Clinical Trial Summary

The investigators will assess feasibility and acceptability of the Tele-Tai Chi (TC) intervention; explore changes in clinically relevant outcome measures including: physical activity, self-efficacy, quality of life, cognitive function, balance, gait, and evaluate changes in TC proficiency. To achieve this, the investigators are running a single-arm study for older adults that involves a 12-week home-based Tai Chi intervention. Study participation includes four remote and/or in-person (at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital) visits to evaluate study participants (mobility tests and questionnaires).


Clinical Trial Description

The overall goal of the study is to test the delivery of a novel Tele-Tai Chi (TC) intervention in a single-arm feasibility study for community-dwelling TC-naìˆve older adults. The investigators will assess feasibility and acceptability of the Tele-TC intervention and its specific components through both qualitative and quantitative feedback, as well as the systematic tracking of adherence data to inform future trials and potential clinical use of the Tele-TC system. The investigators will also explore changes in outcome measures including physical activity, self-efficacy, quality of life, cognition, balance and gait, and evaluate changes in TC proficiency. Participants will be assessed at 4 timepoints over the course of the 12-week Tele-TC intervention: at baseline, at 4 weeks, at 8 weeks, and at 12 weeks. Study participants will be instructed to train on their own at least three times a week and to participate in one-on-one live sessions with TC instructors two or more times during the study period. ;
