Exercise prescription in everyday practice & rehabilitation training

Exercise-based rehabilitation is of significant importance to patients with cardiovascular disease or at risk:

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


The EXPERT tool offers digital, interactive decision support tool 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 Google Chrome (it is not compatible with Internet Explorer)

Training centre

Keep your exercise prescription skills sharp by completing the training cases you can find in the EXPERT tool. There are 64 cases of patients with CVD with different levels of complexity. Compare your recommendation for these cases with the ones generated by the EXPERT tool, and thus, stay up-to-date with the latest EAPC recommendations.
