Walking speed can be used as an outcome measure for evaluating a physical exercise program, but to do so, relative and absolute reliability need to be established. No studies have evaluated the reliability of maximal walking speed in an aged population with different medical diagnoses. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the… CONTINUE READING
