Targeted rehabilitation to improve outcome after total knee replacement (TRIO): study protocol for a randomised controlled trial
Trials, 02/03/2014Simpson AH, et al.
The aim of the TRIO study is to determine whether stratifying care by targeting physiotherapy to those individuals performing poorly following knee replacement is effective in improving the one year outcomes. Authors are also investigating whether the structure of the physiotherapy provision itself influences outcomes. The primary outcome measure is the Oxford Knee Score. Secondary outcomes are patient satisfaction, functional ability, pain scores and cost–effectiveness.
