Expertise Centre for Digital Media (EDM) : project R-7011

Title : EXPERT tool: proof-of-concept implementation of a market exploration with an interactive tool for prescribing cardiovascular rehabilitation (R-7011)
Abstract: In the treatment of individuals with metabolic diseases (such as obesity and diabetes) and / or cardiovascular disease, physical training and rehabilitation is a cornerstone. This therapy improves the health, decreases the hospitalization frequency, and increases the lifespan and quality of life. Increasing evidence indicates that, depending on the goal that is pursued (for example, fat mass loss, lowering blood pressure, lowering cholesterol, etc.), and / or depending on the risk factors or diseases that are present, the training requirement needs to be adjusted. There are indeed separate rehabilitation / training guidelines for each risk factor and disease. However, the incidence of different risk factors and / or pathologies in one and the same individual makes it difficult to develop an appropriate training instruction: multiple training goals must, after all, be achieved in these individuals. In clinical practice it remains very complex to develop adequate training requirements for persons with metabolic and / or cardiovascular diseases.
