Flagship 7: Adaptive mHealth Pulmonary Rehabilitation


This project is about the development and evaluation of a personalised adaptive mHealth programme for people with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), sometimes referred to as emphysema or chronic bronchitis. We aim to weave current best practice for pulmonary rehabilitation, wearable devices, existing data and mobile technology into an adaptive learning programme to support people with COPD. The long-term goal is a programme for COPD patients that can maximise wellbeing and reduce avoidable use of health services.
