The Centre for Health, Exercise and Sports Medicine in the Department of Physiotherapy is conducting an Australian wide study evaluating electronic and digital resources (eg computer and mobile phone) to help people manage their knee symptoms.

 

You may be suitable if you:

  • Are 45 years old or older,
  • have activity related knee pain,
  • have morning stiffness,
  • have experienced knee discomfort for 3 months or more.
  • You’ll also need home internet access and a mobile phone.

 

 

The study lasts for 6 months. If you take part, during your 6-month participation you’ll be asked to:

  • Complete a range of questions at home, online, about your knee symptoms;
  • Be asked to access an electronic resource, for 6 months. The resource provides recommendations to help you manage your painful knee (this might include using a computer with internet access and/or your mobile phone);
  • At 6 months, complete another range of questions at home, online, to see if your knee symptoms have changed
