Specifični cilj istraživanja je, korištenjem standardnog upitnika, procijeniti tri domene: bol u zglobovima, procjena pokretljivosti i poteškoće u obavljanju tjelesnih aktivnosti. Nacrt studije: Retrospektivna studija provedena je na Odjelu traumatologije i ortopedije, Opće županijske bolnice u Požegi. Ispitanici i metode: Ispitivanu skupinu čini 51 bolesnik s degenerativnim promjenama na zglobu koljena kojima je ugrađena totalna endoproteza zgloba koljena te su liječeni na Odjelu traumatologije i ortopedije Opće županijske bolnice Požega. Istraživanje je provedeno u ožujku i travnju 2016. godine. U studiju su uključeni bolesnici stariji od 60 godina života s IV. stupnjem artroze zgloba koljena. Rezultati: Preračunom na skalu od 0 – 100, medijan jačine boli je 80, medijan pokretljivosti 88, medijan tegoba prilikom obavljanja tjelesne aktivnosti 79 te medijan kvalitete života 77. Zaključak: Analizom rezultata dobivenih korištenjem standardiziranog upitnika može se reći kako je u većine ispitanika prisutna jaka bol, velika nepokretljivost i povećane tegobe prilikom obavljanja tjelesne aktivnosti.
