Brief Summary:

This is an objective cohort study using objective recording of physical activity (accelerometry) during and after the GLAiD intervention to investigate if a sedentary behavior change by participating in an 6-week physiotherapy-led exercise and education program (GLAiD) occurs. The GLAiD intervention is an education and exercise based intervention aiming at decreasing pain and improving function in patients with knee osteoarthritis.

The primary outcome is change in objective recorded physical activity between baseline and follow-up.
