The 2 Minute Walk Test is a valuable tool for assessing walking capacity and functional mobility in various populations, offering a quick snapshot of an individual’s endurance and physical function.

The main outcome parameter of the 2 Minute Walk Test is the total distance walked (Fig-1, top left). Apart from this, the ReGo system offers a variety of other outcome parameters to gain a deeper insight into a patient’s performance.

Fig-1: Understanding the 2 Minute Walk Test and Its Outcome Parameters

In this example, a young female athlete suffered a slipping of the right femoral head and was only allowed to partially bear weight on her right leg after surgery. For this reason, the mean and maximum forces on the right are lower than on the left leg (Fig-1, bottom left).

This is accompanied by the fact that the right gait line is significantly shorter than the left because the foot was carefully placed on the ground (Fig-1, middle).

The Load Histogram (Fig-1, right) is a valuable tool to check whether the patient can comply with the partial weight-bearing requirement: In this example, the patient loaded her right leg with 30 kg for 10% of all stance phases, which is too high as the limit was only 20 kg.
