Abstract

Purpose: This study assessed the reliability and viability of the Home-Heart-Walk (HHW) test, adapting a standardized 6-minute walk test protocol for self-administration. Methods: Twenty-nine volunteers with documented coronary heart disease (CHD) undertook a structured 7-day program using the HHW. Results: The intervention was well received by participants. The intraclass correlation coefficient of the test distance over 7 days was 0.98, and the correlations between investigator and participant measures were high (r = 0.99 for day 1 [first test], r = 0.99 for day 1 [second test], and r = 0.99 on day 7). Conclusion: These data demonstrate the potential of the HHW as a tool to promote and monitor physical activity in community-based settings. These observations require further investigation and testing in other populations.
