This chronic and progressive condition is a leading cause of activity restriction and functional disability among older adults. Exercise appears to be an effective treatment approach for those diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis. Research consistently highlights improvements in physical function and quality of life for those engaging in routine physical activity programs. Despite the meaningful findings, promoting the adoption and maintenance of a consistent exercise program remains a formidable challenge. IMPACT explores the employment of a more novel concept for delivering and enhancing exercise maintenance among a particularly challenged population – older adults with knee osteoarthritis.
