Research summary:  My research is on a project called mPATHway. The project is designed to utilize the expertise in a community-based medical exercise programme, called MedEx, and the Insight Centre for Data Analytics, to allow people with cardiovascular disease to participate in an exercise-based rehabilitation programme remotely, through a specially designed Android App called MedFit. MedFit offers the potential to make exercise-based rehabilitation programmes more effective by making them more accessible, more personalised and more interactive, by providing real-time support and feedback for participants.
