Abstract

Motivational strategies to increase adherence to a long-term physical activity regimen have been unsuccessful for kidney transplant recipients. We propose a theory-based SystemCHANGE™ + Activity Tracker framework. The SystemCHANGE™ + Activity Tracker approach combines small, individual-driven experiments for increasing physical activity with visual feedback from the wireless activity tracker, which enables clients to study their progress in increasing physical activity. The SystemCHANGE™ + Activity Tracker approach is designed to empower kidney transplant recipients to improve and maintain their physical activity behavior.
