Physical activity has been shown to have multiple benefits, such as reducing mortality rate caused by cardiovascular diseases and providing an optimal health status, making it one of the most important components of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) programs. However, the adherence to the program is low, and finding strategies to motivate people to perform physical training is a priority. This work proposes the introduction of a socially assistive robotics system in order to provide monitoring and motivation to patients within a CR program. A study was carried out with one patient accompanied by the robot during a conventional phase II, namely 16 sessions of the cardiac rehabilitation program. The results show the reliability of the system to provide information to assess the patient's performance during the activity. Additionally, the patient was able to improve his posture patterns along the sessions due to the continuous monitoring provided by the robot.
