Impact on disease activity of the use of a wearable activity tracker in spondyloarthritis: a randomized controlled trial

Abstract : Objective: to evaluate the impact of a wearable activity tracker (WAT) used to encourage physical activity on disease activity in patients with spondylarthritis. Methods: in this randomized controlled trial consisting of three 12-week steps, patients with spondylarthritis were randomized into a tracker group (TG), or a non-tracker group (NTG). Disease activity, performance (6-Minute Walk Test), and quality of life (SF36) were assessed at 12, 24, and 36 weeks. The primary endpoint was the evolution of flares between baseline and 12 weeks. Results: altogether, 108 patients were included in the study. At 12 weeks, both groups presented an improvement in the number of flares mean change (∆), -0.32 [95% CI -0.66;0.02] in the TG and ∆, -0.38 [95% CI -0.68;60.09] in the NTG, but the between-group evolution differences were not significant (p = 0.87). The 6MWT improved in both groups at 12, 24, and 36 weeks (p < 0.01, and p < 0.001, respectively). We observed an improvement in different dimensions of SF36 at 12 weeks (p < 0.01). Multivariate analysis showed an improvement over time in moderate flares (p<0.01) and performance (p < 0.01) without the influence of a WAT (p = 0.29, and p=0.66). Conclusions: use of a WAT did not show any effect on the number of flares, performance, or quality of life in patients with spondyloarthritis. This study confirmed the benefits of physical activity on disease activity, quality of life, and physical performance in patients with spondyloarthritis.
