Abstract

Supervised exercise programs are an important aspect of the rehabilitation process of patients after heart surgery. A large number of factors must be taken into account before implementing a rehabilitation program. These mainly consist in the patient’s cognitive and physical capabilities after the operation and the expectations of recovery. A rehabilitation program should also be designed in relation to the stage of the healing process, with the therapist selecting the best sequence of exercises while taking into account the most appropriate effort level for the patient. This paper describes a customizable rehabilitation system for the early post-operative period, useful for the performance of an assessment of the patients, through an evaluation of their cognitive and motor abilities, and for a dynamic personalization of the therapy sessions focused on patient needs.
