Activity trackers have demonstrated promise in promoting physical activity in chronic disease populations, but few studies describe how participants were educated to use the activity tracker. The purpose of this study was to describe the Teach-Back method used to instruct older kidney transplant recipients to use an activity tracker/app called, Fitbit and describe the facilitators/challenges of wearing the Fitbit. A feasibility design was used for implementing the use of the Fitbit. A four week follow-up questionnaire was administered to obtain the participants opinions on wearing the Fitbit. The leading facilitator was the desire to track daily steps. The main challenge was securing the band. Reports of challenges were minimal, suggesting the Teach-Back method is feasible for teaching this population how to use an activity tracker.
