Personalized Music During Exercise Sessions Increase Cardiac Rehab by 70%

Listening to personalized music playlist with temp-pace synchronization during workout can significantly help patients adhere to cardiac rehabilitation by 70 percent, says a new study.

In a study conducted by University Health Network, each subject was given a personalized playlist, which was of the music genre they enjoyed with tempos that matched their per-determined walking or running pace.


According to a senior scientist, Dr. David Alter, cardiac rehab has been proven to improve long-term survival for someone who had a heart event by 20 per cent.

Dr. Alter said that the music tempo-pace synchronization helps cue the person to take their next step or stride and helps regulate, maintain and reinforce their prescribed exercise pace.

He added that if this average increase of exercise was sustained for an average 65-year-old male patient, it would correlate with a projected life-expectancy increase of two and a half years.

The study is published in Sports Medicine-Open.
