Abstract

In heart failure, reduced physical activity level can adversely affect physical and psychosocial functioning. No previous heart failure research has compared effects of home and hospital-based exercise training upon physical activity level, or has objectively assessed their long-term effects upon physical activity. This study used an activPAL monitor to examine immediate and long-term effects of home and hospital-based aerobic exercise training upon physical activity level.
