Baseline Characteristics and Group Differences for Defined Levels of Neurological Disabilitya

  • a Results are reported as mean (standard deviation) unless otherwise indicated. EDSS=Kurtzke Expanded Disability Status Scale, BMI=body mass index, 2MWT=2-minute walk test, CIS=Checklist of Individual Strength, V̇o2peak=peak oxygen consumption, V̇emax=maximal ventilation, Wmax=maximal power output, time to V̇o2peak=exercise duration, V̇o2=oxygen consumption, RER=respiratory exchange ratio, %HRmax=maximal heart rate relative to age-predicted maximal heart rate.

  • b Significantly different (P<.05) from value for low level of disability.

  • c Significantly different (P<.05) from value for mild level of disability.

  • d Percentage of participants in whom a plateau in V̇o2 occurred with increasing power.

  • e As rated with the Borg Scale of Perceived Exertion.
