  1. 1patients that replied to the six and twelve months follow-up questionnaire; 2 ITTLOCF: if six months follow-up data were missing, it was assumed that the physical activity were the same as at baseline, if twelve and six months follow-up data were missing, it was assumed that the physical activity were the same as at baseline, if twelve months follow-up data were missing, it was assumed that the physical activity were the same as at six months follow-up; 3 Between group effects of the split-plot anova (LgMET-min/week: the physical activity data were logarithmized to the base of 10 due to skewed distribution), adjustment for multiple comparisons: Bonferroni; * significant at the significance level < 0.05
