The Symposium will be structured in three sections with three different speakers: Dr. Kathrin H. Smith, past president of ACSM and founder of the “Moving Through Cancer” initiative talking about the impacts of exercise for cancer treatment. Dr. Quin Pauly, Chief Medical Officer of Switch, talking about the GP perspective in delivering and prescribing exercise for cancer patients and Dr. Silvano Zanuso, Technogym Scientific Director who will show some examples from Around the World in Exercise Cancer Therapy using Technogym products.

Recently Technogym focused on the effectiveness of exercise in the different phases of treatment: before, during, and after. Among the numerous solutions for combining exercise with cancer treatment, Biocircuit is particularly suitable because, thanks to its digital technology and automation, it allows each user to perform exactly the type of exercise prescribed. With Biocircuit, the clinician can dose both the mode and intensity of the load with extreme precision thanks to a highly technological load generation system called Biodrive.

Since 2010 the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and Technogym have joined forces in the global health initiative, Exercise is Medicine (EIM), to encourage health care providers to include exercise in patients’ treatment plans. Both Technogym and ACSM are committed to the promotion of physical activity as integral to the prevention and treatment of chronic diseases.
