In this paper, is presented a pilot clinical study of a monitoring system designed for cardiac rehabilitation (CR). The system allows measuring three main metrics: cardiovascular, spatiotemporal gait and difficulty in physical activity parameters. In this study, the sensor interface was used with two volunteer patients from the phase II of CR. During the experiment, the monitoring system was used to report the parameters and store the information from the patients without interrupting the session. It was found that there is no difference between the data from the interface and the measurements that are normally taken by physiatrists. Additionally, the system allows the continuous measurement and visualization of the status of the patient, which might prove useful for physiatrists. This work presents an exploratory experiment for an on-line assessment method for CR sessions, which in turn, opens the possibility of implementing different biofeedback methods to improve the rehabilitation effects of CR.
