    Does the Walkway Length Matter in Six-Minute Walk Test: An Experimental Crossover Study
    Author(s): Ali Albarrati* and Rakan Nazer

    Background: The six-minute walk test is an integrated measure of cardiopulmonary and musculoskeletal systems and exercise capacity. Healthcare providers usually performed the test on a 10-meter track instead of a 30-meter track due to space constraints. This study examined the influence of track length of 10 meters and 30 meters tracks on the 6MWT and cardiopulmonary indices in healthy adults and validates a reference equation for 6MWT on Arab populations. Methods: An experimental randomized crossover study was conducted on healthy participants in this study. Participants with resting blood pressure reading >140/90 mmHg and body mass index >35 kg/m2 were excluded. Participants performed the test on 10 meters and 30 meters tracks and repeated the test one week later in reverse order. The rate of perceived exertion and heart rate were re.. Read More»
