In this viewpoint, we discuss the many reasons why patients may not adhere to a prescribed exercise program and explore how connected health technologies have the ability to offer numerous interventions to enhance adherence; however, it is hard to judge the efficacy of these interventions without a robust measurement tool. We highlight how well-designed connected health technologies, such as the use of mobile devices, including mobile phones and tablets, as well as inertial measurement units, provide us with the opportunity to better support the patient and clinician, with a data-driven approach that incorporates features designed to increase adherence to exercise such as coaching, self-monitoring and education, as well as remotely monitor adherence rates more objectively.||Funding Details:||European Commission Horizon 2020||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||JMIR||Journal:||Journal of Medical Internet Research||Volume:||6||Issue:||3||Start page:||e47||Copyright (published version):||2017 the Authors||Keywords:||Patient compliance; Rehabilitation; Exercise therapy; Biomedical technology; Review||DOI:||10.2196/mhealth.8518||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
