Brief Summary:
The primary aim of this study is to determine the effects of pre-surgery exercise known as Prehabilitation, on functional outcomes for patients following Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) surgery. The hypothesis is patients that receive effective pre-surgery prehabilitation will demonstrate improved recovery as measured by the 6-minute walk (6MW) test at one month post surgery.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 60 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: Prospective randomized controlled trial with repeated measures pre and post-surgery. Consecutive patients which meet inclusion and exclusion criteria and consent to participate will be evaluated two months or more pre-operatively. After completion of office testing at the pre-surgery/pre-exercise time point, randomization will be completed using a gender stratified randomized sequence generated prior to subject recruitment.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Prehabilitation Exercise
Receives Prehabilitation exercise program for three times a week for eight weeks of direct outpatient exercise instruction.
Other: Prehabilitation exercise

Three times weekly exercise program of strengthening, balance and functional activities.

Weekly evaluation and progression with daily use of the Borg Rating of Perceived Exertion (RPE) supplemented with Heart Rate (HR) and Blood Pressure as needed to target the moderate intensity training level (40-60% HR Max) or above as appropriate to each individual.


No Intervention: Control
Receives the usual standard of care which is a one time Strength and Flexibility written home exercise program provided during total joint education pre-surgery class.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of Six-minute walk test over time [ Time Frame: Six months: from baseline through completion of the study at approximately three months after surgery ]
    Assesses distance walked over six minutes at a preferred walking speed


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change of Manual muscle tests of hip flexion, extension, abduction; knee flexion, extension and ankle dorsiflexion over time [ Time Frame: Average of six months: from baseline through completion of the study at approximately three months after surgery ]
    Standard muscle testing positions quantified using the MicroFET2

  2. Change of Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) over time [ Time Frame: Average of six months: from baseline through completion of the study at approximately three months after surgery ]
    Self-reported outcome questionnaire
