Motivate RA - RA and exercise study from Liverpool John Moores University


Hello all,

Hope this is okay to post here - I heard on Twitter about a new study being run out of Liverpool John Moores Uni looking at whether 'mobile health technology' (ie fitness trackers and apps) can help with exercise in RA patients. They are currently recruiting participants who fit the following criteria:

· Aged 18-65 years old 

· Have a clinical diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis. 

· Be able to provide informed consent.  

· Have access to a smart phone with WiFi/data plan.  

Edit - UK residents only

There are some exclusion criteria too - I have the list if you want details (bit long to post), or you can contact the chap doing the study directly. It's all being done remotely, so should be easy to do. More details at the below link:

Hope this helps someone - may be a little motivational nudge for some of us (ie ME!)
