Abstract

According to the present guidelines for heart failure patients, regular exercise training has obtained the class of recommendation I, level of evidence A. Despite the benefits of cardiac rehabilitation, many heart failure patients are inactive. Common patient’s rejection of existing forms of rehabilitation and limitations resulting from the disease itself hinder the outpatient cardiac rehabilitation. That is why home telerehabilitation seems to be the optimal form of physical activity for heart failure patients.
