Objectives The objective of this project is to motivate patients with COPD to incorporate the habit of doing daily mindful physical activity by using the proposed home-based pulmonary rehabilitation program that integrates video guided exercises, activity monitoring daily steps and health coaching. This program will allow patients to complete Pulmonary Rehabilitation (PR) at home and promote behavior change and lead to a more active lifestyle for patients with COPD who have been prescribed PR.

The program will be able to effectively monitor daily step count. A health coach will receive more this detailed data and will guide weekly health coaching sessions designed to increase awareness of the physical activities completed and ignite inner motivation for healthy behaviors.

The proposed PR program is innovative and responds to an unmet need in chronic care for COPD patients in the context of COVID-19 pandemic and it mitigates the common accessibility barriers.


Specific aims will guide the proposed project:

  • Aim 1: To determine the feasibility of the proposed home-based PR program. We will additionally address adherence and appropriateness of the program.
  • Aim 2: To determine improvements in quality of life and mental health of the proposed home-based PR determined.
  • Aim 3: To evaluate if the average number of daily step counts increase after the home-based PR program
