This study is conducted in the Community Hospital in Svendborg (OUH Svendborg Sygehus) in collaboration with University of Southern Denmark and Odense University Hospital.
The overall purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of preoperatively delivered neuromuscular exercise on self perceived physical function, pain and Quality of Life in patients undergoing total hip or knee replacement. Secondary area of interest is physical performance, muscle function, and level of physical activity.
The project will be conducted in two phases:
- A pilot project focusing on the logistics of the upcoming randomized controlled trial (RCT) and determination of test-retest reliability of specific muscle strength variables for the patients of interest
- A randomized and controlled trial where the intervention is preoperative neuromuscular exercise and the controls receive standard instructions.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

The period before a surgical operation.
Care given during the period prior to undergoing surgery when psychological and physical preparations are made according to the special needs of the individual patient. This period spans the time between admission to the hospital to the time the surgery begins. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
The use of peripheral nerve stimulation to assess transmission at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION, especially in the response to anesthetics, such as the intensity of NEUROMUSCULAR BLOCKADE by NEUROMUSCULAR BLOCKING AGENTS.
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.
