The walking distance in 155 patients with intermittent claudication was measured on a treadmill at various speeds and angles of inclination. The results were compared with the claudication distances noted in the patients' histories. No correlation was found between the two values. It is concluded that the subjective walking distance cannot be used as a quantitative measure of the patient's walking ability, and therefore of the stage of the disease.

    Coordination of the respiratory rhythm with the rhythm of limb movements has often been observed during rhythmical exercise (e.g. in locomotion). It is usually associated with changes in the respiratory time course, but not in the locomotor rhythm. Therefore, we hypothesised that in walking, the...

    To the practicing clinician, it seems obvious that limb hemodynamics would be the primary determinant of walking distance. However, other determinants, such as skeletal muscle metabolism, may play a role. Accordingly, in the current study, we examined the relationship between measures of limb...
