muscle strength and functional balance. The smart card system is able to record and control the exercise frequency as well as intensity which is ideal for exercise training and progression.

Detailed physical assessment by physiotherapist will be done prior to exercise training for every members and training program will be implemented based on individual needs. Our fitness instructor will guide the members and monitor the progress during exercise training sessions.

Apart from individual training, SMART Centre also provides physiotherapy services with advanced treatment equipment, health talks and variety of exercise classes which helps to develop the healthy community.
