NEAT!2 Sedentary Behavior Reduction for Individuals With Past or Present Knee Symptoms, Injuries, or Surgeries

2019-06-21 03:48:32 | BioPortfolio


This study will evaluate the effectiveness of an mHealth sedentary reduction program over a 6-month period of time in adults with past or present knee symptoms, injuries, or surgeries.


Sedentary behavior, in excess, is associated with numerous health consequences including poor physical function. Older adults with symptomatic knee pain spend the majority of their waking hours engaging in sedentary behaviors. To reduce the risk of disability, improve quality of life, and prevent deterioration in physical function, it is imperative the investigators develop ways to reduce sedentary time. Smartphone ownership among older adults is increasing and may provide a scalable opportunity to disseminate a sedentary reduction intervention. Therefore, this study aims to evaluate and compare changes in sedentary behavior and physical function between an mHealth sedentary reduction, mHealth intervention plus coaching, and delayed mHealth group. Sedentary behavior and physical function will be assessed at baseline, 1 month, 3 months, and 6 months after randomization.
