Bente Holm, Hvidovre University Hospital

Brief Summary:
By this study the investigators wish to (1) quantify hip strength and functional-performance deficits at discharge after fast-track total hip arthroplasty (THA), and (2) investigate if changes in thigh circumferences, or hip pain are correlated to changes in hip strength and functional-performance after fast-track THA.

Condition or disease
Osteoarthrosis Patients With Total Hip Arthroplasty

Detailed Description:
The investigators intend to use the results to optimize the rehabilitation programs for THA patients shortly after surgery
