Parents of children with Congenital Heart Defects often experience anxiety when their child participates in physical activity (PA). In some cases, this anxiety results in an overprotective attitude which can lead to the child suspending PA. This project aims to understand how to optimally support families during exercise by designing a parental supporting system that reduces anxiety and overprotective behaviour towards the child’s PA participation.
