The SHAPE study has been designed to help participants with Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) achieve more physical activity through an exercise support program.
The research team will be determining if a tele-health exercise program achieves a similar increase in walking distance when compared to a centre-based exercise program.
Participation in the study involves:
- providing information on your medical history,
- completing two (2) face-to-face health assessments at UNSW Sydney,
- completing questionnaires relating to your PAD and health, and
- attending either face-to-face or tele-health exercise sessions with the specialist team three (3) times per week for 12 weeks.
The consultations and the health assessments will occur over a 12-week period.
