Study Summary

This trial will test if a telehealth exercise platform can help reduce frailty in patients after bone marrow transplant.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults over 18 who are at least two years post-bone marrow transplant, in remission, and identified as pre-frail or frail. They must be able to consent, perform study procedures, speak English, and have internet plus a smartphone. Excluded are those with exercise contraindications like acute infections or physical disabilities, regular exercisers (>60 mins/week), those with serious heart conditions, or women who are pregnant/planning pregnancy.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial tests a telehealth exercise program aimed at reducing frailty after bone marrow transplant. Participants will use devices like smartphones to follow online videos covering exercises such as coordination and balance training. The goal is to improve physical function and design future telehealth routines for cancer patients.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since the intervention involves an exercise program rather than medication, side effects may include typical risks associated with physical activity such as muscle soreness or strain injuries especially if not performed correctly.
