This study is a prospective, multi-center, randomized controlled clinical study. It developed an innovative Tai Chi Cardiac Rehabilitation Program (TCCRP) for patients with chronic coronary syndrome (CCS) and evaluated the efficacy, acceptability and safety of TCCRP on patients with CCS in order to explore the possible mechanism of its feasibility.
This study is a prospective, multi-center, randomized controlled clinical trial of 100 participants with chronic coronary syndrome (CCS) that compares Tai Chi cardiac rehabilitation program (TCCRP) with conventional exercise rehabilitation programs (CERP), with an allocation ratio of 1:1. A total of 6 months study period, including 1 month in-hospital rehabilitation, 2 months home-based rehabilitation and 3 months follow-up. The main outcome indicators were measured at baseline, 1 month, 3 months and 6 months. The secondary outcome measures will be measured at baseline and at 3 months.
|Active Comparator: Control Group
Group received conventional exercise rehabilitation programs (CERP).
Behavioral: Control Group ：conventional exercise rehabilitation programs (CERP)
The participants in the control group will receive a conventional exercise rehabilitation programs (CERP) thrice a week for 12 weeks. Each training session lasts for 60 minutes, including ordinary warm-up exercises (10 minutes), aerobic activity (30 minutes), resistive exercise (10 minutes), and cool-down exercises(10 minutes). Each training session includes:(1) an active warm-up including arm-swinging, gentle stretches of the neck, shoulders, spine, arms, legs and so on;(2) aerobic activity mainly including aerobic radio exercise;(3) resistive exercise mainly including elastic belt exercise;(4) cool-down session involving active and static stretching exercises with primary body movements.
|Experimental: Experimental Group
Group received Tai Chi cardiac rehabilitation program(TCCRP).
Behavioral: Experimental Group ：Tai Chi cardiac rehabilitation program (TCCRP)
Participants perform Tai Chi cardiac rehabilitation program(TCCRP) thrice a week for 12 weeks. Each training session lasts for 60 minutes, including Tai Chi warm-up exercises(10 minutes), Bafa Wubu of Tai Chi(30 minutes), Tai-Chi in conjunction with X-light-band resistance exercise(10 minutes), and Tai Chi cool-down exercises(10 minutes). All participants are encouraged to practice Tai Chi followed the instructional video until finishing 12-week exercise.
1. Male or non-pregnant women aged from 18 to 80 years;
2. Patients who met the stable angina pectoris in accordance with coronary heart disease;
3. NYHA class Ι, Π or Ш;
4. Participants were able to understand the purpose of clinical trials and voluntarily
participate and sign informed consent.
1. Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) within 2 weeks;
2. Severe aortic stenosis;
3. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy;
4. Severe valvular heart disease;
5. Malignant tachyarrhythmia;
6. The patient compliance was poor and the clinical trial could not be completed
according to the requirements.
7. Combined exercise can cause deterioration of the nervous system, motor system disease,
or rheumatic disease.
8. In the past 3 months, those who regularly practice Tai Chi;
9. Patients with gastrointestinal diseases, infectious diseases, renal insufficiency, and
a history of gastrointestinal surgery within one year
