OBJECTIVES To determine criterion validity of the 400-m walk component of the Long Distance Corridor Walk (LDCW) and develop equations for estimating peak oxygen consumption (VO2) from 400-m time and factors intrinsic to test performance (e.g., heart rate (HR) and systolic blood pressure (SBP) response) in older adults. DESIGN Cross-sectional validation study. SETTING Gerontology Research Center, National Institute on Aging, Baltimore, Maryland. PARTICIPANTS Healthy volunteers (56 men and… CONTINUE READING
