Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Exercise Capacity
Individuals from the female gender; age range of 20 to 30 years old; considered healthy (i.e. with no diagnosed health condition; considered sedentary (i.e. performing less than 150 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity per week); will be asked to volunteer in the research and perform a exercise capacity test.
Other: Shuttle walk test
the test requires patients to walk at a gradually increasing speed, up and down a 10 m course identified by two marker cones, until they reach a symptom limited maximum. The walking speed was externally paced and controlled by a series of beeps played on a compact disk.
Other Names:
  • Shuttle Walking Test
  • Exercise Capacity Test

Detailed Description:

The Shuttle Walk Test requires patients to walk at a gradually increasing speed, up and down a 10 meter corridor identified by two marker cones, until they reach a symptom limited maximum. The walking speed was externally paced and controlled by a series of beeps played on a compact disk.
