Efficacy of a technology-enabled, home-based cardiac rehabilitation program
Refereed Original Article
Despite strong evidence for cardiac rehabilitation (CR) in secondary prevention of CVD, uptake rates are poor and long-term adherence rates are low. Home-based, technology enabled, CR has been advocated as an alternative mode of delivery for community-based CR. PATHway (Physical Activity Towards Health) is an individualized, home-based CR program involving an internet-enabled, sensor-based platform1. This multicenter study assessed the impact of PATHway on physical activity (PA) levels, body composition, blood pressure (BP), vascular health and selected maximal and submaximal fitness indices in patients with CVD.
