Multimodal Prehabilitation to Enhance Functional Recovery After Colorectal Surgery: a Randomized Controlled Trial
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment
six minute walk test
6 MWT is a patient-relevant measure of functional walking capacity, reflective of the activities of daily living. Subjects are instructed to walk back and forth, in a 20 m stretch of hallway, for six minutes, at a pace that would make them tired by the end of the walk. The distance in meters is recorded. Reference equations are available for calculating percent of age- and gender-specific norms.
