Investigating KardioPAC Mobile App to Improve Physical Fitness Among Cardiac Rehabilitation Patients
Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only
The purpose of this study is to sustain regular physical activity, improve health-related quality of life, improve resting blood pressure, improve anthropometrics, and improve adherence to prescribed cardiac rehabilitation sessions among individuals referred for cardiac rehabilitation (CR). Numerous studies show that CR improves clinical outcomes in cardiovascular disease (CVD). Exercise as a reliable adjunctive intervention, however, remains limited due to poor short- and long-term adherence. This proposed study will examine the effectiveness of the Kura Care KardioPac digital application plus CR to significantly sustain exercise adherence among CR patients, as compared to standard of care alone.
