Endurance (ESWT) and incremental shuttle walk tests (ISWT) before and after rehabilitation (n = 21)

  • 7-150 Significantly different from start (p<0.05).

  • Mean (SE) time, distance walked, heart rate (HR) at the termination of exercise, and Borg breathlessness (BS) and perceived exertion (PE) at the start of the control period and at the start and end of rehabilitation. The mean differences (95% confidence intervals) between the start and end of the control period (visit 3–2), and the start and end of the rehabilitation programme (visit 4–3) are also shown.
