Randomized controlled trial on 105 adults (72 women) with a lower limb orthopedic condition (cognitively alert and able to walk) in inpatient rehabilitation center to determine whether adults with lower limb orthopedic conditions who received additional weekend physical therapy (PT) and occupational therapy (OT) demonstrated increased habitual physical activity. The control group received PT and OT Monday to Friday; in addition, the experimental group also received a full Saturday PT and OT service. Participants wore an activity monitor for 7 days.
