The purpose of this study is to verify the applicability Six minutes walk test and Shuttle walk test in assessing functional capacity in patients with Eisenmenger Syndrome. Patients will u...
Background: The six-minute walk test (6MWT) is widely used as an instrument for assessing the functional capacity of cardiac patients. It's a simple, low cost test that better reflects day...
Primary Objectives 1. To assess the correlation of the pre-operative six-minute walk test results with that of the gold standard exercise test with analysis of gas exchange and mea...
Cerebral Palsy (CP) is a group of permanent disorders of movement and posture, generally accompanied by secondary musculoskeletal problems. Studies in literature showed taht children with ...
Back pain is often accompanied by changes in function. The performance of individuals with their backs on their wills may become more functional. It is believed that the test will present ...
The six-minute walk test (6MWT) is used within clinical and research settings to assess gait performance across a variety of conditions and populations. Commonly, the test is used to identify specific...
Walk tests are commonly used to evaluate walking ability in frail older adults with dementia but their psychometric evidence in this population is lacking.
To determine the construct validity and test re-test reliability of the Six-minute Walk Test (6MWT) and Incremental Shuttle Walk Test (ISWT) in the sub-acute recovery phase following mild-to-moderate ...
We aimed to evaluate the test-retest reliability and construct validity of the six-and two-minute walk tests (6mWT and 2mWT, respectively) in myasthenia gravis (MG) patients.
Dynamic hyperinflation is a major cause of dyspnea in patients with COPD. Dynamic hyperinflation is usually measured with cardiopulmonary exercise testing, but this test requires maximal effort from t...
A measure of endurance tests that show how far and fast an individual can walk without stopping within a certain period of time.
The volume of air contained in the lungs at the end of a maximal inspiration. It is the equivalent to each of the following sums: VITAL CAPACITY plus RESIDUAL VOLUME; INSPIRATORY CAPACITY plus FUNCTIONAL RESIDUAL CAPACITY; TIDAL VOLUME plus INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus functional residual capacity; or tidal volume plus inspiratory reserve volume plus EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus residual volume.
Tests designed to assess language behavior and abilities. They include tests of vocabulary, comprehension, grammar and functional use of language, e.g., Development Sentence Scoring, Receptive-Expressive Emergent Language Scale, Parsons Language Sample, Utah Test of Language Development, Michigan Language Inventory and Verbal Language Development Scale, Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities, Northwestern Syntax Screening Test, Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, Ammons Full-Range Picture Vocabulary Test, and Assessment of Children's Language Comprehension.
An imbalance between myocardial functional requirements and the capacity of the CORONARY VESSELS to supply sufficient blood flow. It is a form of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA (insufficient blood supply to the heart muscle) caused by a decreased capacity of the coronary vessels.
Progressive decline in muscle mass due to aging which results in decreased functional capacity of muscles.
