Pilot Testing of a Computer-Aided Prevention System (CAPSYS) - Study Protocol of a Randomized Controlled Trial

Lübomira Spassova, Norbert Rösch, Debora Vittore, Dirk W. Droste

Abstract

The CAPSYS system enables automated lifestyle coaching for CVD patients through a phone-based interface with the aim of establishing a healthy behavior by reducing specific risk factors. This paper presents the procedure of a randomized controlled trial currently performed to evaluate the CAPSYS prevention approach in terms of efficacy and usability.
