ACTIVATE Trial

ACTIVATE Trial

What is the ACTIVATE Trial?

The ACTIVity And TEchnology (ACTIVATE) Trial is a randomised control trial using wearable technology activity monitors (the Garmin vivofit 2®) to help breast cancer survivors get active.

Increasing physical activity after a breast cancer diagnosis has been shown to improve survival and other health outcomes, yet many women who have had breast cancer struggle to implement such changes unaided. The ACTIVATE Trial will test whether using wearable technology can increase physical activity and reduce sitting time amongst women who have undergone treatment for breast cancer.

Funding for the ACTIVATE Trial was obtained from World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF UK), as part of the WCRF International grant programme.
