Feasibility of Strength Training in Patients Hospitalized Due to COPD

To examine the feasibility of progressive unilateral knee-extension strength training using ankle weight cuffs in patients hospitalized due to acute exacerbation in COPD


We decided that feasibility is indicated if: 1) the absolute training loads increase progressively, 2) more than 80% of the planned training sessions are completed, and 3)if the absolute training loads do not exceed 20 kg (2 x10kg weight cuffs) for 90% of patients.
