  • OBJECTIVE To determine whether walking with a rollator by persons 75 years of age or older is of sufficient intensity to improve aerobic fitness. DESIGN A cross-sectional cohort study. SETTING University movement laboratory. PARTICIPANTS Fifteen subjects 75 years of age or older (mean age, 83.7 y) who could only walk by using a rollator. INTERVENTIONS Not applicable. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES During 6 minutes of self-paced treadmill walking using a rollator at a mean walking speed of 0.6… CONTINUE READING
