Study Summary

This trial tests if an online program can help adults with knee replacements get active, reduce pain, and improve physical function.

Who is the study for?
This study is for adults who've had a knee replacement at least a year ago and currently do less than an hour of moderate exercise weekly. Participants must be willing to wear an activity monitor, have internet access, and speak English. Those with mobility issues from other conditions or upcoming surgeries that limit activity can't join.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The Energize! Study tests an online physical activity program designed to increase exercise intensity, reduce pain, and improve function in adults post-knee replacement. The effects will be measured after 3 months (post-intervention) and again at 6 months to see if benefits last.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since the intervention involves physical activity, potential side effects may include muscle soreness or joint discomfort due to increased levels of exercise. However, specific side effects are not listed as it's a non-drug intervention.
