Being physically active plays a key role in staying healthy and is an effective way of dealing with many medical conditions. Walking is an important activity and forms the main exercise of a large percentage of the population. The results of this study will help health professionals measure how active patients are in their daily lives. Health professionals can use an activity monitor to measure how much patients walk, and with a simple treadmill test, can set patient goals and develop a program to target any problems.
