Results Over the 12 weeks, the number of steps in the CDR group increased incrementally. However, the step count in the HE group did not change significantly, and the step count in the CON group decreased gradually. The rates of change in each group at six and 12 weeks were 22.8% and 25.3% for the CDR group, -3.7% and 0.4% for the HE group, and -2.8% and -21.9% for the CON group.

Baseline Characteristics Participants were recruited from three centers, of which two are in Osaka prefecture and the other is in Shiga prefecture. Inclusion criteria were as follows: aged 65 years or older, able to walk indoors by themselves (regardless of the use of auxiliary tools), able to understand the purpose of the study, and providing consent. Exclusion criteria were as follows: pacemaker implantation and Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) score under 24.
Participant flow Participants meeting the criteria were assigned to three groups, namely custom-made daily routine intervention (CDR), home-based exercise intervention (HE), and control (CON) according to their days of attending the day care center. Based on the results of a draw performed by a person uninvolved in the study, we defined the CDR group as those who attended the center on Wednesday or Saturday, the HE group as those who attended on Tuesday or Friday, and the CON group as those who attended on the remaining days. If there were participants who attended on multiple days, the independent person allocated them randomly.
Adverse events One participant in the CDR group experienced irritation on her back while wearing the accelerometer. Although there were no abnormal findings on the skin, we followed the request of the participant and withdrew her from the study. One participant in the CON group experienced irritation on the wrist because of the accelerometer. When the participant removed the band and briefly massaged the area the irritation stopped, and she immediately placed the band back on her wrist.
Outcome measures For the objective measurement of number of steps, the primary outcome, we used a wrist-worn three-axis accelerometer (UP2, Jawbone Inc., San Francisco, CA) and measured the number of steps in 24 hours for eight days. As secondary incidental outcomes, we evaluated activities of daily living (ADL) and physical functions. For ADL we used the Functional Independence Measure (FIM; Granger, Hamilton, Linacre, Heinemann, & Wright, 1993). For the physical function evaluation, we performed knee extension muscle strength evaluations and the Timed Up and Go (TUG) test.
