Validation of a 2 Minute Step Test for Assessing Functional Improvement
Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation
Although many cardiopulmonary patients require home care services, the 6-minute walk test (6MWT) is unusable in most dwellings for objectively evaluating exercise capacity because it requires a 20 -30 meter hallway. To meet this need, we developed a 2-minute step test (2MST): stepping up and down an 8 inch step for 2 minutes (1 step = bilateral step up + step down). Purpose: Evaluate the statistical validity, reproducibility, and sensitivity of the 2MST in assessing exercise capacity. Method:doi:10.4236/ojtr.2017.52007 fatcat:6opvk4jonjfbnevvsft7pxcrhu
