|Official Title:||A 12 Week Pedometer Based Walking Intervention to Enhance Physical Activity Performance Following Total Hip Replacement-A Pilot Study|
|Study Start Date :||January 2014|
|Actual Primary Completion Date :||September 2014|
|Actual Study Completion Date :||September 2014|
No Intervention: Control group.
Natural progession based on Step count is recorded with a pedometer for 12 weeks.
Experimental: Targeted protocol with Pedometer
A step based targeted protocol is given along with a pedometer for 12 weeks post surgery.
Procedure: Targetted protocol with pedometer
12 week protocol based on targetted steps are given to the patient along with a pedometer.
- Change in Physical Activity following Hip Replacement. [ Time Frame: pre-operative,Immediate post -operative,1st week post operative and 3 months post operative. ]Free-living physical activity performance will be recorded using an Accelerometer(ActivPAL).A small CE marked physical activity monitor, ActivPAL (PAL Technologies Ltd. Glasgow, UK) will be attached to the anterior thigh (of the non-operated leg) using a water proof surgical dressing material. This monitor, with proven validity is 50mm x 35mm x 7mm and weighs 30g. The fixing with the dressing allows it to be worn continually without affecting any patient activity such as washing / showering etc. This remains in place for the duration of the recording. It can record date for up to 7 days. The time spent upright, time spent stepping and the numbers of steps taken are recorded continuously over multiday periods. The intervention group will be encouraged to increase their physical activity levels. This will be based on a measure of stepping activity and a pedometer will act as a guideline for how many steps are required per day.
