  "abstract": "<p><strong>PURPOSE</strong>: To describe technology use and physiotherapy support provided to participants to improve<br>\nmobility and physical activity in the community phase of the AMOUNT trial.<br>\n<strong>METHODS</strong>: Process evaluation including participants (mean age 70 (SD18)) randomised to the<br>\nintervention group (n=149). Intervention was additional to standard rehabilitation, prescribed using a<br>\nprotocol which matched games/exercises from eight technologies to the participant&rsquo;s mobility limitations.<br>\nTechnologies included video and computer games/exercises, tablet applications and activity monitors.<br>\nParticipants were taught to use the technologies during inpatient rehabilitation and were then discharged<br>\nhome to use the technologies &ge; 5 days a week for the remainder of the 6-month trial. Trial protocol required<br>\nthe physiotherapist to provide support every 1&ndash;2 weeks using a health coaching approach. Intervention<br>\ndatasheets were audited to determine technology use and frequency, duration, mode and type of support<br>\nprovided.<br>\n<strong>RESULTS</strong>: Participants used an average of 2 (SD 1) technologies with 98% participants using an activity<br>\nmonitor. Physiotherapists had contact with participants on average 15 (SD 5) times (approximately every<br>\n11 days), consisting of 6 (SD 3) home visits (46 min duration), 8 (SD 4) phone calls (8 min duration) and<br>\n1 other (email, video conference, hospital) type of contact. Contact primarily incorporated health coaching<br>\n(68%) with 8% for technology support. Topics discussed during health coaching included discussing data<br>\nfrom prescribed technologies (79%), physical activity and mobility status (70%) and adherence (64%).<br>\n<strong>CONCLUSIONS</strong>: Technologies to support ongoing exercise are likely to become increasingly important<br>\nas the proportion of older people in the population increases and rehabilitation resources become limited.<br>\nA health coaching model to support technology use post hospitalisation is feasible. Some support can be<br>\nprovided remotely limiting the need for frequent home visits.</p>",
