Physical exercise training appears effective for low to moderate patients assigned to cardiac
rehabilitation. However, adherence to cardiac rehabilitation is low and physical activity
levels often drop after attending the last supervised rehabilitation session.
This study will compare home based physical exercise training including telemonitoring with
regular centre based physical exercise training. Main outcome measures are the change in
physical activity and the change in physical fitness (peak Oxygen uptake) after the initial
rehabilitation period (12 weeks) and after 1 year. Secondary outcome measures are
cost-effectiveness, training adherence, health-related quality of life and patient
