Study type

Description of intervention(s) / exposure
12 week exercise programme with action and coping plans. The exercise programme consists of general strnegthening and mobility exercises done at the departmental gymnasium, and a brisk walking done at home. The gym sessions are one hour in duration two to three times per week, and the walking is done two to three times per week for about 30 minutes. The action plans involve the patient indicating when, where, and how they will undertake their gym exercise sessions and the whe, where, how and with whom they undertake the walking.
