Most patients with rheumatoid arthritis tend to be physically inactive and spend more time in sedentary behaviors compared with the general population. This inactive lifestyle can lead to serious health consequences, for example, increased risk of cardiovascular disease. For this reason, there is an interest in increasing participation in physical activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The relatively new approach of reducing sedentary behavior and replacing it with light-intensity physical activity has been shown to be feasible and effective in promoting physical activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. However, methods to facilitate this behavior have not yet been fully explored.
