Momentum: Assisting heart patients with workout intensity
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Patients that have suffered from a heart attack, has a condition called coronary artery disease. This condition is partly inherited, by lifestyle choices such as diet, smoking and exercise account for as much as 80 % of the disease progression and outcome.
Today a great majority of patients with coronary artery disease choose not to participate in an exercise-based rehabilitation programme after an event, even though exercise has shown to reduce mortality rates by more than 25 %.
What if we could encourage patients with coronary artery disease to engage in exercise-based rehabilitation treatment outside a hospital environment?
