Exercise-based rehabilitation is of significant importance to patients with cardiovascular disease or those at risk for CVD. It can contribute to:

  • Better CVD risk factor control
  • Improved quality of life
  • Reductions in hospitalisation frequency
  • Cost effectiveness


The EXPERT Tool offers digital, interactive decision-support for exercise prescription. 

This pilot tool is based on the EXPERT Flowchart (EXercise Prescription in Everyday practice & Rehabilitation Training), developed by the University of Hasselt, in collaboration with the European Association of Preventive Cardiology.

This flowchart assists physicians and healthcare professionals in choosing and adopting the optimal exercise intervention in patients with various CVDs and/or a combination of risk factors.

Note: The EXPERT Tool should be used with the Google Chrome web browser (it is not compatible with Internet Explorer)
