Staying Active with Arthritis in the Digital Age

How can online physical activity trackers affect your arthritis care?

Heard of Apple’s new Apple Watch – a wearable device that serves as a fitness and health tracker? Devices like this are fast becoming the most popular new aid to support people to stay active.

An ongoing study at the Arthritis Research Centre of Canada is asking whether there is a use for these devices in arthritis care – what do you think?

If you live in Alberta or Ontario, you are invited to take part in a focus group to share your views. During the focus group, the research team led by Dr. Linda Li will be presenting on a selection of physical activity trackers.

No experience with the devices is necessary to participate.

Focus groups will be held at a time and location that are convenient for participants. A small honorarium will be offered to all participants.
