Brief Summary:
Although exercise training of haemodialysis patients is associated with generally positive outcomes few haemodialysis units routinely offer intradialytic exercise therapy. This is often related to financial cost and/or staffing limitations. Home-based programs could be an alternative means of providing exercise benefits without associated implementation costs The aim of this study was to compare the effects of 4 weeks intradialytic versus home based exercise for haemodialysis patients regarding adherence and strength gains.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from Baseline Short Physical Performance Battery at 4 months [ Time Frame: At the beginning and after 4 months ]
    Assess lower extremity, which includes objective performance-based measure of balance (side-by-side, semi-tandem and tandem), endurance (4m gait speed) and strength (five chair stands). Each component was scored from 0 to 4 and when summed yielded Short Physical Performance Battery scores between 0 (poor) and 12 (best).

  2. Change from Baseline One leg standing test at 4 months [ Time Frame: At the beginning and after 4 months ]
    Consist in maintain one leg stance for as long as possible. The test was considered normal if the one leg standing time reached 45 seconds.

  3. Change from Baseline Timed Up and Go test at 4 months [ Time Frame: At the beginning and after 4 months ]
    To stand up from a standard arms chair, walk 3 meters, turn back the cone walk back and sit down to the chair. The time in seconds is record.

  4. Change from Baseline Sit to stand to sit 10 and 60 at 4 months [ Time Frame: At the beginning and after 4 months ]
    For the Sit To Stand 10 participant has to stand up and sit down 10 times and the time needed is record; while for the Sit to stand to sit 60 the participant consist in measures how many repetition the participant can to stand up and sit down during 60 seconds

  5. Change from Baseline One leg heel rise at 4 months [ Time Frame: At the beginning and after 4 months ]
    It measures the strength in the triceps surae in the one leg standing position and has to rise the heel. It measures how many repetitions the participants is can do

  6. Change from Baseline Handgrip Strength at 4 months [ Time Frame: At the beginning and after 4 months ]
    To measure the amount of strength developed by each hand in kg

  7. Change from Baseline Six minutes walking test at 4 months [ Time Frame: At the beginning and after 4 months ]
    To walk the longest distance possible in 6 minutes by walking continuously the 20 or 30 metres indicated on the floor. It measures the distance in meters
