Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between personal factors, health status, and adherence to physical activity behavior, and quality of life in cardiac rehabilitation participants. The record of 146 subjects, who met inclusion criteria were obtained from the University Cardiac Rehabilitation Database. Change scores in physical activity were used as a proxy for adherence. Participants who were categorized as not working, female gender, and at high-risk health status had lower means and lower improvement scores from repeated measures analysis of variance. This study found that some personal factors and health status are significant factors influencing the participant's adherence to physical activity recommendations and quality of life in this cardiac rehabilitation program.
