RATIONALE Little is known about the role of physical activity in the course of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). OBJECTIVES To assess changes in physical activity in COPD in relation to severity stages and changes in other disease components, and to evaluate the longitudinal association between sustained physical inactivity and disease progression. METHODS In this prospective cohort study, we measured physical activity (multisensory armband), airflow obstruction (FEV1), health… 
Physical Activity Is Associated with Attenuated Disease Progression in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
TLDR
Higher PA is associated with attenuated decline in lung function and reduced health status (symptoms domain) deterioration in moderate-to-very severe COPD patients.
Physical Activity Is Associated with Attenuated Disease Progression in COPD
TLDR
Higher PA is associated with attenuated decline in lung function and reduced health status (symptoms domain) deterioration in moderate-to-very severe COPD patients.
Daily physical activity and related risk factors in COPD
TLDR
Breathlessness score is a better predictor of the DPA than lung function and handgrip strength and time spent on moderate activity was related to cardiovascular risk factors including arterial stiffness.
Longitudinal Relationship Between Growth Differentiation Factor 11 and Physical Activity in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
TLDR
GDF11 could be a useful humoral factor that reflects the physical activity in COPD and is positively correlated with the change in the daily physical activity.
Physical Activity in Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease on Long-Term Oxygen Therapy: A Cross-Sectional Study
TLDR
COPD patients on LTOT perform less physical activity than patients not needing LTOT, both with and without exercise-induced desaturations, and there was no significant correlation between mean SpO2 and 6MWD in any group.
Interventions to modify physical activity in patients with COPD: where do we go from here?
Assessing participation in physical activity as an outcome in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has received growing attention in recent years [1, 2]. This can be explained
Determinants of Physical Activity in Patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: A 5-Year Prospective Follow-Up Study
TLDR
Longitudinal analysis identified independent determinants of physical activity, which allows the identification of patients having low physical activity levels and who may benefit from physical activity interventions.
Physical Inactivity as a Missing Link in Understanding the Progression of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
TLDR
The decline in PA over time in subjects with COPD was not statistically different between patients in different severity stages, but given the lower starting points, patients with more severe disease lost proportionally more PA, which would suggest roughly 5–6% of annual decline for the total cohort.
Patterns and predictors of low physical activity in patients with stable COPD: a longitudinal study
TLDR
The change between levels of low and nonlow physical activity is dynamic, especially for recovery, and annual transitions toward new states of low physical activity are likely among patients with dyspnea or poor performance on the five sit-to-stand test.

TLDR
Higher values of systemic inflammation and left cardiac dysfunction are associated with reduced physical activity in patients with COPD.
Physical activity in patients with COPD
TLDR
Physical activity is reduced in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease from Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease stage II/ body mass index, airway obstruction, dyspnoea, exercise capacity score 1.
Longitudinal Changes in Directly Measured Physical Activity in Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: THE TRAJECTORY OF CHANGE
TLDR
Directly measured physical activity decreases over time in COPD, similar to other outcomes of importance.
Decrease of physical activity in patients with COPD in the course of the disease
TLDR
Physical activity decreases across all severity stages of COPD in the course of the disease with relative changes being most prominent in severe stages.
Changes in physical activity and all-cause mortality in COPD
TLDR
Observational data suggest that it is important to assess and encourage physical activity in the earliest stages of COPD in order to maintain a physical activity level that is as high as possible, as this is associated with better prognosis.
Six-minute-walk distance and accelerometry predict outcomes in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease independent of Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease 2011 Group.
TLDR
Exercise tolerance and daily physical activity are important predictors of hospitalization and mortality in COPD, independent of GOLD 2011 classification.
Physical activity and clinical and functional status in COPD.
TLDR
More physically active COPD patients show better functional status in terms of Dlco, Pemax, 6MWD, Vo(2)peak, and systemic inflammation.
Daily physical activity in subjects with newly diagnosed COPD
TLDR
The reduction in PA starts early in the disease, even when subjects are not yet diagnosed with COPD, and is more pronounced in subjects with mild symptoms of dyspnoea, lower levels of diffusion capacity and exercise capacity.
Characteristics of physical activities in daily life in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
TLDR
Physical activities and movement intensity in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are assessed with the DynaPort activity monitor and functional exercise capacity is the strongest correlate of physical activities in daily life.
