Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease And Home Rehabilitation - The Mobile Phone's Crucial Role"We are seeing benefits on the same scale as those obtained by hospital programmes with good patient compliance", notes Dr Kuo. He believes a number of factors explain the success of the mobile phone coaching.
Firstly, walking speed is very precisely controlled by the rhythm of the music, which is set individually to an endurance level appropriate to each subject (too high a level would be harmful). The device records the daily duration of exercise, which gives a good indication of the patient's general state. Sudden changes in duration can be seen by the doctor, who can intervene quickly to prevent deterioration in the patient's condition. And the system's simplicity in itself ensures long-term compliance and, thus, continuing benefits. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/119350.php
