We conducted a pre-post pilot study to assess the feasibility of using an arts-based interactive exercise technology (app on a tablet and wearable sensors) to support in-home exercise for older adults. We recruited 22 participants; 16 (72.7%) were retained. Physiotherapists and participants reported that individualized, embedded exercise demonstrations facilitated exercise participation, while technological glitches and wearable sensor design were barriers.
