AIR project aims to develop and promote a physical activity (PA) exercise program for subjects operated of total knee/hip replacement, to be followed after their discharge and rehabilitation treatment. The subjects will also be monitored about the adherence to the proposed program and in regards to any changes in lifestyle relatively to physical activity. This study will be carried out by involving surgeons, nurses, physiotherapists, graduates in movement science and patients, during and beyond the end of the normal health care. The aims of the project are- Identification of a PA exercise program suitable for people with knee/hip replacement, to improve physical function (balance, proprioception, rom, posture, muscular trophism) and quality of life (pain, fear of falling, autonomy during daily activities, socialization and prevention of depressive states).- Data collection through a survey on the consideration and understanding of "everyday" PA in relation to quality of life.- Promotion of the recovery of any sport activity interrupted before the operation.- Raising awareness of stakeholders and decision makers about the promotion of physical and sport activity aimed at subjects who have undergone knee or hip prostheses.- Evaluation of adherence to the proposed PA.- Involvement of the sport community and high education institutions to promote specific courses based on physical activity programs for individuals with total knee or hip arthroplasty. In the scientific literature, there are evidences and experiences on the effectiveness of physical activity but there is no "good practice" shared and accepted within the European system; there is also a lack of adequate promotion to explain the benefits and how to perform physical activity after the operations. The project aims to analyze local experiences in Europe and implement this "good practice", pledging to disseminate it at European level through the partnership structure and other actions.

Abstract

AIR project aims to develop and promote a physical activity (PA) exercise program for subjects operated of total knee/hip replacement, to be followed after their discharge and rehabilitation treatment. The subjects will also be monitored about the adherence to the proposed program and in regards to any changes in lifestyle relatively to physical activity. This study will be carried out by involving surgeons, nurses, physiotherapists, graduates in movement science and patients, during and beyond the end of the normal health care. The aims of the project are- Identification of a PA exercise program suitable for people with knee/hip replacement, to improve physical function (balance, proprioception, rom, posture, muscular trophism) and quality of life (pain, fear of falling, autonomy during daily activities, socialization and prevention of depressive states).- Data collection through a survey on the consideration and understanding of "everyday" PA in relation to quality of life.- Promotion of the recovery of any sport activity interrupted before the operation.- Raising awareness of stakeholders and decision makers about the promotion of physical and sport activity aimed at subjects who have undergone knee or hip prostheses.- Evaluation of adherence to the proposed PA.- Involvement of the sport community and high education institutions to promote specific courses based on physical activity programs for individuals with total knee or hip arthroplasty. In the scientific literature, there are evidences and experiences on the effectiveness of physical activity but there is no "good practice" shared and accepted within the European system; there is also a lack of adequate promotion to explain the benefits and how to perform physical activity after the operations. The project aims to analyze local experiences in Europe and implement this "good practice", pledging to disseminate it at European level through the partnership structure and other actions.
