1.Primary Outcome
Title Change in Knee Extensor Torque
Hide Description Knee extensor torque (Newton*meter) is calculated on a Biodex dynamometer using an isometric protocol. Trials are completed as a voluntary maximum effort.

2.Primary Outcome
Title Change in Knee Pain
Hide Description Knee pain is assessed subjectively via the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) and the Intermittent and Constant Osteoarthritis Pain (ICOAP) questionnaires.
Time Frame Week 1 and Week 13
Outcome Measure Data Not Reported
3.Secondary Outcome
Title Change in Six Minute Walk Test (6MWT)
Hide Description Participants are asked to walk as far as possible for a total of six minutes at a self-selected pace in an obstruction-free rectangular hallway. Distance traveled is recorded in metres (m).
Time Frame Week 1 and Week 13
Outcome Measure Data Not Reported
4.Secondary Outcome
Title Change in 30-second Chair Stand
Hide Description Participants are asked to cross their arms over their chest and rise and sit back down in a chair as many times as possible in 30 seconds.
Time Frame Week 1 and Week 13
Outcome Measure Data Not Reported
5.Secondary Outcome
Title Change in Timed Up and Go (TUG)
Hide Description Participants are asked to raise from a standard chair, walk forward 3-metres until an orange cone is reached, walk around the cone, then walk back to the chair and sit down. The test is to be completed as quickly and safely as possible without running. The trial is repeated a second time and the quickest time (in seconds) is recorded.
Time Frame Week 1 and Week 13
Outcome Measure Data Not Reported
6.Secondary Outcome
Title Change in Stair Ascent and Descent
Hide Description Participants are asked to climb a standard flight of 9 stairs as quickly and safely as possible without compromising safety. Stair ascent and descent are assessed individually. Time to climb the stairs are recorded (in seconds) and averaged over two trials.
Time Frame Week 1 and Week 13
Outcome Measure Data Not Reported
7.Secondary Outcome
Title Change in Subjective Scales
Hide Description The Centre of Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (19-items), the Athens Insomnia Scale (8-items), and the Perceived Stress Scale (10-items) will be given to the participants to gather information on feelings of depression, sleeping patterns, and perceived stress, respectively.
Time Frame Week 1 and Week 13
Outcome Measure Data Not Reported
8.Secondary Outcome
Title Change in Cardiovascular Fitness
Hide Description Cardiovascular fitness is assessed using a sub maximal oxygen consumption cycle ergometer test. Heart rate is monitored using a Polar Heart Rate monitor and the test is terminated upon one of two conditions: a) volitional fatigue, or b) within 10 beats of 85% of the age-predicted maximum heart rate is achieved. Values are recorded in mL/kg/min.
Time Frame Week 1 and Week 13
Outcome Measure Data Not Reported
9.Secondary Outcome
Title Change in Biomechanical Outcomes
Hide Description Participants will be asked to partake in a complete kinematic, kinetic, and electromyographic analysis of gait and static postures using floor-embedded force plates, a 9-camera motion capture system, and a wireless electromyography system. Knee adduction moment (KAM; Nm/kg), normalized electromyography to a percentage of their maximal effort (%MVIC), and muscular co-activation (%) are the variables of interest.
