Multivariate Pattern Analysis of Physical Activity and Cartilage Health in Osteoarthritis

Mobilize Center postdoc Eni Halilaj presented her work on the role of physical activity on early progression of knee osteoarthritis (OA) at the World Congress on Osteoarthritis (OARSI) 2017 in April. Using data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative, she and co-authors recently showed that multivariate statistical methods can generate new insights on the ranges of activity intensity that are protective and detrimental for joint health, which are missed by conventional statistical tools. Read abstract and view poster.
