TIME Trial Summary

This trial will compare two exercises programs for older adults to see if one encourages them to be more consistent and to try harder, potentially improving leg function.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for individuals aged 65 or older who have trouble walking and can access the internet. Participants must be vaccinated against COVID-19 and not planning to move, undergo surgery, or join other physical activity research within a year. Those with chest pain during exercise or cognitive impairment cannot join.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The TIME trial compares two home-based exercise programs: FAST (focused on strength training) and BAND TOGETHER (similar to Silver Sneakers with strength, balance, aerobic exercises). The goal is to see if FAST leads to better leg function by promoting consistency and effort in workouts.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While specific side effects are not listed for these interventions, general risks may include muscle soreness, fatigue from exercise, potential strain injuries from overexertion, and falls due to balance issues while exercising.
