Advanced telerehabilitation for stable COPD

How effective is it compared to other therapy modalities?

People with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are frequently physically inactive, which leads to muscle deconditioning, worsening breathlessness and reduced quality of life. Exercise training helps to interrupt this downward spiral.

Many people with COPD undertake their exercise programmes at home, with occasional input from a physiotherapist or another healthcare professional. This contact often takes the form of a weekly phonecall to discuss issues and to progress exercise intensity.
