Brief Summary in Lay Language

Regular physical activity is a clearly proven health resource in prevention and rehabilitation. Physical activity can help prevent cardiovascular disease, diabetes II and obesity as well as numerous other physical and mental disorders. After operations, the rehabilitation phase is used to prevent chronic and degenerative diseases and to speed up the healing process. The immobilization of the shoulder joint is a necessary component in the postoperative treatment following shoulder injuries or reconstructive operative interventions in case of shoulder conditions caused by degenerative diseases. Physical activity in this context is thus potentially very significant for elderly patients. The aim of this study is thus to measure daily activity in the case of an immobilized shoulder joint in order to derive a transfer to the postoperative therapy program following shoulder operations and to expand possible recommendations for rehabilitation therapy. 21 healthy volunteers were immobilized in an orthosis (DJO Ultrasling III) for 10 hours on two consecutive days. In the following week, activity was measured on the same days without the orthosis. Activity was measured by accelerometer based step count StepWatchTMActivity Monitor (SAM). A questionnaire was administered to evaluate subjective activity.

Brief Summary in Scientific Language

Purpose
The harmful effect of sedentary behavior does not receive much attention in orthopedic surgery even though immobilization, especially of the lower extremity, has been associated with reduced physical activity. Immobilization of the shoulder is common after reconstructive shoulder surgery and could also potentially lead to reduced physical activity and have a negative effect on a patient’s general health.
Methods
21 healthy volunteers were immobilized in an orthosis (DJO Ultrasling III) for 10 hours on two consecutive days. In the following week, activity was measured on the same days without the orthosis. Activity was measured by accelerometer based step count StepWatchTMActivity Monitor (SAM). Average age was 26 +/-3 years. A questionnaire was administered to evaluate subjective activity.

Primary Outcome

Measurement was carried out on two consecutive days for 10 hours. First measurement took place with immobilized shoulder in an orthosis. In the following week, activity was measured on the same days without the orthosis. Activity was measured by accelerometer based step count StepWatchTMActivity Monitor (SAM). A questionnaire was administered to evaluate subjective activity at both times of activity measurement.
