Shorter test may be substituted for a 6-minute walking test in paediatric neuromuscular disorders

Takeaway

  • A 2-minute walking test (2MWT) may be considered as a substitute for a 6-minute walking test (6MWT) when evaluating endurance and function in children with neuromuscular disorders.

Why this matters

  • The 2MWT may be less fatiguing and better tolerated than the 6MWT in children with neuromuscular disorders.
