  1. Linear mixed model with NEADL and Barthel Index, respectively, as dependent variable, patient as random factor, time point (baseline, 4 months and 12 months after surgery) as fixed factor, and treatment group, site (Oslo versus Trondheim), age, sex, fracture type, dwelling at home (versus nursing home), and the interaction between time and treatment as covariates
