start of 1:1-Block public summary

Brief Summary in Lay Language

The aim of this study is to develop a joint function test that will allow selection of healthy subjects who have activity related joint discomfort. For this purpose, 3 groups will be examined: healthy subjects, healthy subjects with activity related joint discomfort, and osteoarthritis subjects. As endpoints parameters like repetition until occurrence of a defined discomfort / pain, flexibility, and discomfort after burden will be evaluated at defined time points. To test reliability the test will be repeated after 14 days

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

A 3-arm pilot study will investigate the suitability and reliability of a joint function test. For this purpose, 3 groups will be examined: healthy subjects, healthy subjects with activity related joint discomfort, and osteoarthritis subjects.The joint function test will be done at baseline and at day 14 to confirm test-retest reliability.

Interventions/Observational Groups

  •   Healthy subjects performing the joint function test for a maximum of 10 minutes or reaching joint discomfort of at least 5 on a 11-point Liker scale. The test will be performed at screening , visit 1 and visit 2 with two weeks between the tests. At visit 1 and 2, endpoints will be assessed at defined time points over a time interval of 24h (see secondary endpoints).
  •   Healthy subjects with activity-related join discomfort performing the joint function test for a maximum of 10 min or until reaching joint discomfort of at least 5 on a 11-point Liker scale. The test will be performed at screening, visit 1 and visit 2 with two weeks between the tests. At visit 1 and 2, endpoints will be assessed at defined time points over a time interval of 24h (see secondary endpoints).
  •   Patients with mild-to-moderate osteoarthritis performing the joint function test for a maximum of 10 minutes or reaching joint discomfort of at least 5 on a 11-point Liker scale. The test will be performed at screening, visit 1 and visit 2 with two weeks between the tests. At visit 1 and 2, endpoints will be assessed at defined time points over a time interval of 24h (see secondary endpoints).
