18 Apr Delivery of Enhance Fitness Trial (DEFT)
Arthritis is a common condition in the United States, and a leading cause of pain and disability. Physical exercise is recommended for managing arthritis, but access to evidence-based exercise programs is limited, particularly in rural areas. Therefore, the investigators propose to evaluate remote delivery of an evidence-based exercise program called Enhance Fitness (EF) that is recommended for arthritis management. The primary purpose of this study is to determine if remotely delivered EF has similar effects as in-person EF for improving arthritis pain and physical abilities.
