RATIONALE: Increasing physical activity is a key therapeutic aim in COPD. Pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) improves exercise capacity, but there is conflicting evidence regarding its ability to improve physical activity levels. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether using pedometers as an adjunct to PR can enhance time spent in at least moderate intensity physical activity (time ≥ 3METs) in people with COPD. METHODS: In this single-blinded randomized controlled trial, participants were assigned 1:1 to receive control (PR comprising 8 weeks, two supervised sessions/week) or intervention (PR plus pedometer-directed step targets, reviewed weekly for 8 weeks)...

Multidisciplinary treatments have shown to be effective for fibromyalgia. We report detailed functional outcomes of patients with fibromyalgia who attended a 3-month Multidisciplinary treatment program. The hypothesis was that patients would have increased functional status, physical activity level, and exercise regularity after attending this program. We performed a retrospective analysis of a randomized, simple blinded clinical trial. The inclusion criteria consisted of female sex, a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, age 18-60  and 3-8 years of schooling...
