Patient’s Name:___________________________                    Date:_______________


A.   Six Minute Walk Test

      1. Total Distance Walked in 6 minutes

          ________ laps x 260 feet = ________ feet walked in 6 minutes
                     1 lap
      2. Calculate speed in miles per hour (mph)

         Miles per hour (mph) = ( _____ ___feet walked in 6 minutes) (10) = ________ mph
                                      5280 feet in one mile

      3. Calculate metabolic equivalents (METs)

         METs = (________ mph) (26.83 meters/min) (0.1 mL*kg-1*min-1) + (3.5 mL*kg-1*min-1)
                                       (3.5 mL*kg-1*min-1)

         METs = ________


B.    Duke Activity Status Index (DASI)

      1. Duke Activity Status Index (Sum of “yes” replies) = ________

      2. Calculate VO2 peak

         Formula: VO2 peak (mL*kg-1*min-1) = 0.43 x DASI + 9.6

         VO2 peak (mL*kg-1*min-1) = 0.43 x ________ + 9.6 = ________ mL*kg-1*min-1

      3. Conversion from VO2 peak to peak METs

         Conversion Factor: 1 MET = 3.5 mL*kg-1*min-1 VO2

         Formula: METs = VO2 peak (mL*kg-1*min-1)
                         3.5 mL*kg-1*min-1

         Calculate peak METs = ________(mL*kg-1*min-1) = ________ METs
                                 3.5 mL*kg-1*min-1

      4. Initial Exercise MET Level = 50% of calculated peak METs = ________ METs
C. Initial Exercise Levels

  Exercise Modality                  Initial Workload                 MET Level

1. Nu-Step (NS)                Level _____ Steps/Minute _____        _____ METs

2. Rower (RW)                  Level _____ Watts _____               _____ METs

3. Airdyne Bicycle (AD-Bike)   Level _____                           _____ METs

4. Arm Ergometer (AE)          RPM _____ Watts _____                 _____ METs

5. Treadmill (TM)              _____ mph _____ % grade               _____ METs

6. Recumbent Bicycle (RB)      Level _____ Watts _____               _____ METs

7. Resistance (RES)            _____ lbs. Weights

                               _____ lbs. Pulleys

                               Level _____ Resistance Bands
