Abstract: Telemonitoring and tele-rehabilitation show tremendous potential to be effective approaches for secondary prevention and rehabilitation in heart patients, such as Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) patients. However, studies show a gradual decline of interest, lack of motivation and resistance to modify behavioral patterns among patients over a period of time, resulting in a lack of therapy adherence. Adopting persuasive technology in tele-rehabilitation applications contributes to solve these issues. In this paper, we highlight various theoretical frameworks related to persuasion, which aid in designing mobile applications supporting long-term behavior change and keeping patients motivated for the tele-rehabilitation program.
