About

The pilot study will investigate the usability of a mobile cycling application in a cardiac patient population during a one month study period. The application's effectiveness regarding ability to reduce fear and increase motivation to exercise will be assessed.

Full description

This pilot study investigates the use of a mobile cycling application for patients with a cardiac disease that was developed by the Expertise Centre for Digital Media of Hasselt University in collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine & Life Sciences of Hasselt University. During the pilot study, the use of the cycling application and its impact on fear and motivation of patients with a cardiac disease during the rehabilitation is studied. The cycling application will be used on a smartphone, in combination with a wrist-worn heart rate monitor. During the study, the patients will use the cycling application for one month, in which they can make use of the cycling application each time they are cycling outdoor in their home environment. Through questionnaires and interviews, the patients' experiences with respect to fear and motivation will be collected. Furthermore, the usability of the cycling application is evaluated through these questionnaires and interviews.
