Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: animated home-based exercises (Wii-fit)
using the Wii game console by Nintendo
Device: animated home-based exercises (Wii-fit)
Other Name: software Wii-fit plus

Procedure: conventional home-based exercise program
Active Comparator: conventional home-based exercise program
by using a compilation with 31 exercises especially for rheumatoid arthritis patients
Device: animated home-based exercises (Wii-fit)
Other Name: software Wii-fit plus

Procedure: conventional home-based exercise program



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. feasibility of the animated home-based physical exercise program [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    to be assessed by qualitative interview analysis


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. muscle strenght measurement [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    isometric measurement of 9 muscle groups by using a handheld dynamometer

  2. 6-minute walk test [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    standardised walk test (walk course with a minimum of 30 meters in length) on flat ground where patients can choose their own intensity of exercise and are allowed to stop and rest during the test. total walk distance after 6 minutes will be evaluated.

  3. respiratory function test [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    peak expiratory flow taken by a peak flow meter (liter/ Minute)

  4. Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Indes (HAQ-DI) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    standardised Patient reported outcome measurement (8 categories regarding disabilities in daily life)

  5. patient's visual analogue scale for pain [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    patients self-reported judgement on a 100 mm scale

  6. patient's visual analogue scale for disease activity [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    patients self-reported judgement on a 100 mm scale

  7. short form 36 questionnaire (SF36) [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
    standardised patient reported outcome measurement (11categories regarding quality of life)
