Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine, in a randomized clinical trial of 439 individuals with knee osteoarthritis, the incremental cost-effectiveness of aerobic versus weight resistance training, compared with an education control intervention. Methods: Cost estimates of the intervention were based upon the cost of purchasing from the community similar services to provide exercise or health education. Effect at 18 months was measured using several variables, including: self-reported disability score. 6-min walking distance, stair climb, Lifting and carrying task, car task, and measures of pain frequency and pain intensity on ambulation and transfer. Results: The total cost of the educational intervention was $343.98 per participant. The aerobic exercise intervention cost $323.55 per participant, andthe resistance training intervention cost $325.20 per participant. On all but two of the outcome variables, the incremental savings per incremental effect for the resistance exercise group was greater than for the aerobic exercise group. Conclusion: The data obtained from this study suggest that, compared with an education control, resistance training for seniors with knee osteoarthritis is more economically efficient than aerobic exercise in improving physical function. However, the magnitude of the difference in efficiency between the two approaches is small.
