Abstract [sv]

Kronisk obstruktiv lungsjukdom (KOL) leder till att lungornassyreupptagningsförmåga minskar och vanliga symtom är hosta och andnöd vidansträngning. Diagnostisering av KOL baseras på spirometri, menbehandlingsåtgärder bör utgå ifrån patientens fysiska förmåga och detta gerspirometri inte ett mått på. Det här examensarbetet har gått ut på att, utifrån enbefintlig step–test applikation som medicinsk teknik, forskning och utveckling harutvecklat, skapa en applikation som gör det möjligt att uppskatta KOL – patientersfysiska förmåga. Applikationen möjliggör test hemifrån vilket gör att patienternaslipper återkommande sjukhusbesök och den kan också komma fungera sommotivation för patienterna till att öka sin aktivitetsnivå. Applikationen kommer atttestas och utvärderas kliniskt.

Abstract [en]

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) leads to a limitation of the flow of airto and from the lungs. Common symptoms of COPD are shortness of breath andchronic cough. Diagnosis of COPD is based on spirometry but treatment of COPDshould be based on the patients exercise capacity which spirometry correlates poorlywith. The aim of this project has been, that of an existing step test -application, developan application that makes it possible assess exercise capacity in patients withCOPD. The application enables testing away from hospitals and it may serve as motivationfor the patients to increase their physical activity.
