Summary
Brief summary
Aim is to determine the overall level of activity generated in everyday living by patients with COPD and co-morbidities compared to a COPD population without co-morbidities. The hypothesis is that people with COPD and co-morbid conditions generate less physical activity in every day living compared to people living with COPD with no co-morbid conditions.
