Welcome to the CORKA Trial website. As a potential participant you can find out information about the trial and how to take part. As a participating site you can see the latest news, Recruitment figures and download trial documents and CRFs. The CORKA study was developed in response to a commissioned call by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Health Technology Assessment (HTA) programme for research into a functional home based rehabilitation programme for patients who may be at risk of poor outcome after knee replacement. Participants will be randomised to one of two arms, ‘home-based rehabilitation’ or ‘Usual Care’. Those in the usual care arm will receive a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 6 sessions of physiotherapy as delivered locally, e.g. class, one to one, etc. Those in the intervention arm will receive 7 sessions of a functional rehabilitation programme over a 12 week timescale. The intervention will be delivered using physiotherapists and physiotherapy assistants in the participants’ home. Participants will be followed up at 6 months and 12 months.
