6 minute walk test

The 6 minute walk test is an endurance test relevant for weaker persons like patients and elderly people.

Instructions

1. Mark up a 30 meter distance in a hallway or a corridor. The distance can vary between 20 and 50 meter without affecting the outcome of the test.

2. It is important to give a standardized encouragement to the persons being tested. Only use phrases like: "You are doing well" and "Keep up the good work".

3. Enter distance and other data to compare with reference values. Values from 75% and higher are considered to be within normal range.

Reference value
100
meters
Percentage of normal
50

Gender
Age

Distance

Several different reference values have been published. The values used here are from Enright & Sherill 1998, as these are based on a large number of subjects who have not previously been accustomed to the test. The values are on men and women in the age range 40-80 years. Note that other reference values that are best on customization to the test typically are around 100 meter higher.
