Abstract

The conventional patient education model for heart failure patients assumes that increasing knowledge leads to self-management behaviour changes, but patients need motivation for changing their behaviour. Telerehabilitation technologies can provide a digital toolbox for engaging in self-management, and adding gamification on top may increase motivation to improve the telerehabilitation experience. This paper analyses how adaptive gamification can promote long-term motivation in a telerehabilitation program and discusses design opportunities and challenges within an adaptive approach within patient education of heart failure patients.
