Individuals with kidney failure undergoing maintenance hemodialysis (HD) have a plethora of comorbidities that adversely impact their health and quality of life (QOL). Muscle wasting, bone disorders, and cardiovascular complications are especially common. In addition, nearly two-thirds of HD patients die within 5 years of starting long-term dialysis treatment. Research suggests that HD patient’s health and QOL may improve by increasing their physical activity levels, so many have argued that exercise programs should be included as a part of their standard of care. We suggest novel research approaches for increasing physical activity levels in this population. This will include moving toward using more personalized approaches that include physical activity as a component of a comprehensive behavior change intervention strategy.
