Writing in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, 04/05/2013 Dr. Rose DK et al look at the predictive power of the results of Exercise Tolerance Testing and the 6MWT (six minute walk test). The group compare the scores to the number of physical therapy rehabilitation sessions – treadmill and overground Locomotor Training Program (LTP), needed to achieve 20 minutes stepping duration in these patients. ETT is a measure of cardiac performance where as 6MWT is more a measure of neurological impairment and muscular condition.
