This study randomised patients after admission for heart disease in London or Ottawa to a usual care group (which got only advice from their cardiologist) and an intervention (CardioFit). The CardioFit intervention consisted of a personally tailored physical activity plan, several online tutorials, and a secure website for activity planning and tracking. Pedometers were used to track physical activity, and feedback was given by exercise specialists.
The results of the trial are encouraging: as compared to the usual care group, the intervention group increased significantly their physical activity by approximately 10%, with positive results on heart related quality of life.
The next step is testing if an automatic feedback by a computer program could have the same results…
