Study design
Purpose of the study
Prevention
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Potential participants will be sourced from GP practices and media coverage in the Ipswich Area. GPs will refer patients to the study who may benefit from a structured moderate-to-vigorous intensity physical activity programme and who meet the eligibility criteria. Allocation will be concealed by central randomisation by computer.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Randomisation will be by Permuted block randomisation with the stratifying factors sex (M,F) and age (<55, 55+). Randomisation will occur after the baseline assessment.
Masking / blinding
Open (masking not used)

Summary
Brief summary
Type 2 diabetes can be prevented and managed through lifestyle modification programmes that include physical activity of a moderate intensity for at least 150 min per week in conjunction with dietary modification and caloric restriction. Yet, only 40% of people diagnosed with the disease are meeting these physical activity targets. This study will investigate if the active video game Nintendo WiiTM sports programme is a safe form of physical activity and has the potential of increasing the self-efficacy of sedentary people with diabetes to increase their overall physical activity levels.
