A Technology Platform for Enabling Behavioural Change as a “PATHway” Towards Better Self-management of CVD

Abstract:


We describe a technology platform developed as part of a novel approach to technology-enabled exercise-based Cardiac Rehabilitation (CR), termed PATHway. We explain the overall concept and explain how technology can facilitate remote participation and better adherence to community-based long-term Phase III CR. The demo will showcase the user experience of interacting with the PATHway system, including navigation and manual data entry, whilst also demonstrating real-time sensing and analysis of exercise movements and automatic adaptation of exercise based on physiological response.
