6min walk test norms

Post by Dowls » Wed Jan 31, 2007 6:26 pm

simple question, i am looking for some normative data for the 6 minute walk test.

I have data for seniors, ie over 55yrs, but nothing for any other population group. I work with alot of morbidly obese, COPD, CAGS, and joint replacement patients and have yet to find a good set of data, any help most appreciated

Why not use the Rockport test?
