Abstract

NICOLAI, S. P. A., P. LEFFERS, L. M. KRUIDENIER, R. A. DE BIE, M. H. PRINS, and J. A. W. TEIJINK. Extending the Range of Treadmill Testing for Patients with Intermittent Claudication. Med. Sci. Sports Exerc., Vol. 42, No. 4, pp. 640-645, 2010. Purpose: There is a need to evaluate patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) with a limited or extended walking distance. We aimed to enable an estimation of walking distance as measured on a frequently used "standard" graded (3.2 km.h(-1), 2% increase per 2 min) protocol for walking distances measured on protocols with a lower or higher workload. Methods: Patients with PAD and an absolute claudication distance (ACD) of
