In 2004 Chronic Heart Failure accounted for over 105,000 deaths in the United Kingdom. For sufferers of CHF, factors such as poor diet and lack of exercise can increase the risk of further complications.In this paper we outline the design, development and evaluation of a smartphone based activity monitor for persons with CHF. This application is a component of the SMART2 Project’s Personalised Self-Management System (PSMS). Given that exercise training has become a valid treatment modality for CHF, focusing on endurance exercises in the form of walking and cycling, the proposed application has focused on measuring walking exercises.
