Abstract

The aim of this pilot randomized controlled trial was to investigate the safety and feasibility of an 8-week exercise training intervention for improving fitness in patients awaiting liver transplantation. We hypothesized that exercise training would not result in any serious adverse events and would be feasible. Finally,
we explored whether exercise training would improve cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF), exercise capacity, muscular strength, and health-related quality of life.
