To compare the effectiveness of (1) education only (ED), 2) home exercise (HE) and 3) supervised exercise (SE) as provided in a nationally implemented rehabilitation programme (the BOA programme) for patients with hip and knee osteoarthritis (OA). In addition, we analysed whether the effect of the treatments differed based on the joint affected by OA (hip vs knee).

Exercise for patellofemoral pain (PFP) is traditionally knee focused, targeting quadriceps muscles. In recent years, hip-focused exercise has gained popularity. Patient education is likely an importan...
In people with Parkinson's disease, does home-based prescribed exercise improve balance-related activities and quality of life compared with no intervention? Are the effects of home-based exercise sim...
To evaluate whether a web-based exercise programming system improves adherence to a home exercise program for people with musculoskeletal conditions.
Rationale and design of a Scale-Up Project Evaluating Responsiveness to Home Exercise And Lifestyle Tele-Health (SUPER-HEALTH) in people with physical/mobility disabilities: a type 1 hybrid design effectiveness trial.
Rates of physical inactivity among people with physical disabilities are substantially higher than in the general population and access to home-based tailored exercise programmes is almost non-existen...
Preoperative physical exercise is emerging as a growing field of research globally. There are still challenges in recruiting vulnerable older people, and time constraints in preoperative cancer care t...
Physical exercise is a widely recommended treatment modality for osteoarthritis, which can be performed through a supervised group exercise or a home exercise program. However, up to now o...

The purpose of this study is to determine whether patients are able to participate in a prehabilitation program (prior to the beginning of treatment) which includes: (1) a partially-superv...
The primary aim of the study is to investigate the effects of supervised exercise therapy and education on the immediate response to using a soft knee brace in patients with knee osteoarth...
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
Tapering-off physical activity from vigorous to light, to gradually return the body to pre-exercise condition and metabolic state.
Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
Arthritis is by definition the inflammation of one or more joints, characterized by swelling, pain, warmth, redness and diminished range of joint movement (Oxford Medical Dictionary). There are many different types; Noninflammatory; Osteoarthritis, N...
