Physical activity has been linked to positive health outcomes in individuals with chronic disease. Individuals with chronic kidney failure can benefit from becoming more physically active, yet many of these individuals choose not to do so. It is unclear how much and what type of activity these patients do on a daily basis and/or whether there are differences in activity on dialysis days when compared to nondialysis days. A longitudinal pilot study, based on social cognitive theory, was conducted to assess the feasibility of electronic self-monitoring by hemodialysis patients. In this study, one group electronically self monitored dietary and fluid intake and another group electronically self monitored physical activity. The purpose of this report is to describe levels and types of physical activity in these participants. The physical activity sample consisted of 20 middle-aged males and females who were primarily African American and receiving outpatient hemodialysis at an inner-city center. The participants were given a personal digital assistant (PDA) and received instructions on how to record the amount and type of activity on a daily basis. Eight different types of physical activity (walking, biking, weight lifting, shopping, mowing, child care, housework, cooking) were self monitored and the participants used a clock interface to select the amount of time they engaged in each activity. The subjects self monitored activity for six weeks. The self reported data were downloaded from the PDA files three times per week during the self monitoring period. Data collection is complete and analysis is in progress. The amount and type of daily activity will be analyzed using descriptive statistics. In addition, the amount and type of activity completed on dialysis and nondialysis days will also be described. The results from this study will be used to design further studies to explore ways to promote regular physical activity in this population.
