Did your doctor perform a 6-minute walk test on either you or your child? Was it used as a predictive diagnostic tool or during clinical trials? For clinical trials, the walk test would take place both before treatment begins and after treatment has concluded. If you want more information check out the article here.
What experiences have you had with the 6-minute walk test?
I’ve done this twice for two studies I’m involved in. I’ll have to do both of these again in March and May. I do carry my hiking pole with me and use it for turns in hallway where I have to turn around. I assume there will be more of these in my future 😊🙏
