Researchers seek participants for cardiac rehabilitation study

A group of students in the doctor of physical therapy program at Wichita State University is looking for participants for a study on motivational factors and barriers that alter exercise adherence in an unmonitored independent cardiac rehabilitation program. The study will add to current research to help better understand the different motivational factors or barriers that affect adherence to an exercise program in the cardiac rehabilitation population, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

If you qualify for this research and would be willing to participate, please fill out the screening survey below to ensure all criteria for our research is met. During the study, researchers will monitor the quality of your exercise for a duration of eight weeks via self assessment surveys. Upon completion, you will be asked to complete an exit interview lasting no more than 30 minutes to discuss motivating factors or barriers that you experienced during your program. If you do not qualify, please feel free to share this email with anyone you know that would be willing to volunteer.

Your participation is greatly appreciated, voluntary, and your responses will remain confidential. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email Kayela Schoenthaler at
