This study aimed to evaluate sports activities after total knee arthroplasty in an Asian cohort using 2011 Knee Society scoring system. The average scores for satisfaction and expectation about sports-related activities were 4.9 (61%) and 3.5 (70%), respectively. Most patients mainly opted for low-impact sports. Multivariate analysis showed that higher score of ‘standard activities’ and ‘walking & standing’ better range of motion, and older age were associated with higher scores of satisfaction and expectation about sports-related activities. In conclusion, improvement of activities of daily living could provide higher satisfaction and expectation about performing recreational sports, workout and gym activities.
