Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Physical activity is a key component of primary and secondary stroke prevention. However, stroke survivors frequently do not meet physical activity guidelines, and calls have been made for the use of mobile and wireless devices, i.e., mobile health, to support participation in physical activity. The current study explores the perspectives of stroke survivors and health professionals on the use of mobile health to support engagement in physical activity.
