    I would find this hilarious ... if it didn't make me angry and want to cry. Positively confirms in writing that in the Dutch study there was no change in actigraphy, so what did they conclude from this? That the interventions did not improve patients actual physical function? No ... of course they didn't! They concluded it did not reinforce their screwed thinking about subjective measures, so it was therefore "not a good outcome measure" ... so they ditched it! You really could not make this stuff up could you!!! I suppose there is some truth in it not being a good outcome measure ... for the investigators who still need to cling to their fantasy-riddled ideas. What the hell are they on?!
