Abstract: Walking is frequently used in the exercise rehabilitation of patients with COPD. Walking ability can be characterized by the two-parameter hyperbolic relationship between endurance and speed. One parameter, critical walk speed (s_critical), represents the maximum speed that can be endured indefinitely. The purpose of this study was to: (1) determine the effect of pulmonary rehabilitation on the critical speed and (2) compare the critical speed with the speed chosen during self-paced walking.
