Use of Wearable Tech to Increase Physical Activity in Inpatient Rehabilitation for Patients With Chronic Pain

2019-07-29 13:47:43 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aim of this project is to evaluate whether use of wearable tech increases levels of physical activity in patients participating in inpatient rehabilitation for chronic pain.

Description

Chronic pain is a vast problem with profound consequences for individuals and societies. Exercise and physical activity is an important part of the treatment for chronic pain. Use of wearable tech might be a way to help facilitate physical activity in patients with chronic pain. Here it will be evaluated whether use of wearable tech giving feedback about the user`s activity level increases physical activity in patients participating in inpatient rehabilitation for chronic pain. The control group will be wearing the same wearable tech as the intervention group, but they will not receive any feedback about their activity level.

The feedback application will give participants in the intervention group information about the number of PAI they earn each week. PAI is short for personal activity Intelligence. You earn PAI points every time your heart rate increases: The higher heart rate, the faster you earn PAI. Previous research have shown that those who achieve 100 PAI or more every week over time live for an average of more than eight years longer than others.

During the study all participants will take part in a traditional inpatient rehabilitation program. The program consist of two periods at the rehabilitation center with two weeks at home in-between. The study will take place during the two periods at the senter and the period at home. Time spent on physical activity and number of earned PAI's will be counted during the period at home.
