Real-life Adaptations in Walking Patterns in Patients With Established Peripheral Arterial Disease Assessed Using a Global Positioning System in the Community: A Cohort Study

Real-life Adaptations in Walking Patterns in Patients With Established Peripheral Arterial Disease Assessed Using a Global Positioning System in the Community: A Cohort Study

Initiatives -
Lower extremity peripheral arterial disease (PAD ) is a chronic condition most commonly presenting with intermittent claudication (IC ). Intermittent claudication limits walking ability and may negatively affect health‐related quality of life. Treadmill assessment of maximal walking distance (MWD ) is the gold standard to assess PAD symptom severit. Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study.

Data Collection Event
Global positioning systems (GPS ) have been proposed as reliable and reproducible tool to measure total, mean and maximal walking distances in patients with PAD , in the community setting. Using GPS , our study attempted to explore what happens to the walking ability of patients with IC following no intervention under ‘real‐life’ conditions.
