Abstract
The peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is characterized by leg pain during walking, and a recommended treatment for this disease is to perform supervised physical activity. In this chapter, a system that monitories the physical activity containing one application for smartwatch, one application for smartphone, and a back-end webservice is presented. The applications collect heart rate, GPS locations, step count, and altitude data. The methodology used for the development of the system was based on the agile method with the production of prototypes. In this chapter, four development cycles, which cover the users' and researchers' needs, are presented. In this work, the main objective is to evaluate the current mobile technologies on the physical activity data collection and the development of a system that assists the users to maintain an active life. © 2018, IGI Global.

Abstract
In this review the objective is to search for technologies that supervise the exercise or physical activity of people suffering from Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) at home or in the community. Patients with PAD have walking limitations and their quality of life progressively deteriorates. The regular practice of exercise can help mitigate these effects and even improve their health status. The methodology used was to search for scientific articles published since 2008, with the final result of 18 articles. The results show the most frequent technologies used are based on the accelerometer device, with the tests being performed on a treadmill at a hospital. The hospital tests are expensive, so a useful and viable alternative is the usage of mobile devices to help the health professionals record the exercise performed by their patients suffering with PAD. © Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018.
