[Evidence Summary] Technologies, such as smartwatches or smartphones, may improve behavioural and health outcomes among those living with cardiovascular disease
Are digital strategies effective in changing behaviours and reducing risk factors in people living with cardiovascular disease (CVD)?
Lifestyle risk factors, such as diet, physical inactivity, smoking, and obesity account for approximately 50% of CVD cases. There are a growing number of digital strategies aiming to help people with and without chronic diseases improve their health and make behavioural changes. Although these strategies appear promising, summarized evidence on their effectiveness in changing behaviour and improving outcomes in individuals with CVD is lacking.
