The RehaWeb system aims at motivating heart patients in rehab with a combination of social networking features, editorial contents as well as mobile support and monitoring. Hikes on selected routes can be planned with RehaWeb community friends. A smartphone application guides the way and collects vitals. All data is transmitted to the RehaWeb server, where it can be accessed as exercise diary by the patient and medical staff. The personal progress and other topics can be discussed with other user in the forums.
