Abstract [en]

Disease-modifying biological agents and other drug regimens have substantially improved control of disease activity and joint damage in people with rheumatoid arthritis of the hand. However, commensurate changes in function and quality of life are not always noted. Tailored hand exercises might provide additional improvements, but evidence is lacking. We estimated the eff ectiveness and cost-eff ectiveness of tailored hand exercises in addition to usual care during 12 months.
