Session Type: ACR Concurrent Abstract Session
Session Time: 9:00AM-10:30AM
Results: Baseline characteristics were similar between groups. In both groups, significant increases in mean number and percent change of steps/day from baseline were observed; a significantly greater improvement in both outcomes was observed for Group A versus Group B (1199 vs 467, P=.0345 for number of steps/day; 35.81 vs 11.48, P=0.0189 for percent change of steps/day). In the 6-minute walk test, there was a greater improvement from baseline for Group A versus Group B in reducing pain (−55.3% vs −33.8%, P=0.0068) and increasing distance (18.2% vs 6.3%, P=0.9583). There was a greater number of patients (65.4%)/physicians (67.3%) who would be likely/very likely to use/recommend the devices than those who would be unlikely to do so. In both groups, PAM-13 scores improved from baseline however, no statistically significant differences were observed between groups (5.0% vs 6.9%, P=0.9931). The AE profiles were similar for the two arms.
