mHealth Interventions for Exercise and Risk Factor Modification in Cardiovascular Disease

Exerc Sport Sci Rev. 2019 Apr;47(2):86-90. doi: 10.1249/JES.0000000000000185.


Exercise and lifestyle risk factor management are critical for the secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease but are poorly adhered to. Mobile health interventions could enhance engagement; however, a one-size intervention approach cannot meet the needs of all people. We hypothesize a unifying digital platform that enables choice from a suite of evidence-based programs will enhance access, delivery, and engagement.
