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

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

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

7. Resistance (RES)            _____ lbs. Weights

_____ lbs. Pulleys

Level _____ Resistance Bands
