Coaching and exercise for better walking

The ComeBACK trial
The University of Sydney is running a large research study to support people in becoming more active and is looking for volunteers.

ComeBACK is a research study investigating 2 programs aimed at improving physical activity levels in people who have walking difficulties.

Participants will receive support to be more active. This will involve access to a website and printed booklet and may also involve phone coaching or text messages


The ComeBACK trial aims to recruit 600 people from a number of hospital and community sites.

We are looking for people:

  • Aged 18 years or older

  • Who are able to walk (i.e. not full time wheelchair user)

  • Who find walking 800m (half a mile) difficult

  • Doing less than 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity physical activity


Ethics committee approval number: X18-0234
