Individuals with Down syndrome (DS) exhibit reduced aerobic capacity with reduced peak heart rate (HRpeak). This condition is often coexistent with higher level of obesity compared to individuals without DS. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects of obesity and Down syndrome (DS) on peak heart rate (HRpeak) and peak oxygen consumption (VO2peak) in children and adults both with and without intellectual disabilities (ID)s. VO2peak and HRpeak from individualized treadmill tests on… CONTINUE READING
